Description

Pop meets street art. For the first time, international artists and designers from the street art scene will come together at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf. More than 300 works of photography and graphic design, as well as graffiti, sculptures and designer toys, will be presented in spectacular displays to create a colourful Gesamtkunstwerk of pop culture

Many of the artists chosen for this exhibition come from skateboard and graffiti scenes. They grew up with characters like Homer Simpson and Knight Rider – which is why this exhibition is also a chance to reconnect with 90s pop culture icons. Since then, street art has become so popular that millions are paid at art auctions for works by artists like Banksy or JR. Shepard Fairey, who designed the notorious “Hope” campaign poster for former US President Barack Obama, has also found worldwide fame.

Street art originally stemmed from protest cultures, civil disobedience and countercultural movements of the 1960s and 1970s. In the United States, young graffiti artists first sprayed their names or simple tags on houses and underground trains. This later evolved into increasingly sophisticated images that covered entire building walls. The entire city became a gallery. These pioneers took great risks and remained largely anonymous because of their illegal actions. Many of the artists chosen for this exhibition come from skateboard and graffiti scenes. They grew up with characters like Bart Simpson and Luke Skywalker – which is why this exhibition is also a chance to reconnect with 80s and 90s pop culture icons.
