New images today from street artist/fine artist Borondo of his new exhibition in Bologna, “Settimo Giorno.”
In the historic and revered gallery venue at the Former Church of San Mattia, he creates eleven new works incorporating a complex video process unique to the artist. To generate narratives between painting and sculpture, he creates bas-reliefs and employs a layering of nets in a monochromatic scheme.
“In order to think about Genesis, it is necessary, in some way, to also think about its opposite. Thus, the energy of creation and the energy of destruction merge on the Seventh Day, giving life to an intermediary space that visitors will be able to see and walk through”.

“Urvanity seeks to explore and thus imagine possible future scenarios for this New Contemporary Art,” they say boldly in the manifesto for this art fair/cultural platform in Madrid. A thrilling nexus is created here in this college campus of architecture where art from the streets is evolving in such ways that it is invited to come in from the street.
Whatever your perspective is on this evolution, we encourage the conversation – which usually contains elements of tribalism (various), resistance, acceptance, even euphoria. During breaks from hosting the BSA Talks this weekend we are also skipping and swerving through the crowds to look at the art that galleries have on offer.
Here we offer a very quick sample of some items that have caught our eye, looked fresh, or were indicative of larger movements in the so-called “scene”. And we use the word “scene” very loosely, because there is really not such thing as a homogeneous scene, only a constellation of them which are intersecting, coalescing, and redefining themselves. Some pieces are remarkable.
Here is the past, existing side by side with the future.
