MAS Context and Clear Channel have signed an agreement to exhibit Nocturnal Landscapes on Clear Channel’s digital displays in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and Seville until the end of April 2021. This exhibition launches Clear Channel’s “Museo en la Calle” initiative with the goal of bringing art and culture to city streets.
The exhibition, curated by architect Iker Gil and that features work by architects Mar Santamaria and Pablo Martínez of the Barcelona-based firm 300.000 Km/s and Minneapolis-based sociologist and photographer David Schalliol, is already on display on the Clear Channel digital displays.
This exhibition focuses on five global cities: Barcelona, Chicago, Las Vegas, Tokyo, and Vancouver. Their urban rhythms are presented here through a series of cartographies and photographs. The exhibition takes the idea that nighttime is a unique territory to the streets of these Spanish cities.
This exhibition is part of the larger MAS Context initiative that explores nocturnal landscapes of global metropolises. The initiative started in 2019 and was first exhibited at the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago as a partner program of the Chicago Architecture Biennial. Since then, the project has continued through public lectures, interviews, and publications.
