«Public Provocations» opens on June 11th 2011 at the Gallery. Already in its third iteration, this year’s exhibition presents a unique cross-section of current works in Urban Art. New curator Stefan Winterle and the Carhartt Gallery Team are showing big name artists, fresh talents, an interdisciplinary cornucopia of styles and formal approaches. Parallel to Art Basel the gallery presents artists that have set benchmarks and artists poised to do so in the near future. The 12 artists will be highlighted within their individually designed spaces, creating an exciting and never before seen collective dynamic befitting their creative spirit.
Urban Art lives through colors and its interpreters. «PUBLIC PROVOCATIONS III» shows works by living legends and young artists hailing from Russia, Europe, the United States and Latin America whose art styles range from stencils, acrylics, oil, writing and characters to architectural creations. The 12 individual artspaces of Carhartt Gallery offer ample room for all of them. El Mac (USA), Loomit (DE), Won ABC (DE), Aryz (ES) Scheme (RU), to name but a few, define styles that inspire others. The works on display suggest how a provocation can evolve – a means of expression and an art style with urban roots, both creative and authentic, that has found its way into museums. A lively and unique exhibition that can be experienced from June until October 2011 at the Carhartt Gallery.
