November 28 / March 30 2013 - L'Adresse musée de la Poste
After "Paint BAL: mailboxes for Keith Haring," L'Adresse musée de la Poste offers for the second time, a group exhibition of artists from Street Art movement with: Banksy, C215, Dran, Invader, L'Atlas , Ludo, Miss.Tic, Rero, Shepard Fairey, Swoon and Vhils.
The choice of the curator, Céline Neveux, has focused on the movement that is closer to urban contemporary art than Graffiti, showing its main protagonists European and French. The exhibition begins with a brief history of the movement in France with artists such as Ernest Pignon-Ernest and Gerard Zlotykamien who never have made Graffiti and Blek Le Rat, Jef Aerosol and Jérôme Mesnager who unlike Americans pioneers are not from the hip hop culture. Giving to six of them a free creative space, they showcase both their intervention work in situ and their works called "commercial" exhibited and sold by art galleries. This confrontation highlights the aesthetic and plastic work of artists of this movement, far from simple vandalism.
If you want to make disappear your prejudices on this movement, you just have to go for a ride "Beyond Street Art" until March 30th.
