When compared to the cities we’ve lived in like #London, #Tokyo, #Mumbai or #NewYork, #Maastricht has an admittedly slower pace of life, however we do all seem to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our own “busyness”. The #StopLookThink street art project which is part of BIP Liège, is a concept from The Artist and the Others that encourages us to slow down for a moment in our day and allow ourselves to enjoy what we see, think and imagine, and perhaps be inspired and make new discoveries.
The exhibition opened this evening at #SphinxCourt (the forecourt of The Student Hotel (Maastricht) and invites residents, students, and visitors to Maastricht to discover some of our city’s talents over the next ten days. It also provides a good opportunity for young and emerging artists to show their works outside their studio, usual art galleries or institutions.
We spoke to the Head of The Artist and the Others, Jessica Capra about this innovative project. #SlowDownArtMaastricht
