"100 Years of Flamenco in New York"

March 12, 2013-August 3, 2013


Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is partnering with the NY Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center on a five-month exhibition, 100 Years of Flamenco in New York.  This exhibit will focus on the contributions of great Flamenco artists and their momentous performances that have taken place in New York City as early as the 1840s while celebrating Flamenco Vivo’s 30-year history.

Flamenco Vivo, Ninotchka Bennahum and K. Meira Goldberg are curating the exhibit, undertaking the research into Flamenco’s earliest days, and providing documents, photographs and objects from Carmen Amaya to José Greco. The exhibit also includes rare original recordings from 1934 of songs and castanet playing by Federico Garcia Lorca with La Argentina.

"There is a great story here to tell and a wonderful history to celebrate" says Jacquelyn Davis, the Executive Director of the Lincoln Center Library
