Spain Fresh Fest #1
The program includes the performance of the Spanish band Svper and a DJ set by Sau Poler among others.
Spain Fresh Fest is a multidisciplinary program of events to take place at NYU’s King Juan Carlos Center (KJCC) and other TBA venues in New York City.
The program introduces Spanish artists that meet “Fresh Culture” principles:
- Young and vibrant.
- They have received awards and have been exhibited (in Spain or Europe).
- Glocal scope (global and local).
This program represents Spain Fresh’s introduction to the American public. Its first edition will focus on concepts such as pastiche, remake, remembrance or amnesia.
