Madrid’s Urban Digital Arts Festival
4-->31 May, 2023
In 2023 we celebrate the fourth edition of MMMAD, Madrid’s Urban Digital Arts Festival, transforming the city into the international capital of digital art and new media during the month of May. In this new edition we will focus on the diverse community of creators and audiences, generating a space for meeting, exchange of ideas and celebration around the most avant-garde artistic practices.
We will continue to claim the role of the public space as a cultural space, extending our collaboration with the urban screens of Madrid; we will delve deeper into some of the most relevant issues in the sector, creating spaces for collective thinking around digital practices; we will expand international collaborations by working with strategic agents from different countries; we will collaborate with some independent spaces that build the cultural fabric of the city and with the intention of democratising access to culture and reaching out to diverse audiences, all the exhibitions and activities of this edition will be free of charge.
In the coming weeks we will be announcing the full programme that will build
the fourth edition of MMMAD Madrid’s Urban Digital Arts Festival, a project founded and directed by Aida Salán, Cristóbal Baños and Diego Iglesias.
"My Friends Come From The Clouds"
MMMAD 2023 × Bora
Each year we curate the image of the festival as a new digital artwork, collaborating with an artist from the previous edition. On this occasion the selected artist has been BORA, alter-ego of French artist Pauline Canavesio, whose work deals with themes such as identity and intimacy in the physical-digital context.
Celestial Castle Bodies, dancefloor full of morphing clouds. Our bodies transformed into sentient castles, vibrant architectures of beings. A refuge for our dreams, echoing our impermanence. Castles are made of flesh.
« My Friends Come From The Clouds » is a piece investing imaginative landscapes as a way to navigate our reality with tenderness, an attempt on deconstruction and acceptance. It invites us to come as we are, commune and dance with our narratives.
