Last Days for the Grand Boucle Exhibition in London

post2_grandeOriginally created at Urban Spree Galerie in July 2012 by Christoph Reichert (chipsnchampagne) and Urban Spree’s resident screenprinter Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker), the Grand Boucle exhibition then travelled to Budapest in April 2013 in an enhanced format and finally hit the UK race tracks in May at Shoreditch’s Kemistry Gallery

Conceived as a critical and visual narrative of vintage and contemporary bike design, Grand Boucle displays a selection of new and vintage bicycles, bespoke saddles as well as  the ‘Grand Boucle’ magazine. Complimenting it is a silk screen printed testimonial to bicycle related design & photography, such as vintage head-badge posters & postcards as well as photographical large scale prints.

Grand Boucle is on until June 1st, 2013.



Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.

TESS PARKS (A Records)

A native of Toronto, Tess Parks moved to London, England at the age of seventeen where she briefly studied photography before dropping out and deciding to focus on music. Tess managed to make an impression on industry legend Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records, albeit the timing of their meeting could hardly have been less ideal; McGee was no longer involved in music and Tess was due to move back to Toronto.

After moving back to her hometown in 2012, Tess formed a band on the advice of Alan McGee and less than a year after their meeting, he returned to music with his new label, ‘359 Music’. Tess became one of his first six signings and released her debut record Blood Hot in November 2013 to excellent reviews.
In February 2014, she began recording with Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe in Berlin and they completed their debut record ‘I Declare Nothing’ in autumn 2014. The record was released on ‘a Recordings’ in June 2015 to stunning reviews and a series of sold out UK and European tours. Tess continues to collaborate with Anton on Brian Jonestown Massacre records, co-writing the title track on their November 2015 EP ‘Pish’, the title track ‘Third World Pyramid’ released in October of 2016, and several songs on ‘Don’t Get Lost’.
The next Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe record is due out in October 2018, following an EP entitled ‘Right On’ due out in the spring.

Das britische Duo Let’s Eat Grandma, bestehend aus Rosa Walton und Jenny Hollingworth, wird in diesen Jahr ein neues Album veröffentlichen und geht im Vorfeld dazu auf Teaser-Tour. Ihre erste Singleauskopplung ‚HOT PINK‘ wurde bereits vom Guardian online zum Song der Woche gewählt, in die Playlist von FACT aufgenommen und vom NME zum ‚hottest track‘ des Tages gekürt!

Mit ihrem Vorgänger-Album und gleichzeitigem Debüt „I, Gemini“ (VÖ: Juni 2016 via Transgressive / via Pias) haben Let’s Eat Grandma unvorhersehbaren und faszinierenden Wide-Screen-Pop kreiert. Für die Medien – NME, Pitchfork, Spiegel Online, Musikexpress etc – war/ist das ein spektakuläres Debüt. Ihre Shows in London sind immer wieder ausverkauft, sie traten bei Jools Holland auf und spielten in 2017 bereits auf Festivals wie dem Haldern Pop, Appletree Garden, 3000Grad Festival, Primavera Sound, SXSW, Pop Kultur und Reeperbahn Festival.

MAY

Die Afroamerikanisch-dänische Sängerin aus Belgien berührt etwas tief in uns selbst. Die von Berlins Einzelgänger der elektronischen Musik – Robot Koch – produzierten Songs heben sich ab vom Lärm und Durcheinander der modernen Musik. „Viele Musikstücke entfernen uns von uns selbst“, erklärt May. Sie will uns dazu zu ermutigen, unsere Gefühle in ihrem vollen Umfang zu erfahren. „Gold“ ist die erste Single ihrer Debut-EP, die im Januar veröffentlicht wurde. Mays Stimme entwickelt eine scheinende/glänzende, packende Klarheit während die schillernden elektronischen Sounds und die elektrischen Beats von Robot Koch seinen Mut darstellen , gleichzeitig cool und etwas distanziert zu sein. Diese Qualitäten fehlen in der kontemporären Musik oft, die nicht widerstehen kann, uns in Emotionen zu ertränken. In ihrer Musik ist May so ehrlich, nackt und schutzlos, wie es ein Mensch sein kann.
