A project commissioned by Urvanity and B.Murals. During the months of March, April and May, when the world seemed to be on pause, something was still cooking in Barcelona.

Galleries are back!

22 June, 2020

Quarantine has had us all glued into our phones and screens. At least during these months, our way of seeing and buying art has changed, and galleries have taken advantage of this period of confinement to renew and tune up.

Virtual projects we can’t wait to see come to life

21 May, 2020

In the recent months it seems that the world has stopped. It has pressed the pause key and has left us halfway. Halfway of our professional projects, halfway of our planned trips, halfway of those wines with friends. Halfway of what was to come. But creativity doesn’t stop and the desire of the artists to […]

Artistic initiatives and proposals in times of quarantine

27 March, 2020

It’s when facing big crises, when society tends to show its most creative side. That capacity to renovate and adapt to new ways of using everyday tools and media. That’s precisely what happened during these days, where most of us are in quarantine: artists, galleries and other artistic and cultural agents who have seen their […]

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.
