“Jamel Shabazz” A Film by Charlie Ahearn at BAM (Brooklyn, NY)

Jamel Shabazz

In the infancy of hip-hop, Brooklyn-born photographer Jamel Shabazz documented the pioneers of music and style who would launch an enduring worldwide phenomenon. Charlie Ahearn, the director of the seminal grafitti movie Wild Style, pays tribute to both Shabazz and those who defined hip-hop before it had definition. More than just vintage shots of kids rocking Puma Suedes, Kangols, and pin-striped Jordaches in Times Square and Fort Greene Park, Shabazz’s photographs have hundreds of (oftentimes tragic) stories behind them, and Ahearn’s Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer gives voice to these images with dozens of interviews with Shabazz himself, graffiti pioneer and hip-hop historian Fred “Fab 5 Freddy” Brathwaite, legendary rapper KRS-One, and more. This vibrant portrait of the early years of hip-hop had its world premiere at BAMcinemaFest 2011

Lazarides Gallery Presents: Know Hope “The Abstract and The Very Real” (London, UK)

Know Hope

2nd August 2013 – 29th August 2013

This August, Tel Aviv-based artist Know Hope makes his solo debut at Lazarides Rathbone with a new exhibition, The Abstract and The Very Real.

Addressing the human condition and its collective social existence through a series of unique works and a site-specific installation, the exhibition questions the ubiquitous notion of the ‘”abstract and the very real”, the weight and burden of which though universally apparent is often unidentifiable to most.

Appropriating found objects, vintage frames and old papers, Know Hope will fill the exhibition with assemblages that visually embody abstract concepts of memory and temporality. Reclaimed materials will come together breaking free from the confines of canvas or frame, his archetypal character crawling from one to the next with the frames representing the empty spaces in our lives and our undying struggle to fill them.

Known Gallery Presents: “Mind in Transit” New Works by CEPT and THANK YOU X (Los Angeles, CA)

Known Gallery
Known Gallery is proud to present MIND IN TRANSIT, an exhibit of new solo work by London born graffiti artist/painter CEPT and Los Angeles native street artist/painter THANK YOU X. In the project room, world famous graffiti artist REMIO will exhibit a new series of canvas paintings.

This is first U.S. exhibit for British artist CEPT. A legend of the London graffiti scene since his youth, over the last 20 years CEPT has expanded to mural painting, collage artwork and incredible immersive large-scale multimedia installations. His artwork has exhibited all over the globe and this new series is the beginning of the next evolution in his gallery work, incorporating figurative elements and art history into abstract painting. Very inspired by the arrangement and collation of sampled music, CEPT paints the way he listens to music, allowing the variety and remixing of sounds to open him up to constructing something new. His paintings combine rich colors and romantic images of yesterday with slick pop iconography of today. Mixing the old and the new influences the visual worlds of his art, a future primitive.

THANK YOU X became well known on the streets of Los Angeles a few years ago, largely in part to his large Warhol wheat paste. Signing THANK YOU X underneath in a gesture of anonymous gratitude for Warhol’s aesthetic of rebellious integrity, the name accidentally became the artist’s identity. Still very inspired by the pop tropes and bright colors of that NYC art scene, THANK YOU X will show new large-scale paintings featuring the canon of iconic imagery he respects. A dark background with pastel and near-fluorescent color combination, topped with a thick resin surface creates the slick glossy pop paintings that THANK YOU X both enjoys himself and continues to involve in his personal visual narrative.
