One of the best parts of this horrible pandemic is that people are really challenging their creativity to organize new ways to relate to each other and do business. We’re proud to be a part of URVANITY as the fair celebrates its 5th Edition – this year, it is a double edition, actually.
Today begins the On-Line edition. The physical edition begins May 27th at COAM in Madrid.
You can now tour galleries from your home’s comfort, from London, Bogota, Caracas, New York, Amsterdam, and a few cities in Spain. Each will feature just one artist URVANITY SOLO SHOWS 2021.
Here’s a sneak peek!

“Urvanity seeks to explore and thus imagine possible future scenarios for this New Contemporary Art,” they say boldly in the manifesto for this art fair/cultural platform in Madrid. A thrilling nexus is created here in this college campus of architecture where art from the streets is evolving in such ways that it is invited to come in from the street.
Whatever your perspective is on this evolution, we encourage the conversation – which usually contains elements of tribalism (various), resistance, acceptance, even euphoria. During breaks from hosting the BSA Talks this weekend we are also skipping and swerving through the crowds to look at the art that galleries have on offer.
Here we offer a very quick sample of some items that have caught our eye, looked fresh, or were indicative of larger movements in the so-called “scene”. And we use the word “scene” very loosely, because there is really not such thing as a homogeneous scene, only a constellation of them which are intersecting, coalescing, and redefining themselves. Some pieces are remarkable.
Here is the past, existing side by side with the future.
