The exhibition “Reading the Street” will be opened at Vent Space project space on 11 May at 4pm. The exhibition will be open until 16 May, Sunday to Thursday 12-6pm.
On 16 May at 6pm there will be a presentation of the book “Reading the Street” by Urbiquity.

The exhibition showcases a selection of student work resulting from the “Art and the City” studio at the Estonian Academy of Arts as well as a presentation of the book “Reading the Street – Creative Methods in Doing Critical Urban Research on the Example of Two Streets in Milan and Tallinn” by the urbanism platform Urbiquity.

The aim of the “Art and the City” studio has been to merge artistic practices with researching urban space. The studio is interdisciplinary and its results have been publicly presented in the form of exhibitions and talks. The wider aim of the studio is to expand the concept of city-making – asking who and what has the power to shape urban space and what possibilities inhabitants of a city have for more agency over space. Therefore, the resulting material is not only targeted towards specialists, but a more general public.

The exhibition consists of a selection of student work resulting from the “Art and the City” studio, which showcases how creative methodologies can enable difficult and critical conversations. The book “Reading the Street” combines the results of the 2018 “Art and the City” studio with the results from a parallel workshop conducted in Milan and offers a critical analysis of using creative methods for urban research.

Urbiquity is an international platform for urbanism, founded by Mattias Malk, Stefano Carnelli and Pablo Conejo.
