Art With Me *GNP Tulum
Art With Me *GNP “Presented by TANE” emerged in 2018 as Tulum’s first Arts & Ecoculture Festival. With this year’s festival taking place from April 24-28, we are proud to announce the phase one line-up of international artists and musical acts. Art With Me *GNP is a community-driven festival offering programming across seven core pillars encompassing art, sustainability, music, wellness, culinary, and family as a platform to inspire change. Our theme for 2019 is Change Starts With Me, and a key focus of the festival is bringing awareness and solutions to the infrastructure and environmental challenges that Tulum faces with the mission of building a sustainable future.
Art With Me *GNP will showcase a diverse range of exhibits, including works from Mexican surrealist artist and designer Pedro Friedeberg, Brazilian large-scale biomorphic installation artist Ernesto Neto, legendary New York City street culture artist Keith Haring, American painter dubbed “the godfather of pop surrealism” Mark Ryden, multidisciplinary artist known globally for his larger-than-life sculptures Daniel Popper, four-time Emmy Award-winning artist Wayne White, Colombian sculptor Rafael Gómezbarros, and Canadian artist and nature guide Kirsten Brophy.
Other phase one artists include political Afro-Brazilian artist Paulo Nazareth, key member of the Mayan Warrior and Ilumina teams and James Turrell collaborator Paolo Montiel, Russian artist whose work is featured in the Tulum based IK LAB Margo Trushina, Brazilian fashion designer known for his focus on sustainability Oskar Metsavaht, Mexico City-based art gallery MAIA Contemporary, New York City artist known for his provocative pieces Harif Guzman, and many more amazing artists noted here.
