Some great teaser shots of the first big show of ’09 over at Arrested Motion.
“From the Street of Brooklyn” opens January 9th at LA’s Thinkspace gallery. The show is curated by Brooklyn’s Ad Hoc Art. Vandalog’s Q&A with Ad Hoc Art’s Director, Andrew Michael Ford, can be found here. They’ve gotten some of New York’s best and most prolific street and graffiti artists together for one large group show. Looking at the artist lineup, it seems like the only way this show could bring Brooklyn to LA any better would be to transplant a street.
When art fans in New York are looking for cutting edge art, they need look no further than Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn. Ad Hoc Art shows some of the best new street art and “low brow” art for not too much money. Their upcoming show, The Brooklyn Block Party, has work from 11 lino-block cutting artists including Swoon, Imminent Disaster, Elbowtoe, Judith Supine, and Gaia, and their new project room has upcoming shows from some of my favorite artists, C215 and Know Hope.
Ad Hoc Art is also the home of Peripheral Media Projects, probably two the most anti-authoritarian street artists working today.
