Matadero Madrid is always on the lookout for new and interesting things and here is where we feature such track slider finds. From week to week or month to month, we feature the latest around Madrid’s art world. This is an open space for all things that relate to artistic expression, its study, exhibition, and performance. We will feature and discuss the latest in video camera dolly track gallery exhibits (who’s showing what and where); musical performances (news about the music, if there’s anything newsworthy in the musical direction, or any experimentations going on); also, exciting new publications within the art world—we cannot have too many ways to talk about and spread the word about hand held camera stabilizer art; there’s also features on the up and coming classes on offer at the Matadero Madrid itself. This is a great jump-off point to find out more about them. Not only that, we’re quite interactive here too. We often ask visitors to take part in the glide gear projects of Matadero Madrid and make this a true community effort; and indeed it has proven to be a successful one. In last year’s Day of Music, we asked for participants to be our official Matadero Madrid tweeters, covering the event with an all access pass and updating the popular steadicam stabilizer social networking site. We selected three winners out of the countless entrants who auditioned via what else, Twitter. The three lucky winners who were chosen did end up doing the live coverage and had a terrific time both covering the Day of Music at the Matadero Madrid and being flooded with Twitter followers and responses. Whether its workshops for children like the one held by the Museum of Collections ICO through the Hablar en Arte for kids 13 to 17 years of age, whose aim is to help them comprehend art through practice and how it can transform the everyday and ordinary; or A Night of Books, a book launch of 11 artists and a comprehensive review of Open x works in the cold storage area of the Matadero Madrid; or a photography workshop entitled “Urban Direct Action/ Who is Spanish Today?” by Venezuelan photographer Nelson Garrido that aims to work in a creative progression with participants to illustrate “what is not” typically in the city, that which is represented in urban space or advertising material that is at odds with our own experience. These are some samples of the goings on at the Matadero Madrid and the things we like to feature here. For the latest, this is where you’ll find them.
