Mapping Art Valladolid
BY MARTA ÁLVAREZ GUILLÉN
@ VOL 3
ON OCT 31, 2013
#MappingArt Valladolid es un proyecto creado y diseñado por Marta Álvarez, Laura López, María Nieto, Ada Sánchezy Rodrigo Simón que que repiensa el mapa de la ciudad, advirtiendo de la falsedad de estas herramientas y de la necesidad de repensarlas y rescribirlas no ya como descripciones de lugar sino como descripciones psicosociales y afectivas, que den mejor cuenta de la realidad que trata de representarse.
Su interés es triple: localizar y visibilizar cada uno de los nodos que tejen la red cartográfica vallisoletana en torno al arte contemporáneo; hacer ver la necesidad de una mayor formación en torno arte contemporáneo y mostrar la precariedad real oculta tras el aparente opulento mundo del arte.
