Willem Kerseboom Gallery
Amsterdam – Willem Kerseboom Gallery, in collaboration with the L.A. ART MACHINE, is proud to announce the opening of OP STRAAT, an exhibition of original artwork by legendary Los Angeles street artists, MEAR ONE, RETNA, and KOFIE.
This landmark exhibition marks the first time that these celebrated contemporary artists have exhibited together in Holland, bringing the unique and diverse visual language of California street art to Northern Europe.
Since the rise of urban art in the U.S. in the 1970’s, California artists have been at the vanguard of a new visual language that both defines and describes the contemporary urban experience and the environs of the West Coast metropolis.
All self-taught, these three artists elevate the subversive arts from the streets to established fine art venues, further challenging gallery and museum paradigms and establishing a new artistic vocabulary that is fresh, compelling, and unpredictable.
Op Straat, opens at Willem Kerseboom Gallery on October 16, 2010 and runs through November 13, 2010. Please join us for this exciting moment in contemporary art history.
Includes a special viewing of the monumental murals created during the Vox Humana live art installation at VOLTA 6 in Basel 2010, as featured on the Huffington Post, Juxtapoz, and Arrested Motion.
Opening: October 16, 2010 4-6 PM.
