Talk: Women’s Signatures

09/14/2017 | Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias (C / Santa Ana, 1, Oviedo)

Communicating and visualizing the presence of graffiti writers allows us to delve into themes of inclusive urbanism, into the uses and readings of spaces from a gender perspective.

It means working to break stereotypes traditionally associated with the phenomenon of graffiti that are reinforced across the range of mainstream media and that help to build a biased image in the public mind.

We also talk about the cultural and social background of graffiti, and address current national and international proposals that advocate greater visibility for female writers, driven by the movement itself.

Roundtable: Art, City and Gender

09/14/2017 | Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias (C / Santa Ana, 1, Oviedo)

Urban Art has as its framework of action the public realm. However, this is space that is not neutral, that is politicised and full of cultural connotations. Gender influences how we build, inhabit and create in the city. For this reason, we propose to create a space to debate and reflect on concepts such as public space, gender, political territory, urban guerrillas, graffiti …

Leopoldo Alas Clarín Competition

The walls narrate the history of their cities and build the symbolic identity of their inhabitants. Hence the importance of restoring pieces made in Oviedo during the muralist movement of the 1980s.

The City Council of Oviedo, through the Municipal Culture Foundation, proposed the realisation of a new mural to replace the one made by Florentino Flórez, since it was in a bad state of deterioration. Florentino Flórez himself advocated a new intervention rather than restoration.

Therefore, a competition was held to develop a new mural on the theme Leopoldo Alas Clarín. In the contest 70 candidacies of 21 different nationalities took part. A jury awarded the commision to Twee Muizen, and the new mural is going to be painted in 2018.

Open comissions

3 walls were made available in an open call for proposals:
