The exhibit will be on view at the Instituto Cervantes’ Intramuros branch from Nov.10, 2022 to Jan. 22, 2023.

This collection of paintings, including those from private collections and those from the artist, was inspired by Zaballero’s years spent in Barcelona and memories of her trips around the Iberian Peninsula from 1957 to 1960 which had a strong impact on her as an artist.

She belongs to what we can define as the postmodern generation of artists who were trained in the spirit of the still revolutionary avant-garde style of the first half of the 20th century. 

Her first artworks developed in an extraordinary period of Philippine painting, from the 50s to the 80s.

Zaballero was one of the Thirteen Artists Awardees in 1978.

“Fondly Remembering Spain” is organized by Instituto Cervantes in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain.
