Library of Arts

Showing the importance and growth of the Italian street art movement is crucial for understanding the transition it suffered. Standing at the border of art, these forms pushed the limits and dealt with the constant questioning of their legitimacy. Graffiti writing and street art also played with geographic frontiers, and with the arrival of the Internet created a space for debates between artists on a global scale. The “Crossboarding: An Italian Paper History of Graffiti Writing and Street Art” exhibition opens September 16 and lasts until October 2, at Library of Arts in Paris.

U

Group Show

Opening: September 19

The Unit

theunitldn.com

An event that marks The Unit London’s 1-year anniversary which will introduce some of the most exciting and accomplished contemporary artists in the world today, presents an amazing ensemble of true guides through the exploration of the state of human identity in the digital age – Ivan Alifan, Mark Demsteader, Ryan Hewett, SNIK, Henrik Uldalen and Jake Wood-Evans. These artists will not show work representing a series of traditional portraits, but rather, in the words of Co-Director Joe Kennedy, a deeply psychological insight into the very contemporary notion of fractured and digitised identity. Perhaps, this was not a story of searching for a “fixed” identity or even stitching the torn fabric of oneself, but rather a story of facing the possibility that there might not be a meaning to oneself’s identity at all… Only one thing remains – to wait and then look into the mirror of the contemporary self.
