October 5th-22nd – Hospitalets Park

New Exhibition Träden de tala (“The Trees Speak”)

This is a unique exhibition with deep local roots, both figuratively and literally. Many of the trees in Hospitalets Park are unique due to their size and rarity – and in some cases, they can only be found here. In this exhibition, artists have chosen individual trees to work with, expressing their creativity through various artistic forms such as performance, sculpture, video, or painting.
