Welcome back Outdoor Festival
The city of Rome takes on the colors of street art and becomes a meeting place through "Outdoor Festival." At its seventh edition, the Festival is a reference point for the urban art followers. From October 1 to 31, at the former Guido Reni barracks, the works of internationally renowned artists, from Velasco and Anunzibai, Mobstr and Vlady, Tellas and Joys will be exhibited. Art, music, cinema enliven the Festival giving rise to an ambitious project, which wants to invite all those who live in the cities to think, observe and feel part of the urban transformation.
A trip to learn about street art
OutDoor Off, a calendar of events that brings the Festival beyond the barracks, will take off with a wide program of cultural content contaminating the city, from the center to the suburbs. This 2016 edition will have 3 checkpoints scattered throughout the city: Palazzo Velli, exhibition space in the charming Trastevere district, seat of two exhibitions: the first will star Ozmo, one of the greatest Italian artists of the contemporary art scene, and Busco. The second stage of Outdoor Off will be in the Pigneto area. Inside Varco, a regenerated former factory promoter of art, music and food related events, will host two interesting initiatives: FRIGIDAIRE, an exhibition on the historic Italian art and comics magazine directed by Vincenzo Sparagna and an exclusive presentation the famous street artist Basquait by his official photographer Lee Jaffe. Last but not least, Outdoor Festival will move to the neighborhood of Tor Bella Monaca, within its Theater that will be animated with a full program of performances with the participation of many Italian and international artists.
Not only murals
This year is also devoted to technological innovation: all the works created during the Outdoor Festival editions have been catalogued thanks to the partnership with the Google Cultural Institute. The Outdoor Project has been implemented as an online platform that shows all the works and artistic interventions that have been made since 2010. The students can live the experience to peer between the rooms and the works of over 30 artists hosted in the previous editions of the Outdoor Festival, using Google Cardboard.
