Headed up by Maria Fidel Regueros, this division of the UrbanArt collective is involved in conceptualizing visual art projects, which engage with interrogating the public by using the visual. In other words, develop projects, which stimulate discussions using artistic means; curate projects that engage with the contexts of the urban environment, and utilize the multitude of mediums that characterize what is contemporary today.

This area of operation also involves ROOM,  as an online gallery, which showcases both artists and the collective’s projects.
