The reception is the first of the events organized around the Frontiers of Knowledge Awards ceremony, which since the 11th edition – in 2019 – has been sited in Bilbao.
The awards will be presented on Thursday 16th in the Euskalduna Conference Centre. The evening before, on Wednesday 15th, a gala concert in honor of awardees will be held in the same venue, performed by the Basque National Orchestra under conductor Roberto Treviño and featuring violinist Renaud Capúcon.
For decades now, the BBVA Group and its Foundation have participated in and interacted with the knowledge and cultural ecosystem of the Basque Country, through recurrent partnerships with some of its leading institutions. In particular, the Foundation has been a Strategic Trustee from the outset of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, with which it regularly co-organizes major exhibitions, including this year alone the shows Women in Abstraction and From Fauvism to Surrealism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris.
