Las Calles Hablan – the street art exhibit
Mutuo Centro de Arte
Mapping Barcelona Public Art (MBPA) kickstarts the autumn with their first exhibit Las Calles Hablan (The streets speak). Created by Katrine Knauer, this exhibition is a collection of images of street art throughout Barcelona city to help redefine the importance of graffiti. Many tend to have an immediate reaction when it comes to street art, they either love it, hate it or perhaps simply don’t understand it.
The exhibition is focused on the evolution of the street art in the city since the end of Franco’s dictatorship. It was specifically after his death that the city evolved into a bohemian and cultured place with those based in it reclaiming themselves. The form of expressions took various forms and graffiti was most definitely a significant one, flourished across walls, store fronts, underground, walls of railway lines etc.
Artists participating include Kafre, Debens, Kenor, Alice, Btoy, Ogoch, pEZ, tom14, Sm172, Gola.
