CA2M Centro de Arte Dos De Mayo

One of my favourite sentece is, especially when your walking and not in a hurry is:

“Always do a different route when you return”.

I know that it sounds like a Alice in Wonderland quote, but it’s mine, really mine, because I do believe this is the best way to discover new places.

I am telling you this because with my return route I discovered a better way to ge to Móstoles Centro de Arte Dos De Mayo. On my way there it took me more than one hour from the center of Madrid with the metro. On my back it was much easier with the cercanias from Móstoles central station, and even cheaper.

Centro de Arte Dos De Mayo is the reason for a trip to Móstoles. It’s a huge center and there is a special installation by Sergio Prego until the 26 of febraury that you’ll probably see more than once in Instagram. I have to admit, this huge room was made for Instagram shooting.

This installacion is ispired by J. G. Ballard novel (and movie) “Highrise”. Probably because I know the movie I could enjoy it even more.

I post a picture without people and one with, just to give an idea of the proportions.

All the other works of art are part of the collections of the CA2M.

Loewe at Real Jardín Botánico

When a luxury brand celebrates an anninversary with an exhibition the most common output is an exhibition in a museum with all sort of sketches and products designed and produced along the decades.

Well, Loewe with the project #PastPresentFuture at the Real Jardín Botanico, did something more.

I couldn’t miss this exhibition even if shows up for few weeks, but Madrid has been full of Casa Loewe prints since the begin of the summer. I went on the last day, luckyly, and I was so impressed.

The exhibition was divided into three rooms, one the central room was basically a very chic little shop, the second one on the left was the anniversary room with all the prints of the adv on the floor and on the wall, with a plexi library full of historic and iconic pieces of Loewe story.

The ideal place where to take inspiring pictures.

Then on the right comes the Steven Meisel flowers exhibition, giant and tiny pictures of flower composition shot by the genius fashion photographer.

And I was glad to discover this beautiful location too, I have never though of walking around botanical gardens in Madrid in December.
