* "Arte Peatonal III (Pedestrian Art III)Temporary collective exhibition under the open sky.
After the success of the calls from previous years, the 'Peatonal Art' initiative returns to our streets in its third edition in September, a unique and different activity that invites us to look at and explore our city from other perspectives, through a different perspective . On this occasion, sixteen other creators will show their works in unusual places, gaining open spaces for people such as shop windows, which, on this occasion, will have the interesting and ephemeral function of an art gallery close to everyone, at street level. We once again have the sponsorship of the Government of Cantabria and the collaboration of the Santander City Council.
The exhibition will bring together works by 16 established creators in different techniques and disciplines, all in full view of the pedestrian. The intention is to create an itinerary through the center of the city of Santander to enjoy the temporary exhibition, bringing art to the street. The collective will take place throughout September 2020. The inauguration will be held on Friday the 11th at 5:30 p.m. starting at Castelar street to start the tour following the 18 participating establishments and consolidating the appointment in the cultural calendar of Santander and Cantabria.
The project aims to attract the public by inviting them to enjoy walking through an open and accessible exhibition space that favors small businesses and dialogue with artists at the same time demonstrating the importance of art and how it positively impacts the life of the city. temporarily transforms, generating a feeling of identity and opening a channel between fashion, commerce and art.
The disciplines today have been broken and fashion shares spaces with art, art looks at fashion as a somewhat superficial phenomenon but fashion and art can be related and, from time to time, rub against each other. One of the windows will host a performance with video projection and dance, alluding to the theme of isolation, loneliness and routine ... as a vital experience during confinement."
