The international urban art exhibition ESCAPE 2010 – Escape the Golden Cage
presents artists who have never before been seen in such an extensive exhibition
and will first open its doors in October 2010. Enthralling national and international
artists were invited to the exhibition in order to display and communicate the current
positions of urban art. Above all, the intrinsic references to space and urban settings
as well as comic, pop and street art are the main focus of the show.
Today, street art and graffiti no longer exclusively show up in the fabric of the
public, urban space, but also appear in the interior space of museums and galleries.
The spontaneity and guerrilla attitude of the (often illegal) work in outside spaces
transfers to the works for the white cube, thereby lending to an internal tension and
urgency, that “established art” sometimes lacks. Street artists and graffiti sprayers
thus break out of the art framework and bring their aesthetic and expressiveness to a
new and exciting level by means of modified media which also inspires Artists whose
origin is not found in this subculture.
ESCAPE 2010 exhibits the young art genre of urban art, which encompasses
the positions of street artists, graffiti sprayers and artists who are inspired by these
Anton Unai, Christian Eisenberger, Faith47, Jaybo aka Monk, Marco Pho Grassi,
Markus Oberndorfer, Nomad, Paul Busk, Perfektworld, Scott Malcolm Wigglesworth,
