Frost Theatre of the Arts Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC

Who actually started street art as it is thought of today is a subject hotly debated by artists, arts professionals, enthusiasts, academics, and critics, with some going as far as declaring 35,000 year old Indonesian cave paintings the first - although there weren’t exactly “streets” yet. There were roads and graffiti in ancient Rome, and political slogans and images appeared on the streets of Europe at least as early as the nascent twentieth century.

17 FROST GALLERY PRESENTS

collaborations are vivid representation of the American landscape. The show’s title, This Land is My Land, taken from Woody Guthrie’s landmark song, embodies the artists’ intent behind both the work and their own lifestyle. Guthrie describes the disenfranchised American staking a hypothetical claim to the landscape, reiterating native American concepts of land ownership. Their work inspired by the New York City graffiti movement and the Hudson River school not only attempts to document the American experience, but lay claim, even if only for a moment, to enlivening our relationship to the landscape through abstraction.

CRASH has always been down to put in the work. On Thursday night at 17 Frost gallery in Brooklyn, the graffiti-pioneering subway painter will unveil Collaborations, his new concept show that was curated by Ellis Gallagher and culls from four decades worth of mind melds with other writers and artists. And, it’s clear that the push-and-pull of painting with BIO, Nick Walker, KAWS, DAZE, SHE ONE, Remi Rough, MAD C, SMASH 137 and BR 163 agrees with CRASH. Though still planted in signature territory, the art of working together stretches him to consider new creative corners.

17 FROST ART AND PERFORMANCE SPACE

Upon entering the studio of illustrator Jon Burgerman, you are transported to a space entirely devoted to a world of extreme sights and sounds that connate the artist’s work. Contrasted by the days of rain surrounding New York, the shuffles of crowds and warm hues shone through the bleak emptiness outside. Holding cups of English Breakfast tea, coming from his native country, we spent a few drenched mornings discussing the observations that have led to this body of pieces, produced for Hot Girls and Hot Dogs, opening tonight at 17 Frost Street.
