The Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art opens its doors to the public on 16 September 2017. This center for exhibitions, research and exchange on urban art is unique in the world. The big inaugural exhibition presents works by 150 of the most important contemporary urban artists. On the opening weekend, Bülowstrasse will be transformed into an open-air art gallery with an extensive program featuring live painting and performances by renowned artists, workshops, show acts and more.

On Saturday evening at 7 pm, a new, globally unique cultural institution officially opens: the URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART. The museum will follow the guiding principle of “Connect. Create. Care.” And it will be more than just an exhibition space. In addition to works by artists from the contemporary international and local urban art scenes, URBAN NATION also offers a novel platform for exchange, dialogue, research and educational projects relating to urban art. For the inaugural exhibition, a team of ten curators led by executive creative director Yasha Young selected some 150 leading artists to create exclusive artworks for URBAN NATION. They include outstanding international figures such as Shephard Fairy, Cranio, Olek, Fintan Magee or Lora Zombie and important home-grown artists such as Mimi S, Herakut or deerBLN.
