From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art Continues through July 15 at ArtsWestchester with Tkid, Wane, Daze, Carlos Mare, BG 183, Damon, Dasic, Li-Hill & more

July 4, 2017


Scrupulously researched and splendidly presented,  From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art at ArtsWestchester is the perfect homage to the graffiti culture and the modern street art movement it spurred.  Curated by Marc Leader of 212 ARTS and Melissa McCaig-Welles of Curator 19.90, it presents murals, paintings, photography, sculpture and installations from graffiti writers who first made their mark on our subways to contemporary multi-disciplinary artists. Picture above is by the legendary TKid 170.  Here are several more images I captured while visiting the landmark exhibit.

Among the many special events in association with From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art is the upcoming July 14 screening of Saving Banksythe story of one art collector’s attempts to save a Banksy painting from destruction and the auction block.  ArtsWestchester is located at 31 Mamaroneck Ave, a short walk from the White Plains Metro North station. The exhibit ends Sunday, July 15 at ArtsWestchester. It would be great if it could then travel, as it deserves a wide audience.

My name is Capucine Bourcart. I am an French artist based in Harlem, NY for more than a decade. I created works based on the walls of New York city. They are now on the LinkNYC screens #Linknyc #artonlink (about 1,700 kiosks) with the series Urban Mosaic I have created after spending 4 years capturing 4,500 photos of details of New York. This digital series can be seen online and I would love to send you pictures of the kiosks screens but I can not attached them in this message.

I have other series made with the walls of New York:

Or the painted pavements of New York:
