Yeats Madrid

In light of the celebrations taking place world-wide to honour the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of Ireland’s most beloved poets, W. B. Yeats, the Embassy and the Yeats Society in Madrid will be holding an art exhibition “Of this place” which will take place in the Ateneo de Madrid (Sala Prado 19), Calle Prado 19, from 2-14 June (11.30-9pm daily).

The exhibition features 32 paintings and sculptures by eight contemporary Irish visual artists inspired by the very landscapes that helped shape Yeats’ poetry.

To complement the art from Ireland, Madrid designer Sandra Ruiz Bellew will exhibit her “Minnaloushe Poetry in Jewellery” collection, inspired by Yeats’ poetry and the women in his life. There will also be a third exhibition on the life and works of Yeats, “La Vida y Obra de William Butler Yeats”, courtesy of the Irish Embassy.

On Thursday 11 June at 7pm Embassy Staff will be hosting a special evening at the Ateneo to honour the poet with readings, song and music. We hope to see you there.

Admission to the exhibition is free and everyone is welcome.
