Public Provocation 2011
The Carhartt Gallery is open for the 3rd round of Public Provocations. Thanks to a good organization, the support of the partners, the artists and the curator Stefan Winterle the show went down greatly that june night. Since June 11th 2011 the show founded by Sigi “Dare” von Koeding (R.I.P.) is in its third iteration, this year’s exhibition presents a unique cross-section of current works in Urban Art. The PP Team are showing big name artists, fresh talents, an interdisciplinary cornucopia of styles and formal approaches. Parallel to Art Basel the gallery presents artists that have set benchmarks and artists poised to do so in the near future. The 12 artists will be highlighted within their individually designed spaces, creating an exciting and never before seen collective dynamic befitting their creative spirit. Have a look at the photos of the preparation and the artworks after the jump!
Urban Art lives through colors and its interpreters. «PUBLIC PROVOCATIONS III» shows works by living legends and young artists hailing from Russia, Europe, the United States and Latin America whose art styles range from stencils, acrylics, oil, writing and characters to architectural creations. The 12 individual artspaces of Carhartt Gallery offer ample room for all of them. El Mac (USA), Loomit (DE), Won ABC (DE), Aryz (ES) Scheme (RU), to name but a few, define styles that inspire others. The works on display suggest how a provocation can evolve – a means of expression and an art style with urban roots, both creative and authentic, that has found its way into museums. A lively and unique exhibition that can be experienced from June until October 2011 at the Carhartt Gallery.
