in which Pablo Neruda lived while in Chile, where
he developed most of his literary work, are the
environment and excuse for the paintings of ten
Chilean artists that decided to interpret, in
situ, their impressions of those places inhabited
by Chile's most important poet. The paintings
will be exhibited at Barcelona´s Forum as
part of the celebrations of Neruda´s centennial.
A special report of the project will be shown
by the international service of Chile's
National Television (TVN), as part of the program
"Lo mejor de mi tierra".
"Ten faces for three Chilean houses"
is the name of the project sponsored by the Neruda
Foundation and which includes the work of painters
Irene Domínguez, Alejandro Ortega, Vicente
Rioseco, Sebastián Carretón, Francisco
Ramos, Francisco Alvarez, Ulises Román,
Ana Taulís, Rosemary Scmidt and Titi Gana.
The Isla Negra house-museum
was the first location for the several Art performances
that were organized during the month of May. Then
came activities at Valparaiso´s La Sebastiana
and Santiago's La Chascona.
