High Rise

 

 

High Rise is a plastic response to the new museum idea. This sample, as the materials used to carry out the sculpture are ductile and light. The location is located in the entrance hall and the new exhibition space of three floors of open height in the heart of the Center. The composition of the sculpture has been reduced to the use of basic geometric bodies. The form only exists in a particular state or thanks to the action performed with the materials of the same.

Inspired by membrane architecture, a technique from the late 1960s, is a synonym for variable autonomy, isolation and the need for integration converge at the same point. The Prego piece, made up of different pieces, forms a set of accumulation. Tetrahedrons, made of rigid cardboard, investigate the articulation of the volumes, thus applying a series of joint possibilities that give the piece a certain changing air.

The curious thing about this staging is that it allows the viewer to enter the piece and interact with it, creating an affective bond. The sum of inflatable elements, in different plants emphasizes the modular character of this one and it gets that air crosses the interior. You can enjoy this exhibition in the Ca2M (Móstoles) until February 26.

Street art is the expression of art in public spaces either in the form of murals in restored buildings; graffiti; street painting or curated artistic actions. What are the backstories of each artist? What are the social issues affecting our city? This social, cultural and educational project was born in 2016 to answer these questions and show the message hidden by the works of art of so many national and international artists who have painted the Embajadores neighbourhood. It became the first daily street art tour in Madrid.

Cooltourspain will show you the Spanish capital in an alternative way and its guides will share their knowledge about the best street art in the Lavapiés and Malasaña areas. In the same way, its Foundation collaborates with non-profit projects and local associations so that people at risk of social exclusion can learn the techniques used by Madrid graffiti artists. The tour lasts two hours and begins at the Valle Inclán Theater Entrance.
