Urban Art NOW presents the international exhibition Urban Art EFX Amsterdam, exhibiting 14 well-known artists from the Netherlands, various European cities, Mexico and India alongside new and upcoming talents from Amsterdam. The artists present paintings, sculptures, photography and video art. The event includes a big international exhibition in the gallery CBK and a local new talent exhibition in the gallery Art Cage alongside a variety of artistic activities and cultural side-events.
These include an Urban Art workshop for young people in cooperation with the CBK Amsterdam, a family afternoon with guided exposition tours and bio-vegan cake buffet/coffee corner as well as an audio-visual evening lounge-party. These events aim to create a social space that supports communication and exchange among artists, audience and newly involved participants or fans of all ages. Two artists present their own and recent international book releases “Streetfonts” (MadC) and “Fast or Die” (Alex Fakso).
