Fresh and irreverent, the current art scene of Bilbao brings some ways to kick out the end of the summer blues.

Artists: Live Wild Collective, Chow & Lin, Erik Kessels & Thomas Mailaender, Luca Locatelli, Sofía Moro, Simon Norfolk, Juan Valbuena.
Dates: until September 30th
Image takes over the city of Getxo, in the greater Bilbao area. Spread all over the facade of some public buildings, on subway walls, inside ephemeral beach boxes and even floating in the water, the festival welcomes a variety of photography formats around the theme of leaving a conflict behind. A chance to enjoy art as a part of city life, where one can wander through the derelict Punta Begoña galleries, jump on Trump’s face in Getxo Antzokia, and enjoy art at this beautiful coastal location.
Exhibition title: Shadow Play
Artists: Javier Téllez
Dates: Until November 18th
Poetic and full of symbols, the work of the Venezuelan artist Javier Téllez manages to trigger through video format our best instincts and sense of humanity around a theme as contemporary as the condition of refugee.
Exhibition title: Infinite Garden. Regarding Bosch.
Artist: Álvaro Perdices
Dates: Until September 17th
The Garden of Earthly Delights is an enigmatic triptych, painted c. 1490 - 1500 by Hieronymus Bosch, which comes to a new life through the work of a contemporary artist. A dark large room is filled with carefully curated fragments of the work of the Flemish artist, Bosch, enlarged, put into motion and interwoven into some kind of narrative. Let this work surround and mesmerize you.
