A Mash-up of Urban Contemporary Art presented by VISUAL
March 21 – April 25, 2019
Opening reception: Thursday, March 21, 6 – 9PM
This group exhibition will showcase the diverse and innovative movement of urban contemporary art in San Diego. With the intention to create awareness of this relatively new genre, this exhibit featuring paintings, drawings, photographs, and sight specific murals will show how street art and graffiti has crossed over and influenced other mediums of fine art. Each participating artist will work on a designated portion of wall inside the Hyde Art Gallery, and each mural or installation will meld into the adjacent work, transforming the gallery into one complete artwork, highlighting the importance of collaboration within this artist community.
The participating artists will be Adrian Anthony, Barfo, Benny Ochoa, Don't Trip, Duel RIS, Ethos One, EYEGATO, Hyper Helix, Jason Gould, kurznachzehn, Luisa Martinez, Mary Jhun, Mr B Baby, MR DVICE, Nat Iosbaker, Nick Mcpherson, Paul Vargas, PEZ, Remio, and Sergio Hernandez.
The Hyde Art Gallery will host an opening reception on Thursday, March 21 from 6PM to 9PM with performances by Yujin 13, Strange Creature, Stella Perish, and Piskicker. Video projections that evening will be provided by Zia Sinclair and music by Eskimo Brothers. Delicious refreshments will be served. All Hyde Art Gallery exhibitions and events are always free and open to the public.
