It all began 20 years ago, when the first art gallery appeared on this discreet street in the Lavapiés district very close to the Reina Sofía Museum: Helga de Alvear. Afterwards, others arrived such as the Moisés Pérez de Albéniz Gallery, Espacio Mínimo or Casa Sin Fin, linked to the Periférica publishers. Together they have managed to take the world of art beyond the limits of the Salamanca district and, gathering on such an accessible street, they have allowed that art lovers, potential buyers or just browsers, to enter these small street museums as they please.
One gallery is Maisterravalbuena, which has just inaugurated an exhibition dedicated to the Danish photographic collective Kassen, as part of the Naked Photographer Project. With their latest artistic challenge, they have enjoyed the participation of artists that were asked to take their clothes off to carry out some sort of portrait on their naked bodies. However, it is their clothes and not them who appear in these photographs. Each artist chose the way they would be represented, as we can in one that appears in Instagram format. It is located on Calle Doctor Fourquet, 6, and it is open until March 14th (free entrance).
