Brought to you by the team behind Stavanger’s internationally renowned Nuart Festival, Nuart Aberdeen will see 11 international street artists descend on The Granite City this April.
Developed in collaboration with Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council, Nuart Aberdeen will provide a platform for local, national and international artists to showcase their work through a series of site-specific murals, installations, interventions, and temporary exhibitions.
The festival takes place from Friday 14 – Sunday 16 April (Easter Weekend) and will be supplemented by a program of talks, presentations, film screenings, walking tours and workshops over three days.
Leading the line-up is Scottish-born artist and Venice Biennale participant Robert Montgomery, who just this week was quoted at the prestigious BAFTA Awards ceremony by UK national treasure Stephen Fry.
German duo Herakut, widely regarded as leading lights of the global street art movement, will furnish an Aberdeen landmark with a large-scale mural in their inimitable style, while French artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca brings his participatory art project, Outings, to the city. In collaboration with children from four local schools, De Casabianca will embellish the streets with characters plucked from the archives of the Aberdeen Art Gallery (which is currently closed for renovation until winter 2017).
In Aberdeen’s year of ‘History, Heritage and Archaeology’, Nuart Aberdeen seeks to reveal how Street Art can create an environment for a more imaginative use of public space, something Nuart has been dedicated to realising since its inception in 2001.
More artist announcements will be made over the coming weeks.
