Message from Michael defeo:
I'm very pleased to announce, Behind the Seen, a group exhibition that I'm curating for Ad Hoc Art.
Behind the Seen
a group exhibition curated by Michael De Feo
December 13th, 2007 through January 20th, 2008
Opening Reception: December 13th, 7pm-9pm
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, sculptures and audio art from 39 artists.
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.
Participating artists include:
Aiko, Blek le Rat, Martha Cooper, Michael De Feo, Elbow Toe, ELC, Shepard Fairey, Ellis G., Eltono, Ron English, Jean Faucheur, John Fekner, Flying Fortress, G, Richard Hambleton, Keith Haring, Maya Hayuk, Jace, Mark Jenkins, Lady Pink, L'Atlas, Don Leicht, Lister, Momo, Caleb Neelon, Nuria, PMP, Lee Quinones, Leon Reid, RIPO, JM Rizzi, She Kills He, Skewville, Ian Stevenson, Judith Supine, Swoon, Thundercut, Tofer and Dan Witz.
See you in Brooklyn!
