CULTURE

AUGE OF MEXICO GROWTH AND COMPETITIVE LEADERSHIP

ALVARO CUEVAS

CREATING AN ART INDUSTRY IN MEXICO Galerías Urbanas is a project of the foundation “Todos Dejamos Huella” (we all leave a footprint). Its main director, plastic artist Alvaro Cuevas wants to create movement in the main concepts of art, education, health, tourism, identity and economy, resulting in a social urban network that bets for a mutual understanding. Currently, the foundation has a permanent sculpture gallery in Guadalajara and it recently opened one more in Zapopan. Moreover, different foundations, markets and streets with murals have been intervened.

Sculptures of great dimensions in the shape of origami figures that serve as canvas, are placed in specific points of the urban landscape with the goal of being painted by a guest artist or by the people, so they can be contemplated and lived by the people that walk by their locations. In this way, art transmutes violence in a visual communication made by and for humans. It addresses to the awareness of people’s senses and influences in the way the people relate to one another.

In order for these actions to be made, the foundation forms alliances with the private sector and searches for “Culturally Responsible Companies” that dedicate their efforts to art, education and health. The invite is open to any company that would like to get involved through mechanisms of sponsorship and barter, to intervene, restore and beautify their infrastructure spaces.
