Urban Art Event | After that bad news about the ATM Gallery, really good and interesting news reached me last week: The French art association ARTAQ will present the first urban arts award festival in Berlin at the end of this month!
320 artists across the globe submitted their folios online to receive an Urban Art Award. 19 applicants successfully received an award by the ARTAQ-Jury, 4 of which received Special Jury Awards. For this achievement, the artists chosen are being exhibited in five European cities: Angers, Paris, Berlin, Brussels and Lyon. (artaq.eu)
ARTAQ will use the Stattbad Wedding not just to show artworks by the award winning artists, but to host live painting performances on the theme “Freedom of Expression” by well-known urban artists like Bimer, Emess, Don John, Flow, Goin, Konny Steding, Le Cyklop, Macay, Matox, MTO, SP-38, and others!
After the “Urban Affairs 2”, “Dreamyourtopia”, and “No More Sugar For The Monkey” this is the fourth big urban art event which takes place in the former abandoned swimming bath. I’m looking forward to it!
Location: Stattbad Wedding, Gerichtstr. 65, Berlin
Opening: Friday, 26 November 2010, 7pm
