in the Spanish capital, becoming the first event of its kind in the country
. This bold and exciting initiative stands as yet another proof of urban art’s fast-pacing growth within the world of new contemporary art, becoming a fresh interest for numerous collectors, galleries and even esteemed auction houses around the world. Taking place over four days during Madrid Art Week, from February 23rd through 26th 2017
, Urvanity is a fair dedicated to New Contemporary Art, advocating proposals that construct a dialogue with modernity, and, as a result, provide a setting from which we can explain the world around us. It is important not only to consider the work itself but to understand the public space where this very work is composed and that it at the least convey an aesthetic experience.
