Diego El Cigala

Duke Performances presents Diego El Cigala at the Carolina Theatre - 8:00 PM

With a husky, passionate lyricism honed in the cafés cantantes of Madrid, Diego El Cigala has become an international sensation — the world’s greatest living flamenco singer. His catalog includes a triumphant million-selling collaboration with Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés; more recently, the three-time GRAMMY winner and Deutsche Grammophon artist recorded Tango & Cigala, an “electrifying” tango record filled “with passion, fierceness, searing toughness, and a disarming directness” (Guardian).

 

Portada-Diego-El-Cigala

 

Paco de Lucia described El Cigala as possessing “one of the most beautiful flamenco voices of our time, a voice of sweetness that flows over everything.” Join us at the Carolina Theatre for this rare Durham presentation of flamenco royalty.

 

Presented by Duke Performances at the Carolina Theatre, 309 West Morgan Street, Durham, NC 27701.

Miro: The Experience of Seeing

Last Chance to View Miro: The Experience of Seeing

The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Mirό (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Mirό was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist’s life, Mirό: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró’s work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain’s national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía).

 

Miró lived in Paris from 1920 until 1932, regularly traveling back to Spain until the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 prevented his return home. He had become known for his dream-like paintings with a personal system of signs and symbols; once war broke out he introduced overtly political commentary into his work. Miró consistently exercised his personal freedom in his work, which in the face of political turmoil is infused with irony and anger as much as joy and tenderness. In 1940, after the war ended, Miró returned to Spain. Brilliantly inventive, the artist continually pushed the boundaries of art and had a surge of creative ideas in the decades following World War II, when he embraced entirely new techniques and media. In 1956 Miró moved to a new studio on Mallorca, where for the first time he could gather together the entirety of his production. This gave him direct access to all of his works and allowed him to take stock of the artistic achievements of four decades. He was particularly engaged by the relationship between painting and sculpture, which had not been at the center of his earliest work.

Miró: The Experience of Seeing is comprised entirely of works created between 1963 and the artist’s death in 1983, all of which come from the collection of the Museo Reina Sofía. These later works distill the styles, subjects and motifs of Miró’s work into their most essential and universal forms, as the artist sought to create an experience that would transcend the physical object.


Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
