BBC ALBA : NUART ABERDEEN DOCUMENTARY
Screened Jan 2023
Journalist Mairi Rodgers is in Aberdeen for the Nuart Festival, an annual celebration of street art. A self confessed newbie to the scene, she signs up as a volunteer to discover what it’s all about. Aberdeen has established its global reputation, with over 40 huge murals and hundreds of smaller works dotted around the city centre. Mairi soon finds herself assisting some of Europe’s most talented muralists, including Slim Safont, Jacoba Niepoort and Glasgow-based James Klinge.
Mairi meets legendary photographer Martha Cooper, known for documenting the New York graffiti scene in the 1980s. Martha is impressed by the quality of the artwork on offer. But can graffiti really be described as art? And is it legal? Mairi joins Aberdeen artist Jon Reid on a tour of the city’s back streets, where he encourages her to pick up a spray can and make her own mark on this painted city.

A very special event to Kick Off Nuart’s annual street art conference with two old friends.
NUART PLUS KICK OFF Night at the Museum:
Carlo McCormick in conversation with Swoon
19:00-20:30, free entry
Aberdeen Art Gallery, Cowdray Hall, Schoolhill, AB10 1JQ
To launch the festival, join us for a Night at the Museum on June 8th with world-renowned festival artist Swoon in conversation with cultural critic Carlo McCormick. Caledonia Curry, aka Swoon, is a Brooklyn-based artist and the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Drawing on both realistic and fantastical elements, she has been transforming the world with her immersive installations, wheatpaste portraits, and community-based social justice projects for over two decades, and more recently, through film and animation. While her work has adorned the walls of more classical institutions—including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and the Tate Modern—Curry’s overarching aim is always to create accessible art that transports audiences while simultaneously shedding light on pressing social and environmental issues.
