City Art Fest in Nitra connects diverse expressions of contemporary visual art with typical forms of art in urbanspaces as street art and graffiti, and tries to bring them closer to people in their everyday environment in whichthey move and live.
Individual parts of City Art Fest run parallel throughout the whole city; in its streets, parks, squares and housing estates. Visitors move like tourists with a map (informational bulletin) in hand “sightseeing” (in this case looking for different activities of the festival). Participating artists are inspired by the characteristics of Nitra; they react to specific situations and areas in the city.
First year of City Art Fest will introduce over 30 artists from Slovakia and Central Europe (Czech Republic, Poland, and Austria). The visitors will see and experience graffiti, street art, public art, performances, happenings, statues, installations, but also accompanying events such as workshop for pupils, presentation, film screening and a concert.
