France, Paris: March 27 - July 2010: Open air museum

Ces, Crash, Dondi, Jonone, Phase 2, Quik, Rammellzee, Seen, Toxic, Ash, Bando, Brone, Fenx, Goze, Horfe, Jay One, Lek, Nascio, Psyckoze, Pro, RCF, Skki, Swiz

72 artists in all


108-112 Avenue de Wagram 66-72 Rue de Prony

Special performances: les 27 et 28 mars, les 8 et 9 mai et les 19 et 20 juin

Pour un nouveau regard sur l’art, un lieu culturel original s’ouvre à Paris, sur la bâche d’un immeuble en construction, à l’angle de l’Avenue de Wagram et de la rue Prony. Cette exposition inédite par sa forme et son contenu est une véritable toile tendue entre le musée et la rue. 

Elle met en lumière l’extraordinaire vitalité de ce mou- vement artistique nouvellement ancré dans l’histoire de l’art contemporain: LE T.A.G (Tag and Grafitti). Véritable « phare culturel », ce mur de toiles de près de 2 000 m2 accueille, de jour comme de nuit, un Art et non un artiste, illustré par plus de soixante œuvres représentatives de tous les courants : des pionniers américains aux plus jeunes artistes français, dont les toiles seront vendues aux enchères au profit d’une association caritative. Ainsi les œuvres « sauvages », condamnées ailleurs à disparaître, ont ici été choisies et rassemblées en une « collection éphémère », mise à l’abri du temps mais non du regard. 

Ce véritable musée à ciel ouvert est, comme le Graffiti lui-même, une œuvre colo- rée offerte aux passants, sans aucune barrière ni aucune porte entre l’Art et la rue. En autorisant ce musée dans la rue, la ville de Paris accepte, avant bien d’autres, de porter ce débat sur la place publique, permettant à chacun de s’initier à un nouvel Art et à une nouvelle culture : le TAG.

Canada, Toronto: through March 28, 2010 - Cityscrapes

Cityscrapes

Show & Tell Gallery is pleased to present a collaborative exhibition featuring the works of Ryan Dineen and Jacques Oulé entitled "Cityscrapes". This show aims to draw attention to the often overlooked and disregarded images that reflect the subtleties of city living. These images of corrosion, decay and gentrification convey a beauty found in daily life that is nontraditional yet familiar.

Ryan Dineen was born in Toronto in 1983. An accomplished graffiti and mural artist, his fine art demonstrates this background through what can be perceived as a controlled carelessness. Dineen's ongoing series of cityscape paintings display a unique viewpoint of urban life. Many of his own personal experiences of growing up in downtown Toronto are reflected in his work. Striving to portray the raw beauty in the people and places he paints, Dineen finds grace and delicacy within mundane imagery associated with the urban setting.

Jacques Oulé was born in the village of Soubise, France in 1960. He grew up in Aix en Provence and Paris, and relocated to Toronto in 1981 at the age of 21. Oulé's most recent work draws heavily on his fascination with time and the relationship between the individual and the collective. The trees and doors are two elements of a three-part photography series entitled "Á Perpétuité". They prove to be evidence of the human impulse to leave behind an imprint of our existence - to engrave, on surfaces of apparent permanence, the simple statement: "I exist."

Italy, Turin: April 8 - May 9, 2010: Strada facendo

STRADA FACENDO
Opening 8th of April 2010 h. 7.00 PM.
Strada Facendo is a collective exhibition of Street Art, its opening will take place the 8th of April 2010 at 7 P.M. in the place Spazio Barriera of Artegiovane in Via Crescentino 25 -Turin-, thanks to support of the City of Turin, the Region Piedmont and Circoscrizione 6.

The exhibition has supported by the expositive project "747" offered by Cripta 747 (Gallery Umberto I° int. 29) that will be opened Friday 9th of April at 6 P.M. and by the performative entitled "Re-writing", to its Fifth edition, realized by Amantes (Via Principe Amedeo 38) that will be opened Saturday 10th of April at 5 P.M.

Strada Facendo is an ambitious and courageous exhibition that wants to testify and not to represent, it wants to de-contestualize more than offer the proposal of an underground artistic tendency, born from the New York Graffiti movement of 1970's , that nowadays it expresses itself in different forms and disciplines.
For the event, young proposals and known artists will be involved to offer a complete overview, without judgements or arbitrary choices.

The show will be characterized by a multi-faced proposal in which social and civic analysis will be mixed with caricatural figures, logos and graphics, in order to alter and characterize the urban context.

The show will be characterized by a transversal analysis that unify artists known by the audience to local Italian artists, from the pioneers to the youngest artists, by showing a phenomenon through differen techniques: from the graffiti to the canvas, from the urban installation to the video and from the photography to the artistic performance.

The show will be also enriched by a selection of works of international artists offered by The Don Gallery of Milan and will be supported by a series of collateral initiatives. Within the proposals will be offered a debate in program for the 10th of April at 2.30 p.m. in the place Barriera, in which will be present collectors of the field  and artists that will debate on thematics linked to the Street Art movement and its market.

The project was born from an idea of Alvise Chevallard, the president of Artegiovane, with the support of the artists Gec and Br1 and it has been developed with the support of the curator Olivia Spatola and the critical texts by Francesco Poli.
EXHIBITION: Strada facendo

Galerie Espace29, 29 Rue Fernand Marin, 33000 Bordeaux ( entre la poste Mériadeck et la rue Judaîque )

Développant depuis plus de quinze ans un langage graphique urbain usant des codes du graffiti,(usage de l’aérosol, calligraphie, communication…), après avoir décoré de nombreux murs, Kendo, membre fondateur du collectif Peinture Fresh, approche les galeries en 2003 et y intègre une dimension plastique à l’aide de différents médiums.

Il profite des espaces clos pour explorer la tri-dimentionalité et crée un univers personnel par le biais de peintures et d’installations.

Avec ses formes généreuses, ses couleurs pétillantes et lumineuses,inspiré par les nuits brésiliennes, nourri de nombreux voyages à travers le monde et fasciné par l’esthétique des parures tribales, l ‘artiste nous transporte dans un carnaval psychédélique le jour et un univers incandescent quand vient la nuit.

Oubliant les lois physiques d’un monde réel, le public évolue alors dans un contexte où la poésie onirique de Kendo donne à voir les images de ses rêves les plus lointains.

Bulles,cercles, traits dynamiques, couleurs en ébullition, coulures, tags, et splashs s'enlacent dans un magma ou la vie prend naissance et nous ramène à un big bang pictural…

N’AP BOULE: A BENEFIT FOR THE PEOPLE OF HAITI 

After a successful live and silent auction, Anonymous Gallery and {he}ART 
For Haiti extend sale and exhibition through Sunday, March 28, 2010 

Gallery Hours: 12PM-6PM WEDNESDAY – SUNDAY 
Call For Appointment: 646.238.9069 

March 7-28 

On Sunday March 7, 2010, Anonymous Gallery @ Collective Hardware, SCOPE Art Show, {he}Art For Haiti and Prographix New York City joined forces to present N'AP BOULE: A BENEFIT FOR THE PEOPLE OF HAITI. Hosted by Joseph Henrikson, Andrew Lockhart, Raquel Cepeda, Sacha Jenkins, Henry and Kathleen Chalfant, Lisa Shimamura, and Christie's auctioneer Xan Serafin, the event proved to be a memorable and successful evening, raising tens of thousands of dollars—as of this press release, we are still tallying and will announce the final sum at closing—in financial support for the people of Haiti. All of the proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Haitian mission after the show's closing on March 28.

The benefit featured a live auction where pieces by Jose Parla, Eric Haze, Shepard Fairey, Barry McGee, SWOON, COPE2 and others were sold at or above their retail prices. Artists Erik Foss, Koralie, Henry Chalfant, CRASH, Kenzo Minami, ROSTARR, Lee Quiñones, and many others sold equally as well during our silent auction. Throughout the evening, legendary Deejays D-Nice, Prince Paul, DJ Soul and Treats donated their time to spin an eclectic mix of dance, old-school hip-hop, techno and soul music.

Prographix New York City donated their services—with a kind assist from American Apparel—producing commemorative T-shirts featuring original artworks by John CRASH Matos, Greg Lamarche, Ricky Powell, COPE2 and Indie184, Doze Green, Aaron SHARP Goodstone, FUTURA 2000 and Jose Parla. The limited edition T-shirts are being sold for $30US at the gallery: all proceeds will go to DWB/MSF. To view and purchase, please visit www.anonymoushop.com The exhibition itself—primarily curated by Anonymous Gallery, Sacha Jenkins and Raquel Cepeda—has particular historical significance. The N'AP BOULE exhibition is sequenced in chronological order, including artwork from some of the earliest graffiti "writers" starting with Philadelphia's Cornbread and New York's TAKI 183 (thanks to writing legend Cope 2) to visionaries like Lee Quiñones, John CRASH Matos and FUTURA 2000, to photographers Henry Chalfant and Ricky Powell--all of whom are pioneers of the bustling downtown Manhattan underground scene of the 1980s. The exhibit then continues its voyage through the ages via talents like Barry McGee and Shepard Fairey, who similarly were first known for their art on the streets in the early '90s before they became principals in the contemporary art world.

Due to increasing public demand for an opportunity to view the exhibition and purchase artworks that are still available, Anonymous Gallery and {he}ART For Haiti have agreed to continue the display until March 28th. For available artwork, please contact info@anonymousgallery.com

Anonymous Gallery and {he}ART For Haiti would like to thank the event's co-sponsors +LTD, and Heineken for their support. Another special thank you to guest speakers from the BSVAC (Bedford Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corp.) who were among the first responders in Haiti after the disaster.

Singapore: through March 21, 2010: Daze and local writers

New York and Singapore
Daze (NYC) and local writers

Is This Home, Truly? In conjunction with the exhibition of celebrated New York graffiti artist, Daze, Fortune Cookie Projects is delighted to announce the opening on 4 March of Is This Home, Truly? Curated by Zaki Razak, the exhibition presents the work of six urban artists from Singapore: Antz, Scopeone, Slacsatu, The Killer Gerbil, TR853-1 and Zero.

In the words of Zaki 'The Pioneers, Markers and Avant-Gardes of Singapore's 'Graffiti Art' are coming home to showcase artworks symbolizing respective peaks of their practice. The showcase not only chronicles representational pieces from the scene in Singapore from the early 90s till today, it also inaugurates their congregation in a 'confined' space - an environment that seems alienating yet longing.'

The Organisers
Fortune Cookie Projects, an international art advisory and curatorial firm with offices in Singapore and New York, has long been active in organising exhibitions of major artists throughout Asia. Mary Dinaburg and Howard Rutkowski, the principals of Fortune Cookie Projects, each have over thirty years experience in the international contemporary art market.

Projects featuring prominent artists such as Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz, Jorg Immendorff, A.R. Penck, Per Kirkeby Julian Schnabel and Markus Lupertz have been realized in Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Hong Kong and Manila. Most recently Fortune Cookie Projects curated the first comprehensive exhibition of paintings, photographs and video by William Wegman for Singapore, Seoul and Beijing.

Fortune Cookie Projects has also been instrumental in curating exhibitions and securing platforms for Asian artists at institutional and commercial venues throughout the United States and Europe.

Hip Hop Hieroglyphics is the name that we use to describe the art movement widely known as “Graffiti”.

This concept comes from the idea that the artists of today are carrying on the tradition of our ancient relatives. From the caves of the Caribbean to Europe and Africa; humans have expressed themselves in the same way. By leaving their mark, or as these artists say: “GETTIN’ UP”.

With that in mind we want to engage the public and allow them to hear the uncensored reality of the beginnings of this worldwide movement.
 Hip Hop Hieroglyphics will be a chance to interact with pioneering scribes of Hip Hop Culture.

London Miles Gallery is pleased to present the much anticipated solo exhibition by

ALEX YOUNG

A.K.A
Portraits of alter egos

London Miles Gallery is proud to present A.K.A, a solo exhibition of brand new work by London based artist, Alex Young. Traversing the boundaries of Fine Art, Illustration, and Graffiti, Alex Young's latest body of work investigates the social phenomena of 'alter-ego's', informed by the artist's own experiences as both a graffiti writer and purveyor of Fine Art.

Alex Young's finely detailed pointillist style portraits feature at the centre of A.K.A, deriving from a series of personal interviews with a range of pseudonymous characters, from burlesque dancers to heavy metal guitarists. His resultant monolithic portraits, whilst photorealistic from afar, on closer inspection offer a wealth of illustrative detail and subtle nuances, alluding to the subjects 'performed' identity. Adorning his portraits with multi-layered symbolism and imagery, Young elicits a multitude of narrative strands in these thought-provoking and complex paintings.

Rendered primarily in spray paint, Young's medium of choice points to years of dedication as a graffiti writer - an endeavour committed to alongside his time spent in formal art training. Compelled to highlight others who nurture such a dual-personality, and the social prejudices and stereotypes that necessitate this 'alter-ego' phenomena, A.K.A is an acutely sociological examination of the all too often bigoted and judgemental nature of collective social consciousness.

Opening reception:
Thursday, April 1st. 2010.
From 6pm to 10pm

Location: 47 Mowlem street. East London.

Alex Young will be in attendance.

The fashion show will feature custom painted denim and tees designed specifically for REVOLUTIONS. “Imagine a Mickey [Mouse] wearing Air Jordans, leaning on a Moët bottle crowned with a dukey rope chain around his neck, dripping in gold and saying your favorite songs hook.” This was the beginning. This is the future. This is classic hip-hop style. Welcome to the world of Shirt King Phade, one-third of the unrivaled founding fathers’ of cartoon and graffiti inspired airbrushed clothing, The Shirt Kings and member of the legendary TC-5 crew of NYC. Legendary for one of a kind, of-the-moment wearable works of art that adorned t-shirts, jeans, jackets -whatever you could think of – on the backs of everyone from LL Cool J, to Salt-n-Pepa, to Theo Huxtable in the early 80’s, Phade laid THE foundation for the street inspired urban revolution we now call ‘hip-hop fashion.’” - Citizen LA, 2009

Join Crewest for a once in a lifetime chance to see the artists, art and fashion from NYC’s premiere street crew all under one roof for the first time in Los Angeles.

Dare tribute and video

This made me cry. Thanks TWS and Love Letters.

Dare painted those trackside walls in Basel so often that they should name the station after him.

Dare.TWS RIP

Dare lost his battle with cancer early Sunday morning. He was taken suddenly from us and way too soon.

He will always be remembered as a wonderful person who was kind and generous. He influenced generations of writers worldwide with his graceful and inventive styles and his skillful use of color.

He was a thoughtful friend and a great man.

My heavy heart goes out to his friends and family. We are all shocked and saddened to lose Sigi.

Progress report

Sorry for the hiatus.

I'm still unable to update the site because of my work schedule, but I have high hopes for April.

In the meantime, please take another good look at what Stare is doing in Montreal.

Also, Buford is telling it like it is again.

Thank you for your patience.
