SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present, “A Major Minority”, opening on April 2nd, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM. Curated by San Francisco-based artist Poesia, “A Major Minority” is a survey of 20 Othercontemporary Urban Artists. Expect to see an international sampling of art works that reveal the overall character of Urban Art and its relationship to the public as well as the contemporary art world.
According to Poesia, urban art has become an OtherContemporary art movement outside of the contemporary and critical art world. By taking a large sampling of the world’s most prevalent urban artists, Poesia aims to reveal the true character of this art form as being born outside of theory and based on its interactions with the public as well as its urban landscape. “A Major Minority” is an attempt to illustrate the current progression of this art form as “traditional graffiti merges with street art and becomes what the public has coined Urban Art.”
Exhibiting artists include: Okuda San Miguel, Thierry Furger, William Barras, Proembrion, Autone, Poesia, Zmogk, Dmitri, Dime, CT, Does, Ino, Basik, Etnik, Pener, Seikon, Hellbent, Col Wallnuts, Thomas Bestvina, and Collin van der Sluijs.
