Cagliari Urbanfest is back with its second edition

Cagliari Urbanfest ‐ Generazioni Metropolitane is returning to Sant’Elia neighborhood for a second edition full of events. Starting on October the 30th, the festival second edition will involve both the periphery and the city center in the name of art and sustainability. Street art murals, participatory art interventions, workshops, art exhibits, meetings and more events will take place in the neighborhoods of Sant’Elia, San Michele, Stampace and Marina.

Sant’Elia neighborhood will come alive with impressive urban art once again as UrbanKofa, Rosaria Straffalaci and Roberta Congiu will create new artworks actively involving people and local community. UrbanKofa will paint an electrical cabin, close to last year’s mural by Carol Rollo at Scuola Primaria Nanny Loy. UrbanKofa mural will be part of “Cabine d’Autore”, urban regeneration, sustainability and proximity to communities project promoted by E-Distribuzione. Rosaria Straffalaci will realize a multi-material mural on the wall of Confraternita di Misericordia, located near the Parco degli Anelli. Roberta Congiu will create a participatory art intervention using photography.

The Castle of San Michele will host “Bucolica Urbana”, a group exhibition with works by Pietrina Atzori, Gianni Casagrande, Roberto Chessa, Ciredz, Michele Mereu, Marco Rea and Laura Saddi. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Orientare.

The Temporary Storing, an art gallery in Stampace’s quarter owned by Fondazione per l’arte Bartoli-Felter, will hold “Biocene”, a duo exhibition by Matteo Ambu and Freom.

Spazio e Movimento, an independent art space placed in the heart of Marina district, will host “Entreterras”, a duo exhibition of photography by brazilian artists Mayara Scudeler and Catia Simões realized in collaboration with Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger |KBH.G .

Cagliari Urbanfest second edition will close with two days of meetings which will be held in Sant’Elia district and at the Castle of San Michele.

Cagliari Urbanfest, the first Street art and visual arts festival in Cagliari created by Asteras with the curatorship of Ivana Salis and Barbara Catte, is focused on the idea of sustainability, expressed in environmental and social terms, on the city as a space of relationships, between people and between people and places they inhabit.

“Cagliari Urbanfest – Asteras president Ivana Salis explained – continues in its intent to contribute, through the communicative power of urban art, to creating new perspectives, and to trigger a change in the relationship between people and places. We will be in Sant’Elia again this year and we will involve people of all ages in the creation of urban art interventions. Active participation in the regeneration of urban areas not only makes those places more livable, but is also an incentive to take care of them over time”.

Geiger |KBH.G, Spazio e Movimento, LILA Cagliari, Parrocchia Sant’Elia and Confraternita di Misericordia di Cagliari-Sant’Elia.
