Starlight night: Light Stars

On April 20, the Ilatargi Astronomical Group of Bergara and the astronomy department of Aranzadi will install telescopes on the terrace of the Donostia City Hall to enjoy the stars under the slogan "Starlight gaua: Turn on the stars".

To facilitate the vision of the stars the City will turn off the lights of the terrace for two hours and provide different activities open to the public and free. Among them, a screen will be installed inside the town hall where, through the Stellarium program, explanations will be given to better understand what we observe in the sky with the naked eye.

In addition, a space will be created where adults and young people can make drawings or other contributions on the light of the stars and light pollution to complete a mural among all of them.

The blackout will begin once it is dark, from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and the other activities will take place simultaneously.In this way they want to raise awareness about light pollution and claim the right of the population to enjoy the contemplation of the sky.

Rachel Mellon Collection in Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum
to Mar 1

Rachel Mellon Collection in Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum

The Rachel L. Mellon Collection exhibition, under the direction of Hubert de Givenchy, presents to the public a careful selection of garments and documents that offers a different perspective of Balenciaga’s Haute Couture, through the personal filter of this extraordinary lady’s taste and way of life.

Rachel Lambert Mellon (1910–2014), known as Bunny, was one of the grand dames of high society in 20th century America. Heiress to a major fortune, philanthropist, art collector, designer of gardens (among others, the White House Rose Garden), personal friend of the Kennedy family, and wife of banking magnate and prominent patron of the arts, Paul Mellon, Mrs. Mellon was the archetype of Balenciaga's clientele — wealthy, sensitive, and exclusive.

Her extraordinary life features a permanent search for beauty, which she collected and surrounded herself with. She saw it in works of art, rare books, precious objects, jewelry, gardens, carefully staged environments, or her own wardrobe, which for more than a decade she trust to Balenciaga.

In addition to a great client, Bunny Mellon was also a personal friend of Balenciaga, a relationship that was reflected in the adaptations and special designs that were made at the Maison for her and which Balenciaga himself transferred to Huber de Givenchy at his retirement.

Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa currently home to a large part of the creations that Balenciaga made for Mrs. Mellon, whose legacy is the most important collection originating from a single donor in the museum’s archives.

Malas madres | Lives hanging by a string
to Aug 10

Malas madres | Lives hanging by a string

  • Tabakalera Zentroa, San Sebastian (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Malas madres / Lives hanging by a string is the first of the artistic interventions that will occupy different spaces at Tabakalera. Conceived by artist Jerónimo Hagerman, this installation is comprised of a framework that catches our eye as soon as we enter through Tabakalera's plaza.

From an anthropocentric perspective, in order to connect ourselves with other living beings, we tend to humanise them, just as occurs when naming pets, fictional characters, or plants. Based on this very human behaviour, the installation's plants are commonly known as 'malas madres' ('bad mothers') in Mexico because they push their sprouts out of the nest, while in Spain these plants are known as 'cintas' ('ribbons').
