Urbonas Studio

Founded by Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas (artists and educators, born in Lithuania) Urbonas Studio is the interdisciplinary research program that advocates for the reclamation of public culture in the face of overwhelming privatization, stimulating cultural and political imagination as tools for social change. Often beginning with archival research, Urbonas Studio methodology unfolds complex participatory works investigating the urban environment, architectural developments, and cultural and technological heritage.

Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas¬†have exhibited internationally including the Venice, San Paulo, Berlin, Moscow, Lyon, Gwangju Biennales and Manifesta and Documenta exhibitions. Their writings on the artistic research as a form of intervention to social and political crisis were published in the books “Devices for Action” by MACBA Press, Barcelona and “Villa Lituania” by Sternberg Press.
Urbonas live in Cambridge, Massachusetts and work at MIT.
