Showing: Futura – “Timewarp” @ Schusev State Museum of Architecture

Leonard McGurr, better known as Futura, recently opened a show at Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow, exactly 30 years since his first visit to the Soviet Union. Back in 1984, the artist was photographed breakdancing on Moscow’s Red Square, which was a symbolic act during tense Cold War times. Three decades later, Futura is back on the same spot, only few meters away when his Timewarp or ИЗГИБ ВРЕМЕНИ opened to the public on October 14th.

Heerlen experienced a strong hit to the economy since the closing of a coal mine back in the 60’s, and through programmes such as this one, it is slowly getting a new, positive and recognizable image. By bringing world class street art onto its facades and streets, […]

Upcoming: “Masterworks: Defining A New Narrative” @ Long Beach Museum of Art

Coming up at the end of the next month, the Long Beach Museum of Art will be hosting an interesting group exhibition where 14 accomplished artists are asked to contribute one large scale painting from their careers which they deem as being pivotal. Because of this premise, most of the work included, we would imagine, will be taken on loan from collectors. The list of participants includes Esao Andrews, Sean Cheetham, Natalia Fabia, Alex Gross, James Jean, Josh Keyes, Mario Martinez, Greg Simkins, Nicola Verlato, Eric […]
