XXI Century Basques - XXI Mendeko Euskaldunak

This photographic exhibition in the Gallery in Oxford House, is by 3 young Basque photographers and about their project, called 'XXI. Mendeko Euskaldunak' / 'XXI Century Basques' (http://www.vascossiglo21.com) . It is about Basque traditions and customs and the influence of the recent technological advances on the identity of the Basque people.

There will also be an exhibition in the same Oxford House gallery of a good number of Basque traditional dresses, brought to you straight from the Basque Country by these photographers. This exhibition will run along the photographic exhibition and for the same period of time.

On Saturday, December 11th, we are organising its opening. We would like to invite you all to come and join us. The event will start at 1 p.m and it will hook up later with the the Olentzero 2010 lunch - bazkaria. The photographers will be there and they would like to meet and introduce their work to everyone, so please do try to come and join us there. There will be some light snacks and drinks. It is free and we will be playing a video in the gallery the photographers have produced themselves, also about Basque traditions and customs (gastronomy, sports, culture, etc).

The exhibition will run from Tuesday 7th till early or mid January 2011 (we will give you the exact date when we know it). Oxford House will be closed for the Christmas period from Thursday 23rd till Tuesday January 4th. Please keep that in mind so you don't miss out.

Other than that, you can come any day to Oxford House to check it out. It is open every week day from 9.00 a.m till 9.30 p.m and Saturdays from 9.00 a.m till 1.50 p.m. Sundays is normally closed unless there is an event happening in Oxford House. If you want to check whether Oxford House is open on a particular Sunday in December, or Saturday till later, ring 02077399001 (Oxford House's reception) and they will be able to tell you.
