The "Urban Memories" of Gaeta and Formia
A virtual art gallery that becomes a real place; a dream that after five years of hard work becomes reality. This happens in Gaeta, where a few days ago Place-Urban Street Art Gallery opened: a new exhibition space dedicated to art and its urban languages. The initiative is part of the project Urbane memories, connecting different forms of urban creativity with the surrounding area since 2011.
The intervention of Sea creative in Formia
While in Gaeta opens a new urban art exhibition center, Urban Memories has already made its first 2016 intervention of urban regeneration in the town of Formia, where artist Sea Creative made his intervention giving new life to the bridge in via Madonna di Ponza, a forgotten abandoned place. In his mural speechless characters came to life, caught in the astonished expression and wrapped in a surreal scene. It is almost the same expression of those admiring the revival of these abandoned places now reborn thanks to new contemporary art languages.
Street Art Place-Urban Gallery, the creativity arrives in South-Latium
As to Gaeta, in the square Traniello, to understand what is happening in the Street Art Place-Urban Gallery: the exhibition Welcome will open until April 17 to inaugurate the location. The works of Isaac Cordal will be exhibited and presented for the first time in Italy. The Spanish artist 'welcomes' visitors with his resin statues, that invite the audience to reflect on the relationship between man and modern society. Humanity progressed in a space too exploited or sometimes entirely abandoned even for our phobias, economic and political battles. But what will bring us all this? And most importantly, what will we leave to future generations?
The many faces of the Urban Festival
Welcome is only the beginning of the V edition of the Urban Festival organized by Urbane Memories, which will involve international artists in a set of events around the region until next October. Thirty-five creatives as David Oliveira, ECB, Deih, Louis Masai (to name a few) will be involved in interventions in Ventotene, Gaeta, Formia, Fondi, Cassino, Valmontone, Terracina. All witnesses of the same message: create, indeed evoke a '' memory from the past can serve as a starting point for new creative and innovative paths.
