When art comes to the port…

 Culture and identity 

We have previously told you about several projects to enhance and showcase the aesthetic appeal of port infrastructures. The latest example is to be found at the Port of Strasbourg (France), which is hosting a month of artistic projections on the side of the Malteries d’Alsace silo. The project was made possible with the collaboration of the Rhine Higher Institute of Arts. The series of projections will showcase the past and present of the Rhine Port. In Rio (Brazil), the “Rua Walls” exhibition was recently inaugurated. The initiative, which saw 18 artists turn the walls of several warehouses into artworks, is also a community inclusion project. Another public art initiative is to be found in Toronto (Canada), where artists will be invited to take up residence on the Toronto waterfront for sixteen months, creating a dialogue with the local community and bringing vibrancy to the district. In early 2021, Toronto is also set to launch a new public urban art strategy for the next ten years.
