In conjunction with American art in the Thyssen Collection, which pays tribute to Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza by bringing together his collection of American art and reinterpreting it with a fresh gaze, a series of lectures will analyse issues present in the works on display.

The exhibition is the result of a research project undertaken with the support of Terra Foundation for American Art which has analysed this exceptional group of works - unique in the context of Europe - from the viewpoint of history, politics, science, the environment, material culture and urban life while also aiming at a deeper understanding of the complexities of American art and culture.

The series consists of six lectures given by members of the museum's conservation team, including Guillermo Solana, artistic director, and the two curators of the exhibition: Paloma Alarcó, head of the Department of Modern Painting, and Alba Campo Rosillo, Terra Fellow of American Art and director of the series.
