Aproximately every three other months the art galleries present in Calle Doctor Fourquet change their exhibitions and consequently count with new artists who sell their artwork on an indoors space. We created the first chapter of Madrid art guide featuring the paintings available over Lavapiés area, one of the most multicultural neighborhoods in Madrid’s citycenter. Haven’t you walked over it yet? Let’s see what you will observe!

Whether contemporary or classic, the art is present in this street. Not only you will find it in galleries, but also at public spots such as Esto es una Plaza, our favourite urban garden in Madrid full of graffiti and street art.
The first gallery featured in our Madrid art guide is Espacio Minimo, an artsy space with more than 25 years of history, directed by José Martínez Calvo & Luis Valverde Espejo. The current exhibition features the work of Alicia Mihai Gazcue, a mythical visual artist born in Uruguay who chose some of her creations from 1971 to 2016. She now lives in Bucharest, Romania and works hand to hand with Liliana Porter and Ana Tiscornia. Mrs. Mihai talks about identity reaffirmation related to a personal poetic.

The next art gallery we visited was Galeria Silvestre. El Bautizo Monstruo is the exhibition curated by Almudena Fernández Ortega, an artist from Sevilla, Spain who brings us an event which took place in 1936. It was under Franco’s dictatorship when the control of La Nava, a village in Huelva occurred. Supernatural and overwordly existence as seen in the Spanish history.
Chosen as our favourite pick from this Madrid art guide, we will find Galeria MPA. It was the faccade of the building which really took our attention! Fake brown bricks decorate the exterior part of the gallery. During your visit at the interior’s part, you will observe how Juan Uslé painted with an exquisite technique over diferent canvas sizes. ‘Between time and rhytm’ is the title of his exhibition which was created between Saro (Santander) and New York.
