Hello October ! It’s the first official day and Nuart 2011 is in progress. The streets of Stavanger have been sunny, with people out checking out the action by Street Artists from Europe and the US on walls all over the city in summer-like conditions.  There is an indoor contingent happening too, as well as the debut of “Vigilante Vigilante” (trailer at end) and a panel discussion with downtown New York’s own Carlo McCormick and Street Artists Herbert Baglioni and Escif.

Here are a few exclusive pics from Mooki to give you a peek at the scene.

Check out the trailer for “Vigilante Vigilante”, which had it’s European premiere at Nuart  last night and which is showing tonight and tomorrow at 16oo hrs. It’s a supercharged wending path and story profiling personalities, behaviors, and agendas of intersecting players on the street. In the process it exposes grey areas and overlapping interests, all of which can be simultaneously uncomfortable and riveting.

“Bring to Light” in Greenpoint Brooklyn for the 2nd Year – Saturday Night!

“All manner of projectors blasted on the walls with myriad images, forms, and shapes, some breathtakingly beautiful. Other artists created sculptures and installations that worked as light vessels and amorphous creatures while collaborative dancers entertained groupings of appreciative observers.” from BSA’s review on Huffington Post

Bring to Light Nuit Blanche New York 2010 (photo © Jaime Rojo)

OCTOBER 1ST, 2011, Greenpoint, Brooklyn New York. 6:00 pm to Midnight.

Bring to Light is a free nighttime public festival of art in New York City that takes place simultaneously with “nuit blanche” events in cities around the world. Inviting emerging and established artists to make site-specific installations of light, sound, performance and projection art, the event creates an immersive spectacle for thousands of visitors to re-imagine public space and civic life. Bring to Light will transform streets, parks and the industrial waterfront of Greenpoint, Brooklyn set against dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline.

Nuit Blanche (French for “white night” or “all-nighter”) is a global network of locally-organized nighttime contemporary art events. Originating in Paris in 2001, the nuit blanche concept now involves millions of people in cities around the world.

One performance we will NOT miss will be Chris Jordan and Josh Goldberg, who have serious chops in public projection work, presenting CHRONO GIANTS.

THE NEW YORK ART BOOK FAIR AT MoMA PS1

Brooklyn-street-art-WEB-the-new-york-art-book-fair

This art book fair always rewards you – just walking around the floorplan of MoMA PS1 is a trip and the books are tripped out. This year we are in a new one – The Pantheon Catalog from Joyce Manalo and Daniel Feral;

“The street has always been the thumping beat that pumps the pulsing lifeblood through creative New York. Yes, there is a lot of action behind the walls in the offices and galleries and studios and stages and clubs and boardrooms, but everyone knows it is the kinetic electricity of life on the street that inspires New Yorkers to dig deeper and dream bigger and play hard.”

~ from the essay Street Art New York, The 2000s, Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo of Brooklyn Street Art.

If that is not enough to make you absolutely plow down crowds to get there, consider the real talents who are going to be there to SIGN YOUR COPY:

***Catalog Signing on Sunday, October 2nd, 3-3:45 PM featuring***

Street Art and Capitalism: Nuart and Norwegian Economists


“When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss Art. When artists get together for dinner, they discuss money.” ~Oscar Wilde

NUART V. NORWEGIAN SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS

Nuart is working on an interesting project featuring some of the worlds leading street artists on the walls of NHH from July through September, including an international seminar on street art and capitalism on September 6 with Tristan Manco, Evan Roth (G.R.L) and some of the countries leading economists.  Set to be launched by the King of Norway, it is the official art project for NHH’s 75th Anniversary.

How do you spell “food”, “rent”, “medical care”, “education”, “infrastructure”, “sanitation”, “housing”, and other crucial questions through the scope of capitalism? A collage of work by Ben Eine (image © courtesy of Nuart)

What happens when economics and Street Art intersect? Insert answer here ___________________.

What happens if you mash an elite academic institution like the Norwegian School of Economics with an art scene that has anti-authoritative counter-cultural art roots?

Norway’s giant Street Art festival NUART is helping to host the official art event for the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH)  in the City of Bergen the NHH with an ambitious schedule of events to celebrating such a momentous jubilee. Stay tuned to see which Street Artists will be getting up on the storied walls of the the NHH this summer.

The Project is called:

(_____________) Capitalism ?

Reed Projects Presents: “Outside In” (Stavanger, Norway)

Reed Projects
brooklyn-street-art-outside-in-reed-projects-nuart-1brooklyn-street-art-outside-in-reed-projects-nuart-2Following the acclaimed and ongoing international success
story of Stavanger’s Nuart Festival as well as last years
“Lowlife” exhibition at Stavanger Kunstforening, Reed
Projects is set to consolidate the regions rising reputation for
providing a home for this, the 21st Centuries most dynamic
artform by unleashing a brand new show dedicated to Street
and Urban Art.
Spread across 220m2 of space, Skur 2, a beautifully
converted Victorian warehouse on the city harbour front will
house works from over 30 of the worlds leading urban artists
including Scandinavia’s largest collection of Banksy works
alongside new and exclusive pieces from Norway’s Dolk.
Part museum show, part contemporary art exhibition
and part urban art boutique, Outside In is nothing if not
ambitious, the show will present the myriad of ways in which
Street Artists explore and tackle a multitude of techniques,
both old and new. Drawings, watercolours, etchings, oil
paintings, acrylics, lithographs, screen prints, photography,
film and much more will all be on show.
Outside In aims to question and challenge the perception
that Street Art is primarily concerned with graffiti and the
spray can. A good selling point for gallerists and lifestyle
media as well its detractors, but as Outside In aims to show,
far from reality.
Outside In shows urban artists who are equally at home
tackling antiquated etching techniques, watercolours,
drawing and oil painting as they are with a spraycan and
marker. As likely to be found hunched over a litho stone
as they are scaling trackside fences, “Street” artists have,
over the years, explored and mastered crafts not popular in
contemporary fine art practice for generations.
Outside In is set to be the countries first major group
exhibition (outside of Nuart) dedicated to the most dynamic
and democratic art movement of the 21st Century.
Outside In opens on July 01st and runs until Aug 07
