Tickets to enjoy this last session are available at www.cactlanzarote.com, at La Casa Amarilla in Arrecife and at the ticket offices of the Centers.
Also, on Saturday, July 21 and 28, the documentary film Las Manos returns. The Auditorio Jameos del Agua will host those days the screening of the emotional film that narrates the origin of the Centers and those who participated in its construction by the hand of César Manrique, with images and photographs, some of them unpublished, of the Lanzarote of half ago century.
The formation of Lanzarote as a hedonistic paradise began in the 60s and had its peak in the following decade. It can be imagined that his training is due to an end of party: the return of Manrique from New York. From its creation, we could deduce that the artist’s purpose was the vindication of the play space: not a leisure space, but a space for the party. It is a paradise of discotheques inside volcanic bubbles in a world on the verge of nuclear catastrophe, created for the rebirth of the Happy Few: the new inhabitants of a lunar landscape in which modern music sounds. This original theme is the axis on which All tomorrow’s parties gravitate, an interesting exhibition that will be inaugurated next Thursday, July 26, at the MIAC-Castillo San José.
Insularia, the exhibition curated by Estefanía Camejo, whose objective is to value the artistic funds of the First Insular Institution included in the MIAC Collection that are located in the central building of the Cabildo de Lanzarote and that, usually, can not be enjoyed by the citizenship, may be visited until next July 28 in the town hall.
The shortage of water was always a wakefulness on the island until in 1960 Manuel Díaz Rijo imagined a sea friend from which to draw fresh water in the same way that until then had been extracted salt from the sea. And to that he dedicated one of the most important projects of his life, launching the first desalination plant in Lanzarote. The exhibition Memories of Water revolves around a process that transformed Lanzarote forever. It can be visited at La Casa Amarilla until next October.
