From urban to contemporary
The exhibition themed “from urban to contemporary” showcases an eclectic variety of artwork. These range from paintings, sculptures, installations, photography to video art, created by key-players of the contemporary Urban Art movement. It highlights a snap-shot of their current artistic development as well as the story behind an up-and-coming artist generation, whose roots lay in the Graffiti and Street-art culture. The featured artists matured their work into the international art and gallery scene, continuously advancing their artistic expression, techniques, orientation and professionalism. They have evolved beyond their street-art roots, emancipating their picture language from sub-cultural ties of their early years into an own representative and unique style.

Urban Art EFX includes diverse cultural activities that will attract a broad range of visitors including: two art workshops for young people, an outdoor poster exhibition, several live mural paintings, an event of live canvas painting following an art auction for a social cause, a club night that will feature: video art installations, a photo exhibition and light-painting.

Also EFX will include an urban art & gallery city tour, a separate event with artist’s presentation and podium discussion about his work and urban art as well as a family day including several guided exhibition tours of the gallery. This event targets cultural and art interested attendants and it reaches out to new audiences of all ages. Furthermore, it includes events and activities that integrate into the multicultural neighbourhoods of Amsterdam Oost and Watergraafsmeer.
