PAREES FEST 2021 V EDITION OVIEDO MURAL INTERVENTION FESTIVAL (ASTURIAS, SPAIN). SEPTEMBER 13-19
The festival Parees Fest, which was confirmed in just four editions as a national and international benchmark of urban art and muralism, will bring together four artists this year from Monday, September 13 to Sunday, 19, betting once again on proximity, the work with the community and the importance of the context and local history, as well as the parity in terms of the selection of artists. One of the murals will be participatory.
Organized by the Municipal Foundation of Culture of Oviedo, Parees Fest will add these new murals to the more than 25 made in previous years, which have changed the landscape of the council with works by renowned artists.
The festival was maintained in 2020 despite the difficult situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, which also on this occasion will force the program to be adjusted to the necessary health protocols.
Unlike other mural festivals, Parees involves the neighbors through participatory processes, coordinated by the collective Raposu Roxu, and in which associations and experts in the different themes of the interventions work in synergy with the artists.
For this edition Parees Fest invited:
ALBA FABRE SACRISTÁN (BARCELONA, SPAIN)
EMILY ELDRIDGE (UNITED STATES)
FONI ARDAO (GIJÓN, SPAIN)
LUOGO COMUNE (BOLOGNA, ITALY)
