Green Revolution

The artists brought together for this show reveal an imagery that has been inspired by the current mutations in our environment.

Notes on the LOOP video art fair

LOOP art fair understands the importance of the comfort factor for video art lovers. The fair took place inside the snug rooms of a 4 stars hotel right in the center of Barcelona during 3 afternoons.

So here we were all cosying into armchairs, spreading over beds, taking notes in the dark and chatting in the corridors of the hotel continue
