Through photography, drawing, collage, sculpture, painting… the artists show us their perception and interpretation of the peripheries. Fernando Barrios Benavides is characterized by an abstraction with a narrative through sculptures and a sometimes collage painting that combines different materials, techniques and materials, Raul Bravo makes drawings and quick notes in his urban drifts, collages as an artist’s book and Yuri Pol, through photography, brings us social moments, human landscapes and empty territories, but also poetic images of greater abstraction.

ART U READY presents Saint Blaise, an exhibition curated by Asun Rodríguez Montejano with urbanism as its focus, from the point of view of a group of transversal artists, very committed to architecture and the city.

This first exhibition explores the first urban peripheries of the big cities (1950s, 1960s and 1970s), innovative and experimental spaces at the time at the urban and residential level, which gave shelter to huge contingents of people in search of better job prospects and quality of life. Framed in processes of deterioration and inefficiency practically generalized, they represent the opportunity to carry out a truly transforming action of the urban and social space, from the experimentation of new techniques and the exercise of alliances, claiming a return to thought and innovation in the collective re-construction of the city.
