FOUR DECADES OF GRAFFITI AND STREET ART INSTALLED IN ONE ROOM!
EXHIBITION RUNS FROM MAY 20TH – 31TH 2016
OPENING MAY 20TH 2016, 7 PM
This is how four decades of graffiti and street art can be experienced in Berlin for the first time: the photo exhibition features iconic images of painted subway trains in New York City from the 1980s right through to contemporary wall paintings from around the world. It is a fascinating journey through time that traces the development of this key art form of the 21st century.
Cooper discovered the graffiti scene rather by accident while taking photos of children playing in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Today her work is acknowledged all over the world and has made an important contribution to the discovery of urban art and its development from a cultural history perspective worldwide.
In honour of the street art icon, Montana Cans has produced a unique triptych in the form of three spray cans featuring one of her most famous works. What’s more, an unforgettable moment lies in store: Martha Cooper will be there in person on the opening evening to sign her special edition. Montana Cans is donating a set to the URBAN NATION collection, thereby ensuring that the artefact will be preserved for all future fans of street art.
It was awesome! Thank you to all!
