The Hispanic Society Museum & Library (HSM&L)—the primary institution dedicated to the preservation, study, understanding, exhibition and enjoyment of the art and culture of the Portuguese-and Spanish-speaking world—is thrilled to present The Word-Shimmering Sea: Diego Velázquez / Enrique Martínez Celaya, an exhibition of works by contemporary Cuban-born artist Enrique Martínez Celaya, in dialogue with Diego Velázquez’s Portrait of a Little Girl (ca. 1638–42). The exhibit is curated by Martínez Celaya and Hispanic Society Director and CEO Guillaume Kientz and will open in the museum’s Main Court from April 18-July 7, 2024. The exhibition is the first of a new, recurring series at the Hispanic Society titled “A Collection in Question”, which engages in meaningful dialogues with one or more artists whose works resonates with the Hispanic Society’s collection and mission.
