This weekend, the second edition of the “Public Provocations” graffiti art exhibition, which brings together A-list artist from around the globe, will open its doors at the Carhartt Gallery. 14 internationally well-known artists, including Delta, Mode2, Pisa73, Smash 137 and A1one, will present their interpretations of contemporary street art and graffiti.
Walls, backyards and contemporary city landscapes are hardly imaginable without all kinds of artistic forms of expression. Through colours, shapes and conversion artists claim the public space to be their sphere of expression and not only of provocation. Over the years new techniques, materials and platforms found their use. Thereby the art work was more and more respected and finally found its way into the galleries.
The exhibition boxes of the Carhartt Gallery show exceptional artists who have influenced or still influence the complexity of urban and street art with their styles. This unique compilation of national and international scripts and styles shows a varied profile of contemporary urban art. (press release)
I’m profoundly convinced that this graffiti art exhibition will be an amazing show and a great success. Unfortunately I have no time to travel to Weil am Rhein. If you will be a few steps from there, make sure to check out the show and send me some pics!
Opening: Saturday, June 12th, 7pm
Location: Carhartt Gallery, Weil am Rhein
