Suburbia was born in Granada (Spain), on the far European periphery. Experiencing the distance – in geographic, social and economic terms – is the Suburbia project’s foundation.
Born as a non-profit space in 2017, Suburbia evolved into a gallery the year after, following the idea of gathering artists from various continents and cultural backgrounds in an unexpected cluster.
Suburbia’s unconventional and hyperconnected family is constantly changing, expanding alongside artist’s and curator’s friendships and interests, staging particulars and temporary projects in the cities where suburbians are based.
Mirroring this philosophy, the project space ‘Satellite’ popped up in Cape Town (South Africa), and recently in Florence (Italy).
The meeting of suburbians somewhere in the world usually happens in art fairs or projects like ‘Satellite’. The occasion is always a celebration for a group of long-distance friends who share the idea of an artwork a field where different cultures and backgrounds communicate with one another. By participating in antique knowledge, precious memories, secret languages and futuristic crafts.
