2008. LaHostiaFineArts (LHFA). EXPLORANDO USERA (proposed location)


The district of Usera was created in the last restructuring of the 28th of March 1987. Currently it’s a social framework where three distinguishable cultures coexist, Chinese, Latin and Spanish in a complex adjustment process.

The district is limited by the Praga bridge, Paseo de Santa María de la Cabeza, Fernández Ladreda square and highway 401 (Madrid-Ciudad Real). In this district you find lots of actions by the Neighbourhood Redesigning Programme, finished in 1989 and several residential developments. Currently we are experiencing an opening of Usera towards the city centre (works to burry the M30, cultural activation in the Legazpi area, expanding line 3 until Villaverde).

Its location as natural projection of the artistic axis Plaza de Castilla – Legazpi and its bordering situation limited by the river and, until not long ago, by the M30, highway 401 and the exit towards Toledo road, turn this district into an interesting place for artistic exploration.
