Join us for the opening of Urbano Encounters, a Retrospective Exhibtion celebrating eight years of art-making at Urbano Project. Co-curated by Colombian-born curator/artist Julián Serna and Stella Aguirre McGregor, Urbano Encounters will review various multidisciplinary, socially-engaged projects that have taken place at Urbano, including public interventions in the City of Boston, collaborations with professional artists, and the narratives of Urbano’s Youth Artists.

On view in Urbano Encounters will be selections from recent and historic exhibitions, including Nora Valdez’s Immigration Nation, Pablo Helguera’s Librería Donceles, Salvador Jimenez’s I am not Who you Think I am, Darren A. Cole’s Blue Hat, Gronk’s Inside/out, Hannah Burr’s Attendant, Lina María Giraldo’s City Journalist, and Pedro Reyes’ Palas por Pistolas.

Urbano’s public art projects include Nomadic Civic Sculpture, Harvesting Walls, Freedom Trail on Trial, Square Roots of Boston, Peace Line, Crossing Urban Boundaries, and Speak Out. Act Up. Move Forward.

In conjunction with the retrospective, we’ll be hosting a series of events throughout the fall– stay tuned!
