Bombay Canvas by Urban Dreams: what awaits visitors

The Rise Entertainment team, which presented Moscow with Midsummer Night's Dream and After Halloween, will return to the city environment again. This time we are talking about her perhaps the most unusual project - a two-week pop-up exhibition Bombay Canvas by Urban Dreams, which debuted as an urban party on the territory of the Kleinhouse loft-complex successfully held in the autumn of 2018. canvas, which gives everyone the opportunity to unleash their creative potential and show creativity. Anyone can become an artist in this situation in the period from April 20 to May 5.

To implement this bold undertaking, the exhibition creators chose office space in the business center of the VTB Arena Park project at the address: Leningradsky Avenue, bldg. Modern spacious office space of class "A" will allow to embody all large-scale ideas of the organizers, be it an intricate art object or collective meditation.


One of the central objects in this space is already a significant reason to visit the exhibition. In this capacity, the sculpture will be presented ILUMINA from the Mexican designer Pablo Gonzasles Vargas, the founder of the cult art group Mayan Warrior. ILUMINA already created a sensation two years ago at the legendary Burning Man festival and will be the first foreign festival object brought to Russia. This is a sound-light installation that comes to life with the collective energy of the audience in the process of meditative practice. The sculpture is equipped with special terminals and sensors that connect to the person and read individual vibrations.

"Express yourself"

One of the main attractions of the exhibition is the space in which the creative energy of visitors is not limited by anything but their imagination. Glue, diode ribbons, paints of all colors, paper and everything else that can still come up to the head of a modern person who is at a crossroads between technology and organic matter. At the end of each day, the works of visitors will be brought together by the curators of the zone, so that in the next day they will again become for someone a “white canvas”. Here guests will be greeted by graffiti and neon constructions created by artist Antonia Leo - not only as spectators, but also as accomplices. Together with Anthony, Veronika Vitrinika, a graphic designer and decorator in the field of fashion retail, will be engaged in the creative zone “Express Yourself”. In the collaboration, both artists are preparing a special interactive art performance, which will last two weeks and can be watched from the very beginning. In addition, anyone can participate in the creation of a mural.

Installation "Digital Bottle"

Despite the expression “getting into the bottle”, hardly anyone tried to do it for real, but Bombay Canvas will give such an opportunity. Getting into this area, visitors will be surrounded by waves, overflows and bubbles, forcing you to truly feel yourself inside a bottle of gin.

Performance "Crystal"

Here, six times during the Bombay Canvas, guests will witness how on the body of a performer immersed in an aquarium under the influence of the chemical environment crystals themselves grow. At other times, visitors will be able to try to grow them on their own - in specially prepared laboratory flasks and bottles of gin. The performance was prepared by Yulia Borova, a participant in the artistic and scientific laboratory of SAVE and an artist and performer, Anastasia Krasina.


You can also feel yourself as an artist by preparing your unique gin and tonic, for which the organizers built a special wall with a variety of tonic and "garnish". The wall on which the taps with various ingredients are attached, in fact, should become a full participant in what is happening. The design of the tubes, iridescent in different colors, will create an atmosphere of sacrament and provide a huge number of ideas for the manifestation of creativity.

Finally, remember that Bombay Canvas is not only a demonstration of technical and artistic achievements, but also a place where you can relax after a long day. Throughout the exhibition, musicians will perform here and, of course, bars will not stop working.

The doors will open its doors on April 19 - at the party Urban Dreams. The dress code will also line up around the motive of a white canvas, in which any fantasy can appear. MAC and R + Co are responsible for the beauty of the visitors at the party, in whose corners it will be possible to invent a unique look that matches the theme of the party. The creators of Urban Dreams offer to bind two themes - urban urban jungle and fabulous nature. Broken geometric shapes, cutting-edge fabrics with holographic prints, plastic and recycled materials that add futurism to the image. Well, let's not forget about the "chemical" of the 1980s - fuchsia and orange peel sticking out in different directions is most welcome.
