Where: The FUTURE PRESENCE Gallery

When: ONE NIGHT ONLY
Friday, July29th: 5-11 PM
The FUTURE PRESENCE Gallery would like to invite you to a special one-night only exhibition titled IMPERMANENT PUBLIC, an examination on the new evolution of street art as a means of positive interaction in public spaces. There is little doubt that street art is now one of the dominant voices in contemporary art. Celebrity street artists such as Banksy, Space Invader and OBEY can be found in public settings but predominantly in galleries, museums, and in endless lines of merchandise. The focus of this type of street art tends to be recognition for the artist, and not for the art itself. IMPERMANENT PUBLIC will examine work by local, national and international artists whose main message is awakening a renewed wonderment with the urban landscape, all while using organic materials and non-destructive methods to relate with the public and our shared spaces.
The show will feature documented work as well as special site-specific installations by yarn artist HOTTEA, internationally renowned artist Sean Martindale of Toronto, Light The Underground, Andrew Casey, Phil Jones, Jenny Moxley and Nathaniel. One of the highlights of the evening will no doubt be a special “Momentary Performance” by Experiential artist Lee Walton, whose work publicly documents the most basic actions of a modern urbanite. This will surely be one of the most talked about art events of the summer, and we hope to see you there.This event is presented in part by l’etoile Magazine, Pabst Blue Ribbon and MPLS.TV.
