On 1-Feb-2014
Ús Barcelona

Free of charge.
Antics Encants Vells
Glories, Barcelona


Ús is a project that rescues the usability potential of urban spaces which have lost their social function on account of developmental changes. Art is a natural dynamiser of public space and has the potential of giving life and dignity to empty spaces.

All the activities in the event are designed to bring urban art closer to people, therefore employing its full transformative potential. At the same time, artists and audience will be brought to a common ground, an opportunity for direct experience and enriching exchange.

Horizontes deals with great formal simplicity where space and colour are the protagonists. Behind every picture, there is much more to it than what meets the eye – in each canvas there are underlying existential questions regarding origin, void, infinity, the beginning and the end.
