Galeria Union opens in Palermo

After two happy years in San Telmo, Galeria Union has moved to a new location in Palermo. Set in a quiet street in Palermo Hollywood, the new location provides a workspace for the graffitimundo team, a gallery space for exhibitions and events and a teaching and production space for artists.

This year we will be running a series of art exhibitions and events, and are finalising a program of artist-led workshops on stencil art, graffiti and muralism. More news to follow!

If you’d like to visit the gallery we currently have a group exhibition on display from a number of the urban art scene’s leading artists.

The new gallery is at Costa Rica 5929. We are open from Monday to Friday, 12 til 7pm, and on weekends and outside of the hours by appointment. You can see a selection of available works online  here: Please feel free to visit us!

Here are a few photos from the new space, and our opening party last week.

Google Cultural Institute

We’re proud to have joined Google’s Cultural Institute as a partner in their Street Art Project, which aims to document and street art from around the world.

We have created a collection of over 300 images which represent some of the best examples of urban art from Buenos Aires, both past and present, together with gallery works from some of the scene’s leading artists.

The high resolution images can be magnified to reveal minute levels of detail such as brush strokes and wall texture. The images are available on strictly non commercial basis, and all intellectual property rights remain with the artists.

In addition to the photo collection, our partnership with Google has enabled us to create virtual exhibitions which explore different aspects of the scene and its history, and virtual guided tours in English and Spanish using Google Street View.

We’re also happy to be able to offer a  mobile app, available for free through Google Play for Android phones  (IOS coming soon..)
