TUENTI URBAN ART PROJECT TAKES URBAN ART TO THE UNIVERSITY

Urvanity Projects has launched the TUENTI URBAN ART PROJECT initiative with the purpose of linking the professional circuit of contemporary art to the Fine Arts students of five universities and of exposing the creative universe of artists with a consolidated trajectory in the urban sphere. The project curated by Urvanity Projects was developed between October and December 2017.

The University of Barcelona (October 2-6), the University of Murcia (October 16-20), the University of Seville (November 6-10), the University of Zaragoza (November 20-24) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (December 11-15) have participated in the project.

A program of talks, debates and presentations with the participation of academics, researchers, artists, gallerists and other contemporary art professionals took place at each venue. Workshops were given by prestigious artists such as Dos Jotas, Belin, Lula Goce, Uriginal and Antonyo Marest.
