Das Schneiden von Stencils (Schablonen) ist eine der bekanntesten künstlerischen Techniken der Street Art. Ursprünglich als technisches Hilfsmittel zur schnellen und seriellen Verbreitung politischer Botschaften im öffentlichen Raum entwickelt, haben sich Schablonen Graffiti zu einem völlig eigenständigen Kunstgenre entwickelt, welches die Street Art prägt wie kein anderes.

Mit CUT OUT versammeln die beiden Kuratoren Felix Rau (eins92) und Rudolf David Klöckner (urbanshit) 18 der derzeit interessantesten europäischen Stencilkünstler in einer Ausstellung. Mit jeweils genau einem Werk pro Künstler spiegelt die international besetzte Gruppenausstellung nicht nur den Status Quo der Stencilkunst wider, sondern bringt auch die Kunst der Schablonen-Graffiti in konzentrierter Form zurück nach Hamburg.

Cutting out stencils is one of the most known techniques of street art. The original purpose of stencils was to quickly reproduce and spread political messages in public space. By now, they have developed to an individual art genre with heavy influence on street art.

Through the CUT OUT-show, the two curators Felix Rau (eins92) and Rudolf David Klöckner (urbanshit), gather eighteen of the most interesting stencil artists of Europe under one roof. By exhibiting one work per artist, the show not only reflects the status quo of stencil art but also brings back stencil art to Hamburg in a highly concentrated form.

Coming Soon: Shepard Fairey's New LA Show and Hulu Doc

After ‘Hope,’ and Lawsuit, Shepard Fairey Tries Damage Control
By JORI FINKELNOV. 3, 2017 (LINK)

LOS ANGELES — By just about any measure, it’s been a long time since the street artist Shepard Fairey managed to capture the optimism of Barack Obama’s candidacy in his “Hope” poster, the stylized portrait in red, white and blue tones that easily ranks as the most famous, also ubiquitous, artwork of 2008.

Mr. Fairey’s oldest daughter, then 2 years old, is now almost a teenager. The “Hope” image became the subject of a copyright infringement lawsuit by The Associated Press that was both expensive and embarrassing for the artist. Mr. Fairey, who is 47, has since gone on to create art for activist movements like Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March.

And now “Damaged” — his biggest gallery show yet, with about 200 new paintings, prints and illustrations made since 2015 — is set to open on Nov. 11 in a Chinatown warehouse, the same day a documentary on the artist has its premiere on Hulu. The mood of the exhibition: what happens when hope gets trampled but not killed.

15 April: Adam Feibelman's Personal Provenance (SF, CA)

As artist Adam Feibelman found on a recent trip to walk the rugged trails traversing the border between Tucson and Nogales, the sharp divisions ingrained in national identities and our senses of place are rendered hazily ambiguous as the paths between nations wind off into the distance—no hard line in sight.  In a similar sense, the work of Taravat Talepasand capitalizes on the image systems that indoctrinate Iranian identity, state power and gender, and how these notions are portrayed within and augmented through a steady stream of American popular culture.  Through their respective exhibitions, Adam Feibelman’s Personal Provenance and Taravat Talepasand’s Born in Iran, Made in America, the artists explore the critical boundaries and borders that separate places and people—questioning, transgressing and meditating on both the systems of separation as well as a seemingly growing need for intensifying said divisions.

3 Mar: Jef Aerosol's People and Things (FR)

« people and things » : des gens et des choses…
Jef aurait aussi bien pu appeler cette exposition « Sujets et Objets », dans tous les sens des deux vocables.
Humains ou inertes, vivants ou inanimés, ces objets/sujets se jouxtent, se complètent, dialoguent, racontent ce que nous sommes et ce qui nous constitue : rêves, peurs, espoirs, colères, larmes, sourires, souvenirs, interrogations…

Tantôt profond ou sombre, tantôt léger ou futile, à la fois possédé par ses nostalgies et remué par l’actualité, l'artiste pulvérise ses émotions à travers la dentelle de ses pochoirs. Pour cette exposition, il a privilégié le carton et le bois de récupération : supports vivants et si « riches de leur pauvreté ». Une fois de plus, Jef Aérosol affirme cet « engagement poétique » qui le caractérise.

Né à Nantes en 1957, vivant à Lille depuis 1984, Jef Aérosol est l’un des pionniers de ce qu’on appelle aujourd’hui « street art » ou « art urbain ».
Il pose sa première empreinte au pochoir en 1982 dans la ville de Tours où il réside alors.
Son imagerie doit autant à la culture punk-rock-pop qu’aux anonymes de la rue et ses oeuvres sont toujours soulignées de sa marque de fabrique : une mystérieuse flèche rouge. Depuis, ce dandy de la bombe aérosol a laissé sa marque sur les murs de nombreuses villes dans le monde entier : pochoirs furtifs ou grandes fresques murales telle celle que la Mairie du 4ème arrondissement de Paris lui a commandée en 2011 : le grand « Chuuuttt!!! » qui trône près du Centre Pompidou, face à la fontaine de Tinguely et Nikki de St Phalle.
Ses personnages en noir, blanc et nuances de gris, illustres ou inconnus, souvent peints à l’échelle 1, témoignent de l’attachement de Jef à de profondes valeurs humanistes. Son travail est également visible dans de nombreuses manifestations et expositions en galeries et musées, tant en France qu’à l’étranger. Sur le territoire hexagonal, il est représenté à Marseille par David Pluskwa et à Paris par la prestigieuse galerie Laurent Strouk.

 

25 Feb.: Douglas Miles at the de Young (SF)

Douglas Miles, Global Fellow and February 2017 Artist-in-Residence
Kimball Education Gallery

February 1-26, 2017
Wednesdays–Sundays, 1–5 pm
Reception: Saturday February 25, 3–5 pm

APACHELYPSE Now is a glimpse into the multi-faceted work of Douglas Miles from the San Carlos Apache Nation in Arizona. Using street art forms, he creates work that simultaneously deconstructs stereotypes and emboldens Native people in the 21st century. His renegade ethos at work creates a new iconography in art, photos, and film. The title APACHELYPSE Now is an homage to Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam epic Apocalypse Now about a lone poet, renegade colonel, and his tribe gone rogue from the U.S.

Douglas Miles is an artist, designer, photographer, filmmaker, muralist, public speaker, and founder of Apache Skateboards. His work encourages reflection on how art can foster community-building and promote pride and well-being, especially among young people. His work is rooted in Apache history and deeply engaged with the world of contemporary pop culture. Miles’ work has been exhibited at Princeton University, Columbia University, the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, and the Institute of American Indian Arts Museum in Santa Fe. He recently collaborated with actor and author Ethan Hawke and artist Greg Ruth on a New York Times bestseller graphic novel, Indeh: A Story of the Apache Wars.

Ticket Information
The Kimball Education Gallery is located in the free zone of the museum; no tickets are required. Please drop by any time during open hours.

Cave Temples of Dunhuang: Buddhist Art on China’s Silk Road
The Getty
Through Sept. 4

On a sunny afternoon, the glare in the Getty Center’s Arrival Plaza is blinding—and stepping into Cave 285 feels like teleporting to heaven. Here, in one of the main features of “Cave Temples of Dunhuang: Buddhist Art on China’s Silk Road,” winged creatures flutter on the vaulted ceiling while, on the walls, Buddhas preach, myths unfold, mortals repent, donors pay homage. Amid scrolling florals and colored flames, a large Buddha sits, his face a featureless mass of clay. This is a full-size copy, created by hand on the basis of detailed scans and myriad photographs of a grotto carved into cliffs that edge the Gobi desert in northwestern China. It is as faithful to the colors, designs and brushstrokes artists used in A.D. 538-39 as it is to the deterioration and damage that nature and man have since wrought.

The fragility of some sites has made copies an increasingly viable way to share treasures more widely without endangering them. The Getty’s exhibition uses them in tandem with more traditional displays to bring out the richness, complexity and conservation challenges of one of the world’s great art treasures. Its curatorial team includes experts from the Getty’s institutes for research and conservation, the Dunhuang Academy and the New York-based Dunhuang Foundation, and while theirs is not the first U.S. show to tackle the subject, it is the most ambitious.
