BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival’s very first pop-up edition is taking place at Morelia Michoacán, Mexico for the “Día de los Muertos”. The Ibizan festival which recently completed its 12th consecutive year this summer is now traveling to the sacred celebration full of colors that unites the living and the world beyond.
International artists such as the likes of Spaik (MX), Said Dokins (MX), AMADAMA (EU) and more will gather during this national fiesta for this book breaking pop-up festival that will marry tradition, colors and street art.
Michoacán is the area in Mexico where the UNESCO inscribed intangible cultural heritage, “Día de los Muertos” is said to originate. Vibrant colored skulls, Aztec marigolds and candles welcome the departed as living memories during this time of year. BLOOP marked artworks and installations will be exhibited perfectly in line with the warm and lively colored Día de los Muertos scenery, in dialogue with the local people and the place creating an unprecedented transcendental synergy.
Despite the challenges and setbacks due to the two years of pandemic and the ongoing international conflict at Europe’s doorsteps, the independent initiative doesn’t stop to spread the message: “ART IS FOR EVERYBODY”.
BLOOP International Proactive Festival, the independent avant-garde project by Biokip Labs was initially renowned for its OpenAir.Gallery (a project that started back in 2011 that aimed to change the face of Ibiza island through outdoor murals and installations accessible to everybody all year round). A unique non-insular event dedicated not only to art enthusiasts but especially to the ordinary and general public who have no interest in art. Unlike any other art event, the BLOOP exhibits proactive art that seeks to stimulate and sensitise spectators “to think” proactively, the foundation of the festival. The very reason it continues to harness the power of art to communicate a message by showcasing inclusive and comprehensible art in all forms for everybody. Inclusive proactive street art not only shouts ideas and comprehensible aesthetics that are based on creativity and imagination, but also mesmerizes the spectators with innovating messages and encourages them to “question” certain aspects in society that are closely related to their daily lives.
