Introducing Writing on the Wall:
The art’s not just inside anymore – it’s on the walls, bridges, buildings, signs and streets all around you. Whether a public installation, community fountain or a spray-painted mural, the city is now an outdoor museum, with street art often expressing underlying political and social concerns of the community. Art builds bridges between people and ideas – and street art is often a way to see in to the soul of a city. MFA invites all 2-and 3-D artists to offer examples of public art, including street art, and its effects. The selected artworks may be viewed on MFA’s online Curve Gallery from June 15 through July 31, 2018.
Gen Duarte is a Brazilian artist and owner of Cura Gallery in São Paulo, Brazil. A few years ago, Duarte was looking for new places to show his artwork and it resulted in his opening the Cura Gallery in March of 2017. The innovative space is noted for a mixed agenda of rotating art exhibitions that feature works of recognized and emerging artists, plus holding book and print signings and gigs for noted musicians and singers. It can be said that the Crua Gallery, embraces the spirit of the streets and the city: it is a non-static environment, which is never complete, but in continuing transformation.
