March 2nd, 2017 – April 13th, 2017
First Amendment Gallery is pleased to present “Get With The Program”, a collection of new collaborative work from graffiti artists Pemex and Klops. Join us for the opening reception Thursday, March 2, 2017, from 7-10PM. The event is free and open to the public, the artists will be in attendance.
In the world of graffiti and massive urban murals, Pemex is a hard name to overlook. Focusing primarily on social injustice, his work represents and incorporates this theme in public spaces through letter concepts. Renowned for executing intricate pieces in limited time frames, Pemex’s work can be viewed around the world. Originally from Los Angeles, he now calls the Bay Area home.
Klops is a graffiti writer hailing from Queens, New York City. Klops is a self-taught artist whose work tends to make a political or social commentary, and other times is simply hilarious in nature. “Get With The Program” is Klops’ first collaborative show in San Francisco.
Get With The Program displays the collaborative, yet dynamic, perspectives of the artists in regards to the society around them. Each piece is a joint effort of social critique–playful yet poignant.
“Get With The Program” will be on display until April 15, 2017. For inquiries or catalog requests contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
