WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY: A BERLIN GROUP SHOW

From 28.04 to 01.05, the Berlin-based art association THE ART UNION presents WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY, a group show featuring artworks by 58 Berlin based artists at the Urban Spree Galerie.

The title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the official Gallery Weekend Berlin, which takes place at the same time. Urban contemporary art is one of Berlin’s defining characteristics, but will hardly be on display at the official Gallery Weekend whose official map doesn’t even cover the area where Urban Spree is located, albeit quite central. THE ART UNION aims to bridge this gap by presenting diverse artistic perspectives following the idea of ONE CITY – ONE WEEKEND – ONE GALLERY – 58 ARTISTS.

The exhibition WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY is thematically created along the lines of different subgenres and styles of this young genre of art in a non-representative way. The work of all the artists presented in this group show can be found in public spaces, as well as in galleries. Other binding elements are their global citizenship and their generational experience. While all the artists shown at WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY. are Berlin-based, not all of them are German. Some artists originate from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Japan and Canada, while others come from the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary, the USA and the UK. Apart from a few exceptions, all were born after 1980. The exhibition aims to display the richness of urban contemporary art in Berlin. Female artists will not be marginalized, but are in fact a vital part of the group show WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY.

About THE ART UNION

The non-profit association THE ART UNION is run by key players in the fields of art and culture with expertise in the communication of art, art funding and visual communication. Daily working practice has exemplified a gap between artists, their audience and the art market, which is difficult to overcome. THE ART UNION intends to build a bridge between these aspects and create formats to professionalize artists and initiate discourses within the scenes. The organization of exhibitions and participation in festivals are as much a vital part of the concept as are artist residencies, funding and exchange programmes.

THE ART UNION was founded in 2015 and will receive an entry in the National Register of Associations in the first half of 2016.

Magic Life: A Group Show

For our last show of 2015, we have crafted a group show featuring some of the best free-spirited painting talents in european contemporary urban arts.

‘Magic Life’ unites under one roof the magic wizards of Vienna, aka the Irga Irga Crew (Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak and Knarf), the Western Germany spirits of Nartur Kunstgruppe (Henning Bischof, Nils Leimkühler, Moritz Neuhoff und Stefan Wiesnau) and our free electron Resident Artist Johannes Mundinger.

All the 9 invited artists are painters, using walls to express their energy and talent with scale, and are characterized by free brush strokes, extreme free flow, disdain of conveniences, and abstracted graffiti.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 24.10.2015 and will run until 27.11.2015.

Please refer to the Galerie page here for more info about the show. Please request the catalogue of the show to galerie@urbanspree.com

Johannes Mundinger

Coming from a Graffiti/Urban Art background, the interaction between his work and a specific site has always been a central aspect of Johannes Mundinger’s work. In fine arts, he developed a visual language between abstract and figurative painting.
Born in 1982 in Offenburg, he has studied in Münster and Brussels. Since 2011 he is living in Berlin and is an Urban Spree Resident Artist since 2012.

Nartur Kunstgruppe aims to combine abstract painting with graffiti, everyday life, naive wisdom and research.

Urban Spree Arkaden Jam

arkadenjam-4

3 years ago, all the arcades with their reddish background, tropical style and weird portraits under Warschauer Brücke were fully repainted by our homies in 2 days of happy painting.

At that time, we didn’t know if the paintings would stay or be covered owing to some real estate development.

3 years after, the spot has seen numerous street artists painting arcades and leaving a mark at Urban Spree.

Our Tel Aviv homie Klone was the first to solo paint an arcade 3 years ago and this move triggered the first spontaneous Arkaden Jam a few days later.

3 years later, Klone is back to Berlin and altogether, we’ll paint all the arcades again.

Urban Spree’s Arkaden Jam will happen on Saturday and Sunday, July 18th and 19th with live music provided by the Urban Spree Summer Sessions.

Participating artists for the 2015 edition include:

Zero Cents * Wurstbande * Vidam * Steffen Mischke * Rylsee * Patu * Pablo Benzo * Otto Baum * Nils Leimkühler * Mik Shida * Mafia-Tabak * Lorio * Look * Knarf * Klone * Kidcash * Johannes Mundinger * Fresh Max * Dxtr * Christoph Rode * Caro Pepe *  Boing * Andrea Wan * Addison Karl * Above * 44flavours
