Urban Art Circuit (Cura) runs until the beginning of

This Thursday (21), the 6th edition of CURA – Urban Art Circuit began. This year, the festival runs until November 2, in the region of Praça Raul Soares, in the capital of Minas Gerais. The edition proposes to open new dimensions and access other layers of existence.

The event receives Brazilian and international artists, such as Kassia Rare Karaja Hunikuin with Coletivo Mahku, from Acre; Sadith Silvano and Ronin Koshi, Shipibo, Peru; and Ed-Mun from Minas Gerais. “Now I’m just painting healing corners. We really need it. Brazil and the planet do. I chose a painting for the moment of pandemic and for the irreparable losses”, says Kássia.

the festival

CURA is one of the biggest public art festivals in Brazil. Its debut in Belo Horizonte took place in 2017, being the first painting circuit in gables in the city. With works carried out in the hypercenter of Belo Horizonte, the Festival gave rise to the first urban art viewpoint in the world, located on Rua Sapucaí.

Among the works built in 2017, the tallest murals painted by women in Latin America and the largest work of public art by an indigenous artist stand out.

Memory

In view of the pandemic scenario of the new coronavirus and the Brazilian political situation, the festival also promises to be a gesture of memory. Therefore, the event claims the right to mourn and that death be experienced collectively.
