Perkembangan seni stencil di Indonesia belum mendapat pengapresiasian yang baik dalam wilayah seni visual maupun grafis. Hal ini dibuktikannya melalui pameran-pameran yang berskala nasional semisal: Trienalle Grafis, Bienalle dan ajang pameran-pameran. Berbeda dari media lain, perkembangan seni stencil selalu melibatkan publik serta teknologi terapan, yang telah memperluas kemampuan untuk menghasilkan lapisan makna tak terbatas.... Perjumpaan antara medium hingga ruang telah mengubah cara di mana orang memandang realitas.

25 Feb:: Political Poster Jam (Oakland)

February 25, 2011 8 -11pm

Oakland Museum of California
1000 Oak St.
Oakland, CA 94607

The Oakland Standard will honor the history of political posters in the Bay Area, and the Museum's acquisition of the All Of Us Or None (AOUON) collection with an evening of printmaking and conversation.

The Oakland Standard has invited the San Francisco Print Collective, Great Tortilla Conspiracy, and street artist Eddie Colla to host informal drop-in workshops. There will be stencil, linocut, digital, and screenprinting methods on display, and an ample supply of paper, T-shirts, and tortillas for printing practice. The workshops will use imagery that pays homage to the AOUON collection, especially the iconic images of the Black Power movement. We've commissioned local artist-activist Jesus Barraza to create a special poster for the event.

At 9 pm, eminent poster artist and former Black Panther Minister of Culture Emory Douglas, artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez, and archivist Lincoln Cushing will speak with Carol A. Wells, director of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. Amoeba Records will DJ the event, with a short set by Favianna. We'll project images and video of historic poster-making and poster-hanging and highlight some Black Power posters from the Museum's All Of Us Or None Collection.

25 Feb:: Jana and Js "Jeux de constructions" show (Paris)

Jana & Js

Solo show "Jeux de constructions"
February, 25 - March, 26

Opening on Friday, February, 25 from 6 pm

Deserted factories, parking lots being demolished, low rise apartment blocks : these elements - among many others - surround and inspire Jana & Js. Their work is nourished by the city they live in, together with its inhabitants and its ever changing architectural landscape. The paintings created by this couple of artists make use of extremely detailed and scrupulously prepared stencils..
Jana & Js raise the question of the individual in large groups of buildings and more widely in the cities, combining portraits and architectural views.
Their street paintings (in France, Austria, Russia, Slovakia, Romania and Spain) also led them to develop an interaction with the environment in which they operate and the public – passerby or spectator – using sets of mirrors as a game in order to create infinities of ways of seeing the city.
Jana & Js are young artists whose work began to take shape only in the mid-2000, and who are today among the most talented of their generation. After having lived and worked together in Paris, they are today between Austria and France.
Jeux de Constructions is the second exhibition in Itinerrance Gallery devoted to them. Combining their love for woodworking, rebuilding their own materials and images composition from their cuts, this exhibition will present for the first time a wide range of their work volume initiated a few months ago.

Chaque hiver, dans le cadre de l'événement Un artiste - Un univers, le musée des Avelines, musée d'art et d'histoire de Saint-Cloud donne carte blanche à un artiste contemporain invité à prendre possession des lieux pour y déployer son univers. C'est l'occasion pour les visiteurs de découvrir une personnalité, un monde et de s'interroger sur une œuvre contemporaine. Cette année, l'exposition présente l'artiste Jef Aérosol qui travaille le « pochoir de rue ».

L'exposition invite le spectateur à pénétrer dans l'univers original et fascinant de Jef Aérosol. Elle présentera un grand nombre d'œuvres de l'artiste, notamment des portraits. Une installation en boîtes de carton, crée spécialement pour l'occasion, prendra également place dans l'exposition, sous forme de pyramide.

L'exposition s'accompagnera de nombreuses animations telles que des performances de l'artiste et des ateliers pour enfants permettant d'appréhender la technique du pochoir.
