Magic City – The Art of the Street
Urban Art is having a worldwide renaissance as artists everywhere are claiming public space for the public imagination.
What began primarily in the 1960s as graffiti, a stealth youth movement of tagging trains and city walls with personal, political and social messages, has branched out into stunning museum-quality public art that gives a new voice to many and fetches critical praise from academia and art collectors. The Street Art scene has international stars, many with huge fan-bases, who follow and eagerly anticipate their new works on the street. From massive-scale spectacular artworks that dominate a cityscape, to inventive, often illicit, almost hidden small works that thrill when discovered, what was once an outsiders’ art is now quickly expanding into the mainstream.
Right now the timing is perfect for a touring exhibition that celebrates the best of this work and showcases its ability to empower and inspire. The curatorial aspect of such a show is key, and as such SC Exhibitions has invited Carlo McCormick, the renowned American author and curator, along with a prestigious international team, to design Magic City. Together they have commissioned new works from over 60 outstanding urban artists to create a uniquely “street” environment that only exists for this singular exhibit – a Magic City in all its aspects.
