Vitality and Verve Hot Tea 1xRun

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.
