Nuart Aberdeen returns: first artist announced

Posted on February 09, 2018

Nuart Aberdeen returns to the Granite City for the second year running this April, with UK-based 'craftivist' Carrie Reichardt the first artist out.

The festival takes place from Thursday 12 – Sunday 15 April 2018 and will be supplemented by a program of talks, presentations, film screenings, walking tours, workshops and events.

That’s not the only good news: the organization is delighted to have signed a three-year agreement with Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council to deliver Nuart Aberdeen to The Granite City until April 2020.

About Carrie Reichardt

Carrie Reichardt's work blurs the boundaries between craft and activism, using the techniques of muralism, mosaic and screen-printing to create intricate and powerful artworks.
Carrie is currently artist-in-residence at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon but will be taking time out to visit the historic archives at Aberdeen City Council in February.

"This is my first visit to Aberdeen and I can’t wait to explore these archives to find out more about the city’s rich heritage” Carrie said. "I always try to work site specifically - with a focus on people’s history - to try and shine a light on stories that, for one reason or another, get forgotten over time.”
