Two free tours of the Nizhny Novgorod street art exhibition in the Northern Underpass will be held on August 20 and 21.
You will see 28 works representing a variety of styles of street culture in Nizhny Novgorod, learn their history and understand how regional artists rethink the urban environment and create new objects of street art.

The exhibition is held within the framework of the Days of Culture of Nizhny Novgorod in Moscow for its 800th anniversary.
On the tour you will learn how street art appeared in Russia and how it began; why graffiti is street art, but street art is not only graffiti; what topics are raised by contemporary street artists in their works; how street art achieved recognition in Russia and is it always illegal.
We will also tell you about an unusual place where the exhibition takes place, the Northern Tunnel: how the former technical aisle at –1 level of the park was transformed into a modern exhibition space thanks to the adaptive reuse concept.
Tours will take place on August 20 at 18:00 and on August 21 at 16:00.
