spain’s network of trade transportation routes hosts art in motion during the duration of the ‘truck art project‘. the cultural program sees the transformation of palibex’s commercial vehicles into a fleet of mobile artworks, rolling through the spanish topography.

 

10 trucks are a starting point for a total of 100 artistic proposals. some of the most recognized creatives in the country have already participated, including: javier arce, suso33, okuda san miguel, abraham lacalle, marina vargas, javier calleja, and daniel muñoz. in the following months, a selection of protagonists in the contemporary art scene will take part in the project, adding to the program and bringing public art to places where cultural offerings are rarely observed.

the ‘truck art project’ has been realized through a collaboration between entrepreneur and art collector jaime colsa, owner of palibex, and iam gallery madrid. a selection of the vehicles will house exhibitions inside, becoming mobile galleries that continue to spread art to previously inaccessible and unusual locales.
