The Phe Gallery proposal inaugurates the parallel activities of the Porto festival, occupying the San Felipe Castle and other spaces in the city during the month of August.
Phe Festival and the Culture area of Puerto de la Cruz organize for the sixth consecutive year Phe Gallery, a call open to creators for the presentation of artistic projects in different formats (painting, sculpture, graffiti, installations, photography, illustration, video art, performance, window dressing...), which will be shown to the public in the collective exhibition that will take place at the Castillo San Felipe Cultural Space from July 28 to August 27, a collaborative proposal that kicks off the parallel activities in the 2023 edition of the festival.
Phe Gallery is a platform for the dissemination of current art made in the Canary Islands, generating creative and social actions to bring cultural innovation closer to all audiences. It offers an open space for meeting and dialogue for emerging artists from the islands, thus collaborating with the promotion of culture as a factor of sustainable development in Puerto de la Cruz. Its objective is to serve as a means to give visibility and dissemination to projects by new authors or groups that reflect on contemporary art, highlighting aspects related to sustainability and the social context. This project is developed especially in collaboration with Juventud Canaria.
Curated in this edition by Beatriz Roca, the exhibition will be made up mainly of a selection of works received through the registration form on the festival website, in which they will have to attach a digital portfolio with their proposal before June 9.
This initiative coincides with the eighth edition of the Phe Festival, which will bring together in Puerto de la Cruz an outstanding line-up of national, international and local artists in the two days of concerts that will take place on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th at its usual venue on the esplanade from the pier, where attendees will find a complete festival experience. Groups like the British Orbital and The Reytones together with the Argentine Trueno lead a bill that completes Arde Bogotá, Natalia Lacunza, Second, Shinova, Rocío Márquez & Bronquio and many other current references.
In addition to the days of concerts, Phe Festival once again includes a varied program of parallel activities with Phe Urban Sports and Phe Yoga multiplying the attractions with the expanded Phe Summer Camp proposal, and the collaboration of the city's cultural environment.
Season tickets to attend the festival are already on sale on the platform Tickety.es.
The website phefestival.es and the festival's social networks will offer updated information with details of the activities, calls and news that make up the Phe 2023 program.
