La Terraza: David de la Mano & Ritmos Raros

September 23, 2019
From: 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM

Located at the Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain, a DC´s historic architectural landmark, La Terraza is a new concpetual space and a cultural experience designed to celebrate Spanish culture and to offer something different every time. La Terraza happens twice a year, September and June, as a way to open and close SPAIN arts & culture cultural season. 

Spanish artist David de la Mano is the artist selected to participate in the second edition of the project Not your Regular Wall. David de la Mano will create new work for the foyer of the Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain. David de la Mano is a Spanish contemporary artist best known for his stunning murals often depicting silhouettes, trees and other monochromatic imagery. His large-scale, black and white pieces provoke reactions among the viewers and encourage their emotions and ideas through a minimalist aesthetic. The artist not only observes others and their social or anti-social behaviour, but explores every corner of social behaviour in his practice. He uses silhouettes of men, women, or the masses as narrative metaphors. Through these figures, he gives poetic visions of the human condition in society and the ways human perceive the world. 

Ritmos Raros is a moving but never ending tropical vinyl nostalgic dancefloor party dedicated to the rare and normally unheard rhythms of Africa, Latin America, India, Caribbean, Brazilian, and the Arab variety. Djs playing at La Terraza are Leon City Sounds and Sir Ramases
