The Spanish Cultural Center, better known as la Casa del Soldado, in Casco Antiguo, is in the final weeks of its latest art exhibition, “Progreso (un borrador),” a group showing of the Panamanian artists that participated in the ninth edition of the Visual Arts Biennale of the Central American Isthmus (BAVIC) which took place in August in Guatemala.

The artists all share points in common: each expresses the ways that current political situations influence economic trends, and how the results show up across society and the urban landscape in often-unbalanced ways.

The exhibit was commissioned by the FUNDAHRTE foundation, working with curators, Luisa Fuentes and RamonZafrani.

The artist roster comprises Darien Montañez, Ela Spalding, Ismael Ortiz, Pilar Moreno and Sofia Verzboloviskis.

The show will remain open to the public free of charge until Friday, January 10.
