Urban Art Biënnale 2017

Posted on March 21, 2017

Every two years the UNESCO World Heritage Völklingen Ironworks hosts the Urban Art Biennale, regarded as one of the most important exhibitions in this field. This years' event invites you to explore urban art in South America.

From 9 April to 5 November this year you can visit an amazing exhibition of abstract creativity that explores current trends in interventional urban art, and particularly those in South America. This artistic movement actively alters and shapes the townscape, and some artists have created pieces specifically for this venue. You can look forward to works from artists such as MadC, OX, Mambo, Subtu and Franco Fasoli.

The Völklingen Ironworks, the world's only surviving smelting works from the Golden Age of the iron and steel industry, provides a fitting stage for urban art. Artists will be showing their works throughout this venue
