Just saw this announcement on Eastern District’s website. Details are starting to emerge about PosterBoy‘s first ever solo show. If you don’t know PosterBoy, check our archives or his flickr.
In short, the show is called “AdBooster” and opens April 3rd at Eastern District in New York City. Be there or be square (unless of course, like me, you’ll be in a different country for the opening night. That’s forgivable).
From Eastern District:
PosterBoy “AdBooster” presented by PublicAdCampaign
April 3rd – May 3rd. Opening Reception 7-10pm Friday April 3rd 2009
43 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, NY
Street art and and vandalism have never been paired so eloquently as they are when PosterBoy gets out his razor. Through a simple act of civil disobedience, this work challenges our intense relationship with outdoor advertising in the city. It proposes new ways of interacting with your public environment and challenges notions of public and private space. Out of the work comes a dialogue which is sometimes political, sometimes humorous, and always a mind altering moment of communication between two people.
Over the past year PosterBoy has brought his intense critique of advertising and public space usage to the streets of New York City with prolific force. Eastern-District is proud to bring you his first solo exhibition, including a large scale installation by the artist as well as prints of his now famous subway installations.
