The second edition will be on display from June till October 2010. Famous protagonists of the graffiti and urban art scene meet in Weil am Rhein simultaneously to the international art fair ART BASEL. This unique compilation of urban art with its extraordinary diversity of styles and shapes will continue the curatorial work of Sigi von Koeding I Dare.
Walls, backyards and contemporary city landscapes are hardly imaginable without all kinds of artistic forms of expression. Through colours, shapes and conversion artists claim the public space to be their sphere of expression and not only of provocation. Over the years new techniques, materials and platforms found their use. Thereby the art work was more and more respected and finally found its way into the galleries. The exhibition boxes of the Carhartt Gallery show exceptional artists who have influenced or still influence the complexity of urban and street art with their styles. This unique compilation of national and international scripts and styles shows a varied profile of contemporary urban art.
