That was the vernissage of Project M/13 “The Monster Project”
On August 17th the monsters entered the production office of the URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART in Bülowstrasse 97, where the young artists finally met the bigger ones to gaze the result of Project M/13 “The Monster Project”, which was initiated and curated by URBAN NATION director Yasha Young and Katie Johnson, founder of “The Monster Project”, together with numerous visitors.
A few weeks earlier, Yasha and Katie invited over 74 children aged between five and twelve years from 17 different Berlin institutions to give young artists the opportunity to let their imagination run wild and to paint gruesome, funny and sweet monsters. Over 50 of these works were then interpreted by national and international artists in their very own style. At the opening of the exhibition it finally happened – the really fascinating works of art of the children and artists were unveiled and presented in a convivial atmosphere.
The highlight: visitors and all interested parties are not only allowed to take a look, but can also purchase their personal favourite works of the “grown up” artists as high-quality prints or, in some cases, as originals. This can be done directly on site or online on the website of “The Monster Project”. The entire revenues will go to the continuing work of “The Monster Project” and the Berliner Herz Children’s Hospice.
The exhibition runs until September 30th. An absolute recommendation! Admission is free of charge.
