POP UP Gallery in La Boca

A couple of years ago the artist Poeta lead a remarkable art project. For a single weekend a dilapidated house in Las Canitas was transformed into a pop-up gallery, featuring murals, installations and artwork from a selection of urban artists.

This year Poeta has found a new location for the project – a beautiful period building in a secluded part of La Boca. For the past few days a host of artists have been working on the exterior and interior walls, creating murals, installations and gallery space for artwork and video works.

The opening event took place last Friday – giving visitors a chance to get to know the space, view some of the works in progress and a selection of gallery artwork on display.

Tonight (Wednesday, March 17th) is main event – the closing party, and the first and possibly only opportunity to see the completed installations and murals.

This will be one of the most impressive urban art events of the year. Do not miss!

"White Walls Say Nothing" production update

We have just finished the third week of filming our documentary “White Walls Say Nothing”.

We’ve travelled the length and breadth of the city, capturing the faded opulence and the urban sprawl, and we’ve met with political activists, experimental art collectives, graffiti writers and muralists.

It has been an intense and exhilarating experience, and we’re really happy with how the production is developing.

Here are a few stills from the last few weeks. If you’d like to follow the progress of the shoot we upload images to our tumblr at the end of each day of filming.
