Once again Nuart returns to ‘Tou Scene’… a large converted Victorian brewery. From the beginning of the 1980‘s the buildings stood empty and abandoned for two decades until the location became a popular cultural landmark. Tou Scene is a stones throw from the shore of the west coast Fjords and only a ten minute walk from the town centre of Stavanger. This special location is one of the countries leading arts centers and in September is the focus of The Nuart festival attracting thousands of visitors to its old brewery doors.
This year’s Nuart Festival exhibition introduces, for the first time, the term ‘Post-Street Art‘. This expression has been adopted to describe artworks, artists and events that are “informed by” and “aware of” the strategies, forms and themes explored by Street Art but which couldn’t rightly be regarded as ‘Street Art’ or ‘Street Artists’ per se. The term could also be used to describe a new breed of studio practice-based street artist, whose interest in and knowledge of the contemporary art world often far supplants that of an engagement with the street.
Participating artists: Add Fuel (PT), Axel Void (ES), Eron (IT), Evol (DE), Fintan Magee (AU), Henrik Uldalen (NO), Hyuro (AR), Jaune (BE), Jeff Gillette (US), KennardPhillipps (UK), MTO (FR), Nipper (NO), Robert Montgomery (UK) and SpY (ES)
