At the end of the above-ground Bronx 6 train - that inherently links graffiti with street art - over 50 artists come together to create a unique space in a house in the Bronx. “UNDER ONE ROOF,” will be a guerrilla exhibition that is as much an exploration of street art and graffiti communication as it is of street influence on contemporary culture.
The show which includes artists such as Swoon, Ben Frost, Street Level Culture, 4Fun and old schoolers like Easy & Sen4, will be paired with conversations on authenticity, music by underground musicians, fashion exhibitions and the performing arts.
Recently, nothing has stirred more interest in art circles than the arguments between street artists and graffiti artists. Contention is made public through the visual defacement of an artist’s work for the sole purpose of destroying credibility.
The belief that New York needs a place for artists to develop their craft scarcely requires apology. “This event will evoke a positive, charitable and exciting attitude .” The show will be a benefit event for artists to develop a live work space in the same location using art as the resource.
