3. Catch Art from the Streets (Ticketed)
Date: Till 3 June 2018
Art from the Streets celebrates 40 years of Street Art, charting its countercultural beginnings to its extraordinary rise in the contemporary art world. Visitors to the exhibition are amongst the first in Singapore and Southeast Asia to have the opportunity to view works from some of the most renowned artists in the field, including Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Invader, JR, Blek le Rat and Vhils.
Curated by Street Art expert and gallerist Magda Danysz, Art from the Streets comprises over 200 large-scale mural paintings, installations, videos, prints, archival material, drawings and sketches, which showcase the vitality and diversity of the urban art movement.
ArtScience Museum has also invited 10 prominent street artists to take over the museum’s galleries, to create new site-specific artworks for the exhibition. The 10 new commissions are by up-and-coming Argentinian-Spanish artist, Felipe Pantone; Paris-based Moroccan artist, Tarek Benaoum; Polish graphic designer and illustrator, M-City; French street artists, Ludo, YZ and Zevs; one of UK’s leading post-graffiti artists, Remi Rough; Yogyakarta-based artist, Eko Nugroho and Singaporean urban artists, Speak Cryptic and Sheryo & Yok. These artists have adopted different techniques and mediums to create their artworks, from stenciling, calligraffiti, painting, spraying to “upcycling” materials.
