URVANITY 2017

NEPTUNO PALACE

24-26 FEBRUARY 2017

Urvanity celebrates its first edition

Urvanity took place for 4 days coinciding with Madrid Art Week 2017 at the Neptuno Palace. During this days the fair became a meeting point where both expert and amateur art collectors could admire and purchase a carefully curated selection of New Contemporary Art.

Unlike the renowned ARCO Contemporary Art Fair and the satellite fairs during the week, Urvanity offered a different kind of artistic content and something unprecedented: a New Contemporary Art that is already established on an international level, with totally new proposals that have never been shown under the same roof at other fairs or events in Madrid.

Manifesto

URVANITY ART

The new contemporary art fair

It is manifest that for several decades new practices, values and codes have coexisted in the cultural landscape of our cities, occupying a place in the world of contemporary art. The issue is how to tie them together, and this cannot be achieved only by means of an urban art fair. Therefore, Urvanity has been conceived as a platform for a New Contemporary Art.

To speak of new art is to catalyze a contemporary project with a historical perspective because “all that is not tradition is plagiarism.” Notably, Urvanity advocates proposals (with a strong base in the urban context of the 1970 ́s up until today) that construct a dialogue with modernity, and, as a result, provide a setting from which we can explain the world around us. It is important not only to consider the work itself but to understand the public space where this very work is composed and that it at the least convey an aesthetic experience.

Urvanity seeks to explore and thus imagine possible future scenarios for this New Contemporary Art, thanks in part to alliances with other initiatives and promoters of culture in our city. To support the creation and spreading of ideas, as well as facilitate access to these practices of contemporary creation that define our vast cultural urban landscape.
