June 28, 2013

The MULAFEST goes all out in presenting the start of the summer season with a festival dedicated to this intangible that is so attractive and recurring that it evades definitions: lifestyle. Live music, tattoo artists, urban sports, dance, theatre. From today until June 30th at this non-place on the outskirts of Madrid in which knots of the road intersect with glossy surfaces and new faces parade every day: IFEMA. Urban art is also the protagonist: art to be trod upon, to call attention to the unknown surfaces, and also to go unnoticed. The Gunter Gallery artists have come to the meeting in a gang: BoaMistura, Ricardo Cavolo, Santiago Morilla, Littleisdrawing, Iván Solbes, and Aitor Saraiba printed a little bit of encouragement in the aseptic space that persists to exist on the fairgrounds.

Urban interventions have the power to attract our attention and stop the rhythm of busy life on the streets. Art in public spaces remains exposed over time like no other, vulnerable and powerful. How infinitely vast, how ridiculously small. The intervention that makes me look and that I discover by chance, that makes me doubt what I see. The collective of urban artists BoaMistura is in charge of reminding us that art can also be trod upon and puts colored carpet in the second edition of the Urban Lifestyle Festival in Madrid, with a permanent intervention in one of the never ending walks around the exterior of the enclosure. Art was a party.


THE BOOKSELLER RECOMMENDS… 'BARCELONA GRAFFITI'
