The best exhibitions for (almost) free

By | 26 February, 2016 | 0 comments

There is life beyond the Art Triangle (or Square) in Madrid, and one must be alert to its programme, which is as changing as it is attractive. One of the places to visit is the CBA (Círculo de Bellas Artes), which is very close to Puerta del Sol. Here, you can see curious exhibitions such as Construction Toys. The school of modern architecture. It analyses the influence that toys have had in modern architecture through plans, sketches and different objects. Visit it at Sala Picasso.

At Fundación Telefónica, in the heart of Gran Vía (Access on Calle Fuencarral, 3), you can also find interesting exhibitions without having to pay a penny to go inside. The famous exhibition dedicated to Jules Verne finishes in February but other ones will follow, such as Art in Comic.

Books, starting March 17th, developed by Pablo Valbuena exclusively for the foundation; or Kinematope, which is an experience that transports the spectator to another sensorial reality by wrapping him in light and sound.

MuseoABC is another space where you can enjoy contact with art, or rather illustration in this space, without having to pay (at CBA you pay a symbolic fee). The next exhibition here will be ready from March 11th: Superheroes with ñ, dedicated to Spanish cartoonists who are enjoying success in the United States.

Photography lovers should go to Fundación Mapfre (Calle Bárbara de Braganza, 13), which is currently exhibiting the work of the Chilean artist Paz Errázuriz. Very close to there, on Paseo de Recoletos, 23, the same foundation has programmed visual art exhibitions such as From Divisionism to Futurism. The Dawn of Modern Art in Italy. Here, entry is also free.
