Sean Corcoran and DAZE, CRASH, LADY PINK, FUTURA, and LEE : 15 For 2015

15-for-2015-E

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Sean Corcoran is Curator of Prints and Photographs – a title that really undersells the cultural contribution and genius this guy brings to the Museum of the City of New York. In the last two years alone he has been responsible for important exhibitions that secure the legacy of early hip hop culture, graffiti, and their foundational relationship to the modern global Street Art scene. Witness: City As Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection, Hip-Hop Revolution: Photographs by Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo, and Martha Cooper, and the current Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse.

I took this photograph on May 22, 2015, just as the Coney Art Walls project was really just getting underway. Many of the artists were early in the process of painting their murals.

While I admire some of the Street Art today, my area of interest and research has always been for the train era graffiti writing, and to be there when this amazing contingent of artists got together – DAZE, CRASH, LADY PINK, FUTURA, and LEE – there seemed to be an electricity in the air. Complaints about the real estate developer who sponsored the project aside, the project combined several of my passions – Coney Island in the summer, great art and good food.

Rafael Schacter and Filippo Minelli : 15 for 2015

Rafael Schacter and Filippo Minelli : 15 for 2015

15-for-2015-D

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Rafael Schacter is an anthropologist, curator, and the author of The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti and Order and Ornament: Graffiti, Street Art and the Parergon. He is also a researcher of graffiti and Street Art in the Department of Anthropology, University College London and is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow 2014-2017 also at University College London. Among other topics discussed at lectures and conferences around the world Dr. Schacter argues that graffiti and Street Art produce “insurgent images” that should be seen to reface, rather than deface, the city.

Photograph by Rafa Suñen

This image, by the photographer Rafa Suñen, is taken from an action by the artist Filippo Minelli entitled ‘Bold Statements’. It was performed on the Somerset House River Terrace on January 23, 2015, as part of the Mapping the City exhibition which I curated for Approved by Pablo.

I picked this image because it was an amazing start to the year for me, at once the most stressful and the most exciting project I have ever been a part of. Whilst I was immensely proud of the exhibition and what we as a team accomplished, the cultural programme and ephemeral actions we organised alongside the exhibit itself were the things I personally enjoyed the most.

brooklyn-street-art-Rafa-Sunen-Filippo-Minelli-15-from-2015-web

Filippo’s performance was a beautiful moment that I will always remember. A perfect London winter’s day, a magical, ephemeral moment in which a group of people – a group from different backgrounds, different ages, different places – all  came together to take part in something equally personal as political. Something equally absurd as affective. Something capturing everything I love about public art in one condensed instant.

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Nika Kramer is a photographer, writer, street scene documentarian, Hip Hop activist, and event organizer from Berlin. With astoundingly beautiful photography Kramer has captured the action, camaraderie and atmospheric qualities of art on the streets globabally. Similarly, Kramer is a pre-eminent documenter of the global Bgirl and Bboy scene and the co-author of We B*Girlz with Martha Cooper, editor of Hip Hop Files: Photographs 1979-1984, co-producer/director of the documentary short Redder than Red – The Story of B-Girl Bubbles and the organizer of the annual We B-Girlz Festival in Berlin.

Photograph by Nika Kramer

Cuba was my most important trip this year though. 2 months!  So I decided on the picture of this kid in the street, playing baseball. I love the lighting on this one and it represents how I feel this whole year, ready to hit it – ready to go. Feeling my career is going in the right direction, just not really taking off. Having lots of fun, but not really making enough money yet, feeling I need to put all my energy into it to really make it fly…

brooklyn-street-art-nika-kramer-cuba-15-from-2015-web

I like Cuba, life happens on the streets. Kids are playing outside with toys that are mostly handmade – check out the bat, I doubt it’s store bought.

People bring their work out into the street, they sit outside and chat, they bring out tables and play board games. I fear with the arrival of the internet, that’s all going to change very soon…

Jessica Goldman Srebnick and Artists of Wynwood Walls : 15 For 2015

15-for-2015-B

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know.

It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Jessica Goldman Srebnick is CEO of Goldman Properties, the real estate development company that began the mural art project Wynwood Walls in a neglected neighborhood of Miami under the direction of her father Tony. By bringing invited international Street Artists to paint walls of the primarily one-story Wynwood, Goldman considers mural art a crucial revitalizing force that can transforms neighborhoods. As part of the annual Art Basel craziness every December, Jessica and her team host an ever growing and changing series of events and walls – along with Street Artists, fans, and collectors.

Photograph by Martha Cooper

This image to me symbolizes the evolution of the Wynwood Walls family of artists. It represents love, respect, talent and diversity. The Wynwood Walls began as an idea 6 years ago and today is recognized as one of the most important and influential destinations for street art in the world. Captured by the extraordinary Martha Cooper, the photo and the evening were epic.

I love this image, not only because I didn’t fuck it up and it’s actually a cool shot, but because of what it represents. The 1xRUN guys brought me over to Detroit in September for their Murals in the Market festival, which embodied everything good about art for me right now – travel, meeting awesome new people, sharing stories, making new ones and creating an amazing international community. In these times of war, love, peace and understanding are the things that will bring us all together.

Priscilla Frank is the Arts & Culture Editor of the Huffington Post. A student of Rhetoric at Berkley, and now based in Los Angeles, she favors Art Brut, feminist art, comic art and folk art. Some entertaining posts by Ms. Frank in 2015 include  Pussy Riot’s Maria Alyokhina On Her Plans For A Women’s-Only Museum , Stereoscopic Nudes Are The Sexy GIFs Of The 19th Century, Artist Lip-Syncs Entire GOP Debate While Dressed As A Clown, and ‘World’s Greatest Cat Painting’ Sells For $826,000. As hilariously engaging as those sound, most germane to BSA readers might be her 10 Women Artists Who Are Better Than Banksy.

This is an outdoor view of The Bunny Museum located in the private home of Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski. The couple, who call each other “honey bunny” as a term of endearment, have given each other a bunny-centric gift every day for quite a while now. They now have over 32,000.

brooklyn-street-art-priscilla-frank-Micah-Hauser-pasadena-la-12-2015-web

I visited the museum in the midst of the Marie Kondo frenzy, when I felt a paralyzing pressure to clean up and grow up in more ways than just home tidying. When I saw the surreal gaggle of stuffed bunnies smushed against the suburban home’s window panes, it was as reassuring as cuddling up with a long lost stuffed animal.

I turned to my boyfriend and said “I’m not Kondoing.” This might have been a key liberating moment in my life, or perhaps a damning one, I guess it remains to be seen. For now I’m content to embrace the chaos, the clutter, all the bunnies.

Yasha Young and Herakut : 15 for 2015

Yasha Young and Herakut : 15 for 2015

15-for-2015-E

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Yasha Young is the director and curator of Berlin’s Urban Nation, the first museum worldwide that will exclusively collect and exhibit contemporary graffiti and street art. She also is the director of UN’s sub-project named Project M, bringing 100 or so artists to the UN and Berlin streets in just the last couple of years. A former gallery director for 15 years focusing on LowBrow and Urban Contemporary Art, Young has curated, produced and been an enthusiastic catalyst and visionary for countless collaborative art initiatives in the public sphere; this year included projects in Berlin, Iceland, Rochester (NY), Hawaii, and Miami.

“Wenn ich wüsste das die Welt morgen untergeht würde ich heute einen Apfelbaum pflanzen”

(translated) “If I knew that the world would end tomorrow I would plant an apple tree today” ~ Martin Luther 1483 – 1546

I would like to dedicate my image choice to Herakut and this particular piece. To me this is about hope and the belief that there is always more good left on this planet than the incredible evil and hardship we see around us every day no matter where in the world.

brooklyn-street-art-Aurelio-Schrey-one-wall-berlin-2015-web

Hope is the foundation of change. It is universal and knows no restriction, no prejudice. Hope is what we need across the world at the moment and what we can give and spread at no cost and abundance – just like love.

This mural, with the Martin Luther quote written in several different languages, unites the thought of hope and the possibility of change via generations to come across the globe even in the face of a world on fire and displaced cultures  hope remains always.

This has been a year filled with art, travel, good company and food for me, catching up with old friends across the globe and meeting new ones. It has also been a year filled with ad takeovers.

Through our friend Vermibus we first met New York artist Jordan Seiler in Berlin on a trip that coincided with the opening of Open Walls Berlin, a new gallery space where the two artists had a joint exhibition together. I was invited to accompany them both to capture them hitting up the bus shelters in the neighbourhood, removing the advertising and replacing the posters with their art.

A month later I joined Vermibus again to document his month long ‘Unveiling Beauty’ project which saw him travelling to New York, London, Milan and Paris, installing works in each city. My documenting of ad busters continued last month with Jordan Seiler visiting London and installing a number of works across the city including this piece in East London.

Evan Pricco is the Editor-In-Chief and Web Editor of the leading international contemporary art magazine Juxtapoz, based in San Francisco. Now shooting straight out of Sausalito, Evan found that part of his job this year entailed traveling to Street Art festivals and art fairs, doing studio visits, interviewing people like Banksy and Takashi Murakami, and being a desk clerk at a Times Square newsstand that sold limited edition prints and books by artists – and of course inviting graffiti writers to tag it – while police chased after painted ladies and groping Cookie Monsters.

It’s sort of an obvious pick, but I knew the moment I walked up on this installation/game/project at Dismaland that Banksy had really created something significant. It’s fitting of the world we live in right now, and months later, the way that many Americans and Grand Old Party have positioned themselves in regards to the refugee crisis.

And so you have these boats that float around a pool where you can drive them around for a few pence, with absolutely no goal in mind or place to land. All just an inevitable shit storm.

Katherine Brooks is the Senior Arts & Culture Editor at the Huffington Post flagship in New York and is insatiably curious about daily developments inside and outside the art world. This inquisitive mind helps her to countenance diverse topics that fly across her desk with regularity from Burning Man to Bansky to Guerilla Girls to the New Whitney, Kim Gordan, Peaches and of course, Cats Taking Over Famous Western Artworks. One of our favorite pieces by Brooks this year is an extensive examination of gender and the fossilized academic and institutional thinking patterns that keep women marginalized in the art world in 2015 called Let’s Talk About ‘Women Artists’ And What This Term Means.

Not only did I feel captivated by the image painted on the side of this East Harlem building, I was struck by the way Jaime framed this photograph. The young man and kids in the mural peer up and over a seemingly endless landscape, while the boys playing basketball — highlighted in the foreground — appear protected by the art.

It’s always interesting to see the context within which a mural is constructed. This particular meeting of art and athletics seems to echo a greater aspect of public art: a desire to capture attention in unexpected places.

Butterfly is the editor and founder of the French Street Art site called ButterflyArtNews and she is also an occasional contributor of photographs and observations on BSA. A voracious documenter of the Street Art scene around the world whose work has been published in books, magazines, and blogs, this year Butterfly co-curated a London show with two French artists, 100Taur and Hisham Echafaki. A highlight for 2015 was her comprehensive and personal coverage of Banksy’s Dismaland on her site, on BSA, and in a 30 minute documentary with Lars Pederson for the French / German TV Channel ARTE

I selected this picture because of the unlikely collaboration between the two worlds  religion and street art and they share a message of open mindedness and peace and it also recognizes street art as being as sacred as other art movements throughout history.

What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Sharon Matt Atkins is Vice Director, Exhibitions and Collections Management at the Brooklyn Museum and has been responsible for organizing some amazing Street Art related shows in the last few years that brought the work of Street Artists to throngs of museum audiences. Matt Atkins organized the richly engaging FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds this summer and the Stephen Powers: Coney Island Is Still Dreamland (To a Seagull) installation currently on display. These two exhibitions with deep roots in graffiti and Street Art followed on the 2014 heralded successes of Dr. Atkins, who also organized Swoon: Submerged Motherlands and the Brooklyn presentation of Ai Weiwei: According to What?

My pick for 2015 has to be FAILE-related! I had the great pleasure working with them on their Brooklyn Museum exhibition, FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds, which was on view July 10th – October 4th (big thanks to BSA for making the introduction years ago!).

FAILE’s exhibition featured their Temple along with their collaboration with BÄST, The FAILE and BÄST Deluxx Fluxx Arcade. They also created new paintings and sculptures for the exhibition. As if this wasn’t enough to keep them busy, they also worked with Times Square Arts on Wishing on You, a monumental, hand-carved, painted, and interactive prayer wheel situated in the heart of Times Square.

On view to coincide with the Brooklyn Museum exhibition, this project created the perfect synergy between their indoor installations and their ongoing commitment to creating surprising and captivating experiences in our urban environment.
