‘Invisible College’ Exhibit Brings the Streets Indoors – 89.1 WBOI Press

Invisible College Podcast

89.1 WBOI in Indiana interviewed ‘Invisible College‘ co-curator Josef Zimmerman and artist Andrew Schoultz to discuss the upcoming exhibition at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. The three-minute segment touches on ‘new contemporary’ arts’ place in the traditional art world and how artists are developing outside white walls. Please visit WBOI website to listen to the full segment.

But a new exhibit at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art is blurring those lines – bringing traditional public and street art inside its walls.  “Invisible College” includes pieces from all over the world, and five original murals painted right inside the museum.

We’ve been in Indiana this week getting Invisible College up at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Co-curated by Andrew and Shawn Hosner of Los Angeles’ Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Invisible College offers a cross-section of some of the most exciting artists working in the New Contemporary genre. As it continues to evolve and expand, the movement embraces talent from all over the world and ushers in a new guard that seeks to increase the social and popular relevance of contemporary art. Below are process shots of a few of the mural installations coming from Andrew Schoultz, Cyrcle, Mark Dean Veca and Troy Lovegates.

Our friends over at 1xRun wrote an exceptional review of ‘Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape’. Discussing the impact Vitality and Verve will have on ‘the movement’ and the political messages within artists Saber and Meggs poignant and powerful pieces. Please visit the 1xRun website for the full write up.

Vitality and Vervecommunicated a significant global message on behalf of the contemporary public art movement.  The kicker, here, was that it granted the all-encompassing institutional recognition of the growing cultural impacts and accessibility of an art form that has gained world-wide momentum outside of these very institutional walls

Peak into ‘Invisible College’ exhibiting at Fort Wayne Museum of Art

The Fort Wayne Museum of Art will host Invisible College, a group exhibition co-curated by Andrew and Shawn Hosner of Los Angeles’ Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Opening July 11th and on view until September 27th, the exhibition will feature new and representative works by 46 artists belonging to the New Contemporary movement. Dedicated to the energy and strength of its growing visibility and recognition, Invisible College explores the aesthetics of a movement that has devised its own course; one that has been largely defined outside of institutional contexts.

Here is a taste of the artists heading to Indiana and their works in progress or detail shot of work.
