Nuart Journal is a forum for critical discourse and commentary on urban art cultures and street art practice. This inaugural issue marks a pivot point in the development of what could be termed a ‘critical street art’.
In his Editorial, Editor-in-Chief Martyn Reed explains that the theme ‘Space is the Place’ returns us to the subversive and foundational activity of contesting public space – and thus creating spaces of creativity, and resistance, and “giving agency to non-artists.” He argues that this practice of contesting public space defines a critical street art – whether this be independently sanctioned or unsanctioned; human scale or monumental; radically ephemeral or heritage protected.
Nuart Journal publishes traditional academic articles as well as making space for experimental and visual essays. The journal is divided into three sections. In Section I, our academic articles deal with some of the most pressing practical and conceptual issues facing those working with urban art cultures and street art practice. In Section II, our experimental and visual essays provide a powerful aesthetic break from the more traditional papers of section I. Articles in this section are designed to unsettle, delight, and provoke – and to provide a space for less conventional modes of thought. Section III contains interviews and talks from leading artists, curators, and thinkers.
