The ATLÁNTICA project, heterogeneous if possible -due to the difficulty of bringing together the languages and concepts so divergent from the many artists, painters, sculptors and architects who participated in its exhibitions- also came to affirm or vindicate the differentiating signs of an art that, like the Galician, it had a complex prior history of being linked to a fiercely nationalist conscience. However, in the face of continuity, lacking self-criticism, of easy local flattery and reiterated themes, reminiscent of the Arcadian and costumbrist land, the essential philosophy of Atlanticism was a forceful response, revealing the inescapable will to embed itself in the Europe that was imposing its aesthetic conscience on the world, as well as an urgent recovery of its own mythologies.
