UrbanApa x Ateneum 2021
UrbanApa x Ateneum brings urban contemporary art to a museum context
UrbanApa x Ateneum brings urban contemporary art to a museum context, and for three days, a group of diverse artists – all professionals in performance art, music, and visual arts – take over Ateneum and create surprising, interdisciplinary and playful works.
The thematic landscape of this year’s festival is tides and currents. In October, the festival sets out to look at the world around people, the possibilities of art to enable change. How are tides and currents, transformation and metamorphosis, subversion and shaking present right now? How does the world move themand how do one move the world? Can change be playful, pleasurable, feminist and communal? Or utopian?
