The Pedro Aunión tent will be the setting for the artistic proposal of Mad Cool Festival, an area in which visitors can have a completely immersive artistic experience. See, observe and create with the artists is the goal of Mad Cool Art 2019, an action born under an attractive leit motive: “A Mad Cool Art – you come to see art, but also to make art”.

Curated by Judith Sansó, coordinator of AVAM, the Association of Visual Artists of Madrid and director of EXTENSION AVAM in Matadero Madrid, and with the participation of ExitfineArt and Linda Santaguida in the selection of creators, Mad Cool Art will have a parallel development to the course of the Festival. Of course, without forgetting the great artistic umbrella that shelters it: music. For that reason, a great David Bowie will preside over the space and, of course, DJ Milford will take care of setting the space when not, of imposing the rhythm of the plastic creations.

In Carpa Aunión, the visitor will experience the street art experience with top-level graffiti artists, see how a muralist works in real time, day by day, seeing how his work takes form and body, different participatory performances will be carried out with the public or, even, the skin of the spectator – who so wishes – may become the canvas of a painter. And since art is not at odds with the protection of the planet and its bio-sustainability, the plastic waste will be transformed thanks to a colossal sculpture composed of plastic bottles.
