The exhibition “TALASOPHILIA. Blue Heritage & Ocean Culture for Sustainability” officially opens today!
A journey through the maritime space with a global approach that considers the oceans as an essential element for humanity and aims to spread the value of the oceans as a means to ensure that present and future generations evolve towards a more respectful and harmonious relationship with the nature of which we are part.
Curated by the Surf and Nature Alliance and Juanjo G. Trueba, this exhibition is pure love for the sea, reflected in 16 panels completely impregnated with saltpetre, in which the words of Juanjo himself are mixed with images of different members or collaborators of the Alliance, such as:
- Antonio Bretones @antonio_bretones Lucia Griggi @luciagriggi
- Jorge Hunt @jorge_hunt
- Hallvard Kollveit @hallvardkolltveit
- Sergio @sergiogarciasurfadictos
- Mariasun @mariasun13
- Jesus Busto @desdelacroa
- Matias Rivas @matiasrivas___
- Raul Gunche
- Borja Saenz de Miera
Our special mention goes to the collaborating institutions such as:
- Saja Nansa
- European Maritime and Fisheries Fund of the European Union
- Government of Cantabria
- University of Cantabria.
The exhibition will be on display in April at the Castillo del Rey Exhibition Hall in San Vicente de la Barquera, Cantabria, and later in other fishing villages.
