Post No Bills: Public Walls as Studio and Source
September 11 - December 23, 2016
 
Urban walls hold the history of a place. In our daily lives, we often pass them by unnoticed. For the artists in Post No Bills: Public Walls as Studio and Source, however, the beauty of decaying walls serves as an inspiration that informs their work. This multi-media group exhibition features seven international artists who explore a contemporary archaeological aesthetic, making art on urban walls in which the wall itself becomes an integral part of the work. They often search for a particular surface, location, or history that directly speaks to them, places where the interaction between individuals and materials accumulate to create new meaning. The exhibition examines the fluid history of walls that have been layered with paint, posters, and different narratives over time and considers the ways in which artists move between the studio and the street. Artists BLU (Senigallia, Italy), Mark Bradford (Los Angeles), Burhan Dogançay (Turkey), José Parlá (Miami), JR (Paris), Robin Rhode (Cape Town), Vhils a.k.a. Alexandre Farto (Portugal), and Jacque Villeglé (Paris) are each contributing to and capturing this unique and public narrative. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.
