NUART Festival 2016, 8 septembre 2016 16:00, 4013 Stavanger, Norway
Nuart Festival – one of the world’s leading celebrations of street art – will take place this September 2016.
For the sixteenth year running, renowned artists from around the world will descend upon Stavanger, Norway with murals, installations and interventions popping up across the city.
This years theme covers two very special anniversaries that relate to Street Art practice in the broadest sense.
It is the 500th Anniversary of Thomas More’s classic novel ‘Utopia’, a book which not only introduced the word and concept, but was also the first to give form to an idea that has captured the human imagination throughout history: that by imagining a better world is possible, we are empowered to create it.
In addition, it is the 100th anniversary of the establishment of DADA at the Cabaret Voltaire, the first movement that advocated for and attempted, much like Street Art, to “abolish the separation between art and daily life”. Something Nuart has been dedicated to realising since its inception in 2001.
We are honoured to be returning to Tou Scene Centre for Contemporary Arts – a former 19th century brewery – to stage the festival’s main indoor exhibition from Saturday 10 September – Sunday 16 October
