By 26 February, 2013 August 3rd, 2020 No Comments

Bloop Festival returns to Ibiza after the success of the first edition in 2011. From the 15 th of July to the 31st of August 2012, forty creators and international artists arrive on the island of Ibiza to liven things up with exhibitions, video projections, wall-paintings, performance art and live music experiences.

This art event is synonymous with proactive and interactive art. This huge collective artistic experience, which is in this second edition, treats of and analyses the question of appearance. The aim of this event is to help the island to recover its image as a cultural destination.

Different areas of the island will be set up for artists to exhibit their work. All activities are free of charge, open to the public and are suitable for all ages. The focal point is the Ses Coves Blanques lighthouse in Sant Antoni, with five scheduled exhibitions accompanied by sound that is inspired by the mysterious underwater frequency “bloop”. In the cultural centre of Punta des Moli, a project is being developed called Bloop Kids, with workshops in the visual arts and technology led by Ara, Claudio Sinatti, Gigorio Partesana and Alogeno.

The Can Jeroni art gallery in Sant Josep presents a solo exhibition by Martha Cooper, one of the most renowned photographers of the street scene, who is an icon in the history of hip hop and urban culture. Biokip will show its Poseidon work on the beach of Cala Tarida. Also, in the old Ses Salines salt warehouse, holograms created by the talented Bonsaininja will be projected. The walls of other rooms and galleries will be the supports for the works of other artists such as Marc Colomines and his video, Dalt Vila, among other works by Interesnni Kazky, Phlegm, Boris Hoppek, Btyo and H101.
