Students in Teresa Matilla’s painting course expose work

cartell 2021 expo teresa matillaThe Formentera Department of Culture reports that at 6.00pm this Monday 5 April, students in artist Teresa Matilla’s painting course will pull the curtain back on a show of their creations that is on display at the “Ajuntament Vell” gallery. Participants concentrated on composition, dove deeper into their exploration of textures and, as the instructor explains, “we did our best to offset the effects of the pandemic with complementary insight and exercises via social media”.

Besides pieces crafted during this year’s course, the exhibition will feature creations from last year’s alums, whose 2020 show was called off amid the pandemic. The artwork will range from oil and acrylic to mixed media, a reflection of the range of techniques touched on during classes, with students enlisting recycled material as well.

The show is on view Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

Formentera welcomes back Leonmanso

foto 2021 leonmansoThe Formentera Department of Culture reports that from 8.00pm on Friday 9 April, Leonmanso will give a free concert in the courtyard of Centre Antoni Tur “Gabrielet”. Capacity is limited and seats can be reserved by emailing reserves@conselldeformentera.cat before Thursday 8 April at 10.00am.

Culture chief Susana Labrador said the concert was part of programming around this year’s Balearic Islands Day (Dia de les Illes Balears) — a bill that ultimately happened today after the pandemic forced its postponement in March. Complete safety protocol will be in force during the concert.

Llure Marquès is Leonmanso. He started composing his own songs more than 15 years ago. On the strength of a demo, he was named finalist in contemporary rock and Catalan creativity for IB3’s Rec-Play competition in 2008. There, a second-round win scored him the chance to record his first album, Rinosaure. Quim Torres (Delèn) was at the controls for a follow-up, Jardins de brutes basses (2014), while a third effort, 2018’s Escolta com sona es teu pols, was an album of absolute essentials.

Leonmanso is the musician you would invite to your birthday party, or when you’re making dinner, or before turning in for the day: in fact, he’d pen a song for the occasion. He sings it all, and sings for everyone. And that might be why sometimes, in the words of his producer, the whole world seems like a Leonmanso song —  and not the other way around.

“Color cubano”, photo exhibition on Cuban identity at ‘Ajuntament Vell’ gallery

cartell 2021 joaquim seguiAt 6.00pm Monday 15 March, the “Ajuntament Vell” exhibition space will pull back the curtain on Color cubano, a collection of photos by Mallorca-born and Eivissa-based Joaquim Seguí, a career cardiologist who, in 2011, began honing expert chops as a photographer. The show’s forty photographs were taken on the Caribbean island of Cuba, its inhabitants unquestionably the consummate protagonists of the show. The display is the reflection and result of an eponymous collection of photos put out by Seguí in 2017 which included texts from Cuban poets like Nicolás Guillén and writers like Leonardo Padura, as well as forwards by Omar de León, Carmen Alemany and Fanny Tur.

The photos of Cuba contained in the show are exercises in discretion and respectfulness, and speak to the complex reality of a society which, after years of revolution and trade embargo, fights to forge a new identity without losing sight of its origins, beliefs, culture... and conquests.

The show can be seen from 16 to 27 March 2021, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm. Weekly closure on Sunday and Monday morning.
