Urban Art Fair, will take place from June 10 to 13, 2021 for its great return under the glass roof of the Carreau du Temple. During these three days, forty French and international galleries will present more than 100 artists from the international urban art scene.
During the fair, visitors will have the opportunity to explore an abundant program; outdoor installations, workshops for children, online catalog, limited editions, private visits, dedications and performances.
For the first time this year, Urban Art Fair will take place both physically and digitally thanks to a partnership with Artsper, the online marketplace for contemporary art. For this occasion, an Urban Art Fair catalog will be created on the platform in order to promote the digital presentation of works.
Urban Art Fair will also be rich in colors on the square of the Carreau du Temple. Thanks to a collaboration with the association Le M.U.R., four panels will be set up in front of the main entrance of the Carreau du Temple. Four artists will paint from Friday, May 21st in the presence of the public, who will be able to appreciate the different styles and techniques of each of them.
Outdoor sculpture: The French artist Brusk will present, like a totem, a major work echoing the current events and bearing in volume the colors of the official visual of Urban Art Fair | Paris 2021: The Power of Culture. The Swiss artist Simon Berger will present a giant glass cube in which, with his favorite tool, the hammer, he will have previously “engraved” a portrait.

Workshops for children and guided tours for families are planned throughout the fair, in partnership with the Musée en Herbe (the only museum for 3 to 103 year olds) and Pébéo (supply of creative leisure items).
This year Urban Art Fair will offer two editions for sale at the fair. In the continuity of the 2020 edition, Stanley Donwood’s work Paris Apocalypse is transformed by the artist into “Paris Rainbows Apocalypse” as a symbol of hope.
The work The Power of Culture, created by the French artist Brusk, embodies both the emptiness that has settled for over a year, the lack of visibility for art but also this notion of hope that is found in the work of Stanley Donwood. The hope that creation offers, which always surpasses crises, because it knows how to feed itself and helps us to move forward, to find colors again…
