First Show of 2020: « WALLS » A Collective Exhibition Featuring 30 International Artists

For their first show of 2020, Urban Spree Galerie presents « WALLS », a collective exhibition featuring 30 international artists. 

Expanding the historical timeline and geographical scope beyond the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, « WALLS » explores the notion of the wall, from Antiquity to contemporary issues, viewed through the lens of artists committed to the public space and whose work is closely related to walls.

Curated by Fabrice Douar and Cyrille Gouyette (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) and co-curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin), « WALLS » invites prominent artists from the comics & street art scenes to create graphic works of fiction related to walls, interpreted either as simple architectural elements, ominous symbols of segregation, canvases and vessels to convey meaning, textures, or imaginary playgrounds and labyrinths.

While some antique artefacts appear in the show to testify of their immortal, silent presence, in the 21st Century, the Minotaur doesn’t wait at the center of his realm but has clearly moved outside, demultiplied its presence, and is building more walls.

The exhibition’s direction is therefore resolutely multifaceted, contemporary and graphic-oriented, spanning several topographies (Europe, South Korea, Middle East, Hong Kong, Cuba…), and art forms (painting, photography, installations, videos).
