ARTIKA presents Lita Cabellut’s Blood Wedding in New York
The world presentation of Blood Wedding by Lita Cabellut took place on Wednesday 19th February in New York. Marc Buil, Global Director of ARTIKA, Juan Ribalta, CEO of ARTIKA and the artist herself hosted the event to present this joint project, which is the result of more than four years of work and represents an authentic tribute to the Spanish poet and dramatist Federico García Lorca.
The event was held at La Nacional, New York’s Spanish cultural centre, where the Andalusian author stayed in 1929. Cabellut expressed her great admiration for Lorca and defended the tone of condemnation that exists in the theatrical tragedy, as a celebration of individual freedom that the Spanish artist shares and mirrors in her own work.
The presentation for Blood Wedding was widely attended by the main media organs, in addition to Rafael Conde de Saro, the General Consul of Spain in New York, the American art critic and historian Robert C. Morgan, María Bassols, Spain’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, and Gema Cortijo, Executive Director of the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
