The Nuart Festival was initiated in 2001 and follows the ethos behind the Nu teams desire to provide a regional annual platform for national and international artists who operate outside of traditional gallery systems.The event aims to stimulate debate by challenging entrenched notions of what art is and can be by celebrating the production of progressive contemporary urban art and street culture in the 21st century.
Nuart 2007 is our most ambitious yet, a truly international line up of artists have been invited to Stavanger to produce what promises to be one of the years most outstanding â€œurban artâ€ events. From legendary and much respected pioneers such as Blek Le Rat and Charles Krafft to relative newcomers Slinkachu and Wordtomother, Nuart 07 explodes across mediums and the city from the central show based this year at Stavangerâ€™s main Museum of Fine arts, Rogaland Kunstmuseum.
