MURO_LX FESTIVAL


MURO_LX is the Lisbon Urban Art Festival, developed by the Urban Art Gallery (GAU), the core of the Department of Cultural Heritage, integrated in the Municipal Directorate of Culture of the Lisbon City Council.


MURO_LX Festival was created in 2016 with the main purpose to promote Urban Art in Lisbon, through creation and production of new works in public space, promoting its authors, national and foreign.


With each edition, MURO_LX intervenes in a single parish of the city, providing the discovery of a new territory through art, revealing its material and intangible heritage, in close cooperation with artists and also with communities, institutions and local agents.


Over the course of 4 editions, MURO_LX exibited more than two hundred urban artists, national and foreign, produced about one hundred and fifty new pieces of urban art and organized a very diverse set of cultural, social and educational initiatives, which aim to develop knowledge and stimulate the creation of new artistic perspectives on the city.


Lisbon is nowadays recognized as a reference in the international circuits of Urban Art, and MURO_LX is one of the projects that most contributes to this success.

ARTISTIC INTERVENTIONS, EXHIBITIONS, GUIDED TOURS, WORKSHOP


Lisbon is once again the stage of Muro, Urban Art Festival. In this 4th edition, urban art occupies Parque das Nações, the easternmost part of Lisbon city, which was recreated and conquered a new centrality from the cultural and urban project of Expo'98.


Urban culture, multiculturalism and sustainability are the themes that inspire more than 30 artists to intervene in a public space, under the motto of the Wall that (re)unite us. 

Consecrated and emerging, individually or collectively, portuguese and foreign, residents and urban nomads, for ten days, all are on the street, and the public can follow the creation of new artistic interventions in Lisbon, considered international reference in the context of urban art.


In an organic way, this Wall unfolds in twenty-five large-scale interventions, two exhibitions, two installations and a workshop, distributed throughout the territory, as a challenge to the multiplication of our gaze on the city, on communities, and on ourselves as Humanity.


The meeting point, Gare do Oriente, is also a gateway to MURO_LX_2021. From there, three programmatic nucleus radiate: Sustainability in the surrounding area of Gare do Oriente and Avenida de Pádua, Urban Culture in Parque Tejo and Multiculturalism in Casal dos Machados.


Through a set of interventions, exhibitions and installations, the artists of the Sustainability core, present proposals to the city, which are also visions and statements about the practices and experiences nowadays. Here we find universal themes, with real impact on a global scale, such as climate change, energy, ecology, noise and visual pollution, water contamination, ecosystem preservation, circular economy, recycling and reuse, among other issues associated with the protection of natural resources and environment revitalization, that consequently are crucial to human and planet survival. Odeith, Bordallo II, Crack Kids, Jacqueline de Montaigne, Krus, Fahr021.3, Thiago Mazza, Rita Cabaço and the four artists of the Visegrad Group - Mikołaj Rejs, Fat Heat, Tomáš Junker aka Pauser and Dupla RCLS, are the authors that awaken us for this urgent look and invites to meet the most essential values.


The nucleus of Urban Culture, at Parque Tejo, brings the dimension of intermediation between artistic, social and sports practices in public space, and the way society and cities are inhabited and experienced nowadays, through the intersection between the different fields. The interventions in Vasco da Gama Bridge, in the basketball courts and skate park, translate this meeting. There we find the portuguese writer Odeith, the columbian writer Zurik, and the artists Nuno Viegas, Trafic and collective Thunders, which includes Bray, Chure, Monster, Klit, Mar and Mosaik.


Casal dos Machados, the Multiculturalism nucleus, proposes a glance over communities and different cultures, crossing these themes with important values such as freedom, diversity and equality, through large-scale interventions, in buildings glabes and walls, carried out by the three Open Call winners - Juan José Surace , MOTS and Rocket01 – , and for the works of Colectivo Rua, D*Face, IAmEelco, Los Pepes, Mabel Vicentef, Nark, Pedro Podre and Stom500.


The creative power of urban artists is expressed in MURO LX_2021 through the gathering of different techniques, such as drawing, painting, illustration, graffiti, 3D, design, typography and sculpture, crossing them with the territory and identity of the place where they are inscribed, whether in gables, pedestrian and road crossings, shops, pillars, walls or abandoned spaces.


From meetings and reunions - places, arts, artists and people - we built MURO LX_2021, a network that expands and embraces Lisbon and Parque das Nações, always with urban art at the center.
