Encuentros de Pamplona 72-22

International Meeting of Culture, Art and Thought Pamplona, 6-18 October 2022




In 1972 the ALEA group worked hard to organise a cutting-edge cultural and artistic programme at different venues in Pamplona. A contemporary art festival coordinated by painter José Luis Alexanco and musician Luis de Pablo, commissioned by the family of Félix Huarte to set up a series of events in homage to the industrialist, collector and patron of the arts who had died the year before.
