Behind the Seen
a group exhibition curated by Michael De Feo
at AD HOC ART
December 13th, 2007 through January 20th, 2008
Opening Reception: December 13th, 7pm-9pm
A collection of artists and artist collectives, all who highly regard the street as their canvas fiercely decontextualized on the basis of medium.
FROM AD HOC ART:
Assembling a group of well known street artists from around the world, De Feo invited the participants to showcase work they’re not typically recognized for. Behind the Seen includes personal projects, works in different mediums or styles and pieces not necessarily intended for view on the streets. The mediums include paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures by over 30 artists from around the world.
Street artists develop a level of notoriety for their originality, talent and frequency of a style or visual vocabulary. Like most successful artists, they don’t limit their creative endeavors to what they’re known for.
Behind the Seen goes beyond the familiar to build upon what we already know… providing connections, challenges and insights to other facets of the artist?s oeuvre.
