An Intercontinental survey of Othercontemporary Urban Art
Opening Reception: Friday, March 14th, 2014, 6:30 – 9:30pm
Show Dates: March 14th through April 12th
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present, “A Major Minority”, opening on March 14th, from 6:30 - 9:30 PM. Curated by San Francisco-based artist Poesia, “A Major Minority” is a survey of Othercontemporary Urban Artists from over 18 countries consisting of over a 100 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.” @1amsf @graffuturism
