Exposición Origami

 

Visitors travelling to Madrid before 3 February will have the chance to enhance their stay by going to the Origami Exhibition, which will be on display at the Cerralbo Museum. We encourage you to come and learn all there is to know about this ancient Oriental art which consists in folding paper without using any tools such as glue or scissors. This beautiful technique produces all kinds of shapes and forms that are true paper sculptures.

This temporary exhibition is open to the public free of charge and provides the perfect summary of the history and evolution of origami in Eastern and Western culture, which is essentially a type of paper folding with its very own rules and concepts.

We highly recommend you take a look around the museum, located at number 17 on Calle Ventura Rodríguez, to discover all the different works of art they have on display there. The initiative is driven by Cerralbo in collaboration with the Origami Museum School of Zaragoza (EMOZ).

A select sample to see in Madrid

The Origami Exhibition is one of several activities organised to celebrate the 150th anniversary of signing the Friendship, Trade and Navigation Treaty between Spain and Japan in 1868 to govern the diplomatic relations between both countries.

In case you still had questions, here are the Museum’s opening times: from Tuesday to Saturday, from 9.30 am to 3 pm, Thursdays from 5 pm to 8 pm, and Sundays and bank holidays from 10 am to 3 pm.

Don’t forget to write this trip in your Madrid tour diary – you may not get another opportunity to see such a magnificent array of folding techniques, styles, artists and schools that have emerged between the 20th century and the present day.
