BSA Special Feature: Shepard Fairey: Natural Springs.
Jersey City hosted Shepard Fairey a couple of weeks ago at MANA Contemporary and naturally he chose this huge wall with a high profile to host his image entitled Natural Springs. If you are going to do a subtle lambasting of the oil economy where better than a location visible to the millions of drivers traveling between Jersey City and Manhattan via the Holland Tunnel.
West One: Future Communication
This promo for a show with West One without words calls for the rise of a third way (or fourth or fifth) that draws connection to graffiti of our earliest days of mark-making and movements of today employing symbol, shape, line to communicate in a monochromatic mode.
Monica Canilao: Alchemy. Detroit
As Detroit is settled by the artists you see the movement here from other cities has reached the former Motor City in this group show featuring the spirit of D.I.Y and re-imagining our empty neglected spaces as stages for aesthetic creation. This long video advertises an upcoming group show with Monica Canilao at the center describing a vision of alchemy.
Herakut in Rome by Blindeye Factory
Promoting their gallery show in Rome the german duo Herakut created this wall in Tor Pignattare forte STREET HEART PROJECT, curated by Marta Gargiulo, Massimo Scrocca and Marco Gallotta.
“In our moment of need we rely on the family of humans. I wished we could remember these family bonds in our moments strength”
“Nei nostri momenti di bisogno ci affidiamo alle persone come famiglia, sarebbe bello se potessimo ricordarci di questi legami anche nei momenti di forza”. Herakut.
