It would be a torture to write down all the participating artist of this year’s issue of the Berlin-based Papergirl project. 238 different artist from all over the globe joined that alternative street art project, which was held the first time in 2006.
They ride their bikes, carrying rolls filled with collections of art, throwing them to lucky catchers on the street, in their cars, other bikers, people who might not normally be exposed to urban art. In addition a Papergirl USA project recently launched and new projects are sprouting up in over a dozen cities around the world. (coolhunting.com)
Papergirl’s basic idea is to bring art into the public space in a different way than usual. For that reason, the project includes an exhibition, an urban action (hand out the artworks), a bicycle workshop and a party. It’s a wide range the organizers have to cover, but in the fifth year everything should work fine.
The Papergirl 2010 exhibition will take place at Neurotitan Gallery in Berlin between July 4th and July 23rd. I will keep you informed.
