The Anatomy Rooms, Marischal College, Shoe Lane, Aberdeen AB10 1AN
Join us at The Anatomy Rooms as we kick-off our program with a celebration of Aberdeen’s artistic talent and a special ‘stand-up’ show by Nuart Aberdeen artist Julien de Casabianca.
Jon Reid of Mood of Collapse presents Follow / Unfollow – a group exhibition of projected artworks in TAR’s atmospheric Museum Room. Next door, Gray Square – a collective of students from Grays School of Art – stage a takeover in the Project Room with music and visuals.
From 20:00–21:15 join Julien de Casabianca for a “hilarious and poignant” insight into his practice, process, ideas, influences, family and thoughts behind the geopolitics of street art.
Including over 200 images illustrating his career as a visual artist, filmmaker and founder of the global participatory art project – Outings Project – de Casabianca has won hearts and minds around the world with this deeply personal trip down memory lane.
“Some people cry at every lecture” he proudly proclaims. Test your mettle, meet Nuart Aberdeen’s international guests and discover a wealth of talented local artists at this social evening to mark the beginning of Nuart Aberdeen 2017.
Soft drinks and alcohol available on a donation basis.
