As I wrote some days ago, the city of the German small town Lueneburg gets redesigned and will be transformed into a public exhibition space for leading figures of the international urban art scene – The press release is out now:
More than 35 internationally renowned street artists have been invited to the Leuphana urban art project, including Akim, Victor Ash, Ben Eine, Brad Downey, Boxi, Bronco, Dave the Chimp, D*face, DTAGNO, Faith47, Flying Förtress, Herakut, Loomit, DAIM, Moki, 1010, Mode2, Swoon, Tilt, Tryone, Zevs, 56K ans many more!
“The artists invited to participate on this project come from a diverse mixture of nationalities and contemporary art backgrounds. They will reshape the appearance of Lueneburg’s historic township using: murals, classic graffiti writing, cut-outs, sculptures, installation art and performance art.
The incorporation of this wide selection of urban art forms as well as their unique technical and contextual application in the historical center of Lueneburg have already begun to make it clear that this project will be a landmark event in the development and presentation of contemporary urban art. The artists participating in this event are leaders of their genre, a new generation of emerging creative producers.
Their highly refined and precisely contextualized work is an indication of the future aesthetics of contemporary public art. Without loosing their deep connection to urban culture and the public sphere, these artists have already begun to assume representation in leading museums and galleries worldwide.”
I’ll keep you posted!
