URBAN NATION opens this weekend and it’s UNique. UNited. UNstoppable.
Since 2013, URBAN NATION has been transforming Berlin’s facades into a giant outdoor gallery, maintaining Berlin’s status as a street art capital. Their iconic murals colour our city and bring together some of the world’s most celebrated street artists. But this weekend, URBAN NATION are bringing their work indoors.
The URBAN NATION museum opens this Friday 16th September at Bülowstrasse 7. Its opening party, UNique. UNited. UNstoppable., will run over from Friday through to Saturday and invites the city to see the street art exhibition they’ve kept – uncharacteristically – behind closed doors.
URBAN NATION has built a street art temple in Bülowstrasse.
In contrast to a conventional museum, the architectural and exterior surfaces will become canvasses themselves, turning the building into an artwork in its own right. The mobile façade elements will be kept and preserved along with the more conventional collection of paintings. A catwalk stretching across the entire two-storey interior will allow the exhibited works to be observed both from a distance and close up.
This weekend’s opening exhibition will include around 130 Berlin artists such as Shepard Fairey, Herakut, LOW Bros and 1010.
Spilling out into its Schöneberg surroundings, the exhibition continues outside. An open-air art gallery of street art installations will stretch from Nollendorfplatz to Frobenstrasse.
We have two URBAN NATION starter packs to give away.
Competiton now closed.
