Urbano Project is thrilled to host Pablo Helguera's Librería Donceles a socially-engaged art project that takes the form of a used bookstore with more than 10,000 texts in the Spanish language.
The Urbano Project is looking for community members to perform in a student created dance piece on Saturday, December 10 from 2 to 5pm at Egleston’s Winter Festival. Our performance is about our research on Urbano’s theme of The Other. How do you see yourself in others? How do others see themselves in you? Who do others think you are before they get to know you? How can we imagine a future where no negative experiences of otherness exist?
On November 12, 2016 two Urbano students presented their interactive photography project from Through the lens of resistance — a critical media class at the Urbano Project — at the Youth Arts for Social Change Conference. A conference attendee commented, "These images made me realize biases I have against my own community. Thank you."
"We have decided on all the elements for our final show and now know exactly what we will be doing for the Winter Festival. We are beginning to take time to make choices and perfect each piece now. It is very satisfying to pull in work from way back in September and place it beside something we created today!
The Urbano Fellows, in collaboration with lead artist Salvador Jimenez-Flores, developed an interactive, multi-purpose, movable sculpture. The Fellows are now transforming this movable sculpture into a gallery that will showcase young artists’ works that speak to the theme “The Commons | The Other.” We are conducting an open call for Boston-based youth artists’ submissions to be exhibited in the Black & Brown Gallery.
