Retratos Cruzados

Exhibition Retratos Cruzados
From 15 September until 12 November, Cervantes Institute, Utrecht
From 15 September until 12 November the Cervantes Institute in Utrecht, in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy in The Hague, will hold the photo exhibition “Retratos cruzados” on the occasion of the 450 anniversary of the beginning of the Eighty Years’ War. The project has been launched by “Gaceta Holandesa”, a website in Spanish on culture and current affairs in the Netherlands.

“Retratos cruzados” consists of 16 photographs of Spanish residents living in the Netherlands and Belgium and Dutch and Belgian Flemish citizens living in Spain, who have been portrayed in places historically related to the Eighty Years’ War, offering a modern perspective of the 450 anniversary.

The different portraits have been made by Alicia Fernández Solla, photographer specialized in documentary photography and co-founder of Gaceta Holandesa.
