HUGE Inside and Out: “Magic City” Says Goodbye to Stockholm

HUGE Inside and Out: “Magic City” Says Goodbye to Stockholm

Magic City has a HUGE plan this weekend, the last great hurrah in Stockholm before it packs up and moves to the next city. Along with special programming and guests and late nights at the museum, Daniel Fahlström aka “Huge”, created a new signature helium balloon wall inside the space to mark the events.

A graffiti writer since age ten who grew up from north of the city, HUGE painted inside the exhibition as we all say goodbye to this wide-ranging educational, entertaining, and insightful take on a vast global graffiti and Street Art scene that continues to grow and change.

Luckily for us, BSA received some great tips about where to check out the local scene and even a tour yesterday with Street Artist Vegan Flava through some of the cuttier slices of the Stockholm margins – complete with mean barking junkyard dogs and really friendly scrap metal recyclers – AND we caught this HUGE piece in the wild, so to speak.

With both of these piece to post, it’s a perfect circuit of indoor/outdoor art practice to end this Magic City note on.

Live From Stockholm – “BSA Film Weekend” At Magic City: The Art Of Invention

Live From Stockholm – “BSA Film Weekend” At Magic City: The Art Of Invention

The “Magic City” touring exhibition of a cross section of Street Art and graffiti practitioners has hit Stockholm and we are excited to be there in just a few weeks to host a BSA Film Weekend. There are so many artists using their imagination and ingenuity to transform public space today and some are documenting it through film, bringing us all into the experience to share the magic and get some education along the way.


In addition to the regular film program curated by BSA that has been running through the Dresden, Munich, and Stockholm engagements of Magic City, we’ll be selecting special new examples of inventiveness that are part science, part D.I.Y., and all kinds of mind blowing for the HUGE MAGIC program.

When we’re not in front of the audience we’re really looking forward to touring the local street scene and meeting new friends and taking in some of the new exhibitions and workshops within “Magic City”, which has broken all kinds of records bringing a wide range of high quality works to enthusiastic audiences thanks to curators Carlo McCormick and Ethel Seno and the rest of the creative team Anni Nocenti, Rainer Verbizh, and Tobias Kunz – all under the direction and forward-thinking vision of director Christoph Scholz. It’s been a complete honor working with this amazing and talented team of visionaries and professionals. We’re also proud that our editor of photography and BSA co-founder Jaime Rojo is one of the artists featured in the exhibition alongside some of his peers and heroes. Rojo has selections of photos especially for kids throughout the show and a photo essay in the sculpture exhibition.

We look forward to meeting you this month in Sweden!
