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.
