"Invisible Emigrants" starts in Gijón (Asturias) its Spanish tour


The exhibition ‘Invisible Emigrants. Spaniards in the US (1868-1945)’ starts its tour around Spain in Gijón (Asturias), thanks to the collaboration between the Fundación Consejo España-EE.UU. and the Fundación Municipal de Cultura, Educación y Universidad Popular of Gijón. After its display in the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea Condeduque, in Madrid, where it received more than 21,000 visitors, the exhibition can be visited at the Centro de Cultura Antiguo Instituto from November 18, 2021, to February 6, 2022.

As part of the complementary activities to the exhibition, the Fundación Consejo España – EE.UU. and the Muséu del Pueblu d'Asturies launch an international open call that aims to involve citizens in the task of recovering the historical and documentary legacy of the Spanish diaspora in the United States from the late 19th to early 20th centuries and, especially, the one led by Asturians. This international call will culminate on September 25 at the "Xuntanza Trasatlántica", a festive day that will host the Muséu del Pueblu d'Asturies and that will be replicated simultaneously on the other side of the Atlantic.
