Public Provocations III opened at the Carhartt Gallery in Germany. Looking over the pictures courtesy of Fetchonfire and Carhart Gallery it seems to be a very large and well put together exhibition. With a focus on Urban art it is good to see great graffiti artists showcased. Living legends and emerging artists is a great way to describe the show. It is good to see some new work from the likes of Loomit, showcased with El Mac, also mixing in some nice installation graffiti work from Madc and Won abc. The show really delivers a great mix of artwork and artists with contrasting and complimenting styles. Great show I recommend checking it out if you are in Germany.


“Public Provocations» opens on June 11th 2011 at Carhartt Gallery. Already in its third iteration, this year’s exhibition presents a unique cross-section of current works in Urban Art. New curator Stefan Winterle and the Carhartt Gallery Team are showing big name artists, fresh talents, an interdisciplinary cornucopia of styles and formal approaches. Parallel to Art Basel the gallery presents artists that have set benchmarks and artists poised to do so in the near future. The 12 artists will be highlighted within their individually designed spaces, creating an exciting and never before seen collective dynamic befitting their creative spirit.

Urban Art lives through colors and its interpreters. «PUBLIC PROVOCATIONS III» shows works by living legends and young artists hailing from Russia, Europe, the United States and Latin America whose art styles range from stencils, acrylics, oil, writing and characters to architectural creations. The 12 individual artspaces of Carhartt Gallery offer ample room for all of them. El Mac (USA), Loomit (DE), Won ABC (DE), Aryz (ES) Scheme (RU), to name but a few, define styles that inspire others. The works on display suggest how a provocation can evolve – a means of expression and an art style with urban roots, both creative and authentic, that has found its way into museums. A lively and unique exhibition that can be experienced from June until October 2011 at the Carhartt Gallery.”
