Urban Xchange that aims to provide a platform for national and international artists who operate outside of traditional systems. The intuition behind this project is to “wear out” the contemporary art practice and, in particular, urban art, as art border, and place it in close contact with the local area in order to stimulate a process of interaction and cross contamination. It is an event that aims to reflect the culture as well as participate in helping define it by using public art as an element of cultural dynamism and growth strategy of socio-economic, cultural and tourism. Over two years of running Urban Xchange has staged exhibitions, events, brought in artists from over 20 countries such as Vhils (Portugal), Dal East (China), Vexta (Australia), Elle (USA), Twoone (Japan), Sabek (Spain), Nafir (Iran) and many more.
