Videos: The Tunnels – Nuart 2019

We’ve just received this experimental movie from the Nuart Festival headquarters, put together by Ukrainian art film duo MZM Projects, the makers of the famed Imaginary City film. Using fragments of artist talks, excerpts from the news, interviews and curatorial text by festival director Martyn Reed, the filmers resampled and infused these with the lyrics from Tricky’s Brand New, You’re Retro, 1995 track (by the Bristol artist and producer from which the exhibition took its cues). Taking a different angle to capture and present the vibe during the […]

Streets: Nuart Festival 2019 (Part II)

Last Saturday marked the official opening of the 19th edition of Nuart Festival and we were happy to once again attend the festivities which this year lined up with the local Pride celebrations.

Working around this year’s theme of the festival, Brand new, you’re retro, the works presented here successfully utilized the unique opportunity for the […]

As we’ve arrived in Stavanger for the 19th edition of the Street Art phenomenon that is the Nuart Festival, we’re impressed with the amount of work that the participating artists have already put around town.

Streets: Nuart Aberdeen (Part III)

The other day, we teased some of the new public works that were being created during the recently held Nuart Aberdeen 2019. Today, we wanted to showcase the other seven artists whose work we’ve enjoyed during our stay. Working around the idea of telling stories, the artists uncovered less known parts of the city’s history (Vhils), revealed another side of important events (Axel Void), and referenced the unfortunate reality the city is facing (Strøk). Scattered around the city center, these pieces show the variety of […]
