Casco Viejo, Panama
Panama City’s sixth annual MACROFEST — a grand, multidisciplinary celebration of contemporary culture held in the city’s historical district — is now in full swing in Casco Viejo.
We’re happy to be lending a hand with this year’s festival, whose core initiative engages young artists locally and around the world. We’ll be exhibiting Panamanian artists Jonathan Harker & Donna Conlon's video piece Domino Effect — a portrait of present day Casco Antiguo, in which the camera tracks a succession of antique colonial era bricks in a chain reaction through the neighborhood’s streets. The piece will be projected tonight at 7pm across the surface of the Iglesia La Merced in front of American Trade Hotel.
We are also hosting a photo exhibition through March 15 with Chilean street style photographer Majo Arévalo, whose Viste La Calle blog keeps pulse with the inspired looks of modern South America.
