The street as a place of sharing and innovation, the principal laboratory for artists, architects and creatives.

The time is right to back to the streets: urban life should coincide with public life and the street is the place where all this happens. Works of art, architectural projects, photographs, performances, site-specific interventions and videos welcome visitors to a sequence of galleries that form a street dozens of metres long.

Large installations accompany the visitor in an exploration of a street that is frequently concealed in which posters are presented as art accessible to the general public and hidden spaces gain a voice. The street is analysed as a continuously mutating manifesto of contemporary life, an element of connection but also of rupture, the setting for everyday experiences such as street festivals, improvised cinema or street food.
