Talk: Christianity in Picasso’s Art

Thursday July 13 at 7:30pm

Speaker: Jesús Ángel Miguel García, Director of The Spanish Institute. Research Fellow at St. Paul's College

This lecture will examine Pablo Picasso's use of Christian iconography, imagery, symbolism and meaning of some of his secular and religious paintings, a theme usually ignored and misunderstood by art critics and unknown to most people.

Jesús Ángel Miguel García was born in Burgos, Spain. As founder and director of the Spanish Institute in Winnipeg, he has been heralded as "an excellent and inspiring teacher", and by the Canadian and Spanish media as “internationally recognized as a premier linguistic instructor”, “the leading Spanish-language specialist in Winnipeg”, "ambassador of the Spanish language in Canada", and recognized by the Consul General of Spain for his “excellent organization”.

He has been interviewed and featured by the BBC, CBC, local and international media, and weekly by Magnificat Radio, while writing for numerous national and international publications on education, language and culture. He has given lectures and seminars at European and Canadian universities, and numerous institutions and associations.
