ABOUT URBAN INTERVENTION
The urban intervention creates an open air art gallery, allowing the population to experience artistic manifestations in everyday life.
Free access and simple concept, stimulates endless interpretations and aesthetic experimentation in different social groups and age groups.
It also offers to the new generations a closer contact with the universe of contemporary art. The urban intervention promotes greater engagement with the art world and proposes to transform the daily lives of thousands of individuals in each exposure. When designing interventions, Srur breaks the limits of the art system andexpands the presence of art in society.
