ART AT MADBLUE: ENERGY THAT TRANSFORMS SOCIETY
MadBlue is committed to art as a transformative element, convinced that it is from the creativity, sensitivity and questioning that characterizes artists that we can design the change to a better world. Exhibitions and art installations work as emergency calls towards more responsible and caring behaviors with the environment and social values.
MADBLUE ART 2022 PROGRAMME
ART INSTALLATIONS AND EXHIBITIONS
You will be able to produce rain while walking inside it thanks to its rolling ring of more than 5 metres. Rainmakers poetically points out the human longing to have enough power to manage the weather as we wish.
REFUGE AND THREATS
Refugio brings us closer to the idea of solitude and the individualism of our societies. Umbrales proposes portals with plates of sunlight that take us into the world of science fiction to find answers to the incongruity of the world we inhabit.
“RETURNING THE FIRE”
Nowadays, the combustion phenomenon that we provoke in our search for energy is endangering our planet. It is time to “return fire” and make a commitment to other energy sources that will lead us to a new, more respectful and less predatory relationship with the Earth and the Oceans.
