As street art moves from the street into the galleries, the challenge the artist faces is how to "transfer" the aesthetic and impact that their work has on the street onto a canvas and into the galleries.

"We wanted to say HELLO to Denver from the creative sector as well as promoting an event called PROJECT HELLO.
For the piece we used 45 painted cardboard pieces that fit into the framework of the pedestrian bridge using zip ties to spell out HELLO. We had about 30 of our amazing creative friends help us gather cardboard, cut, paint and install the piece over the course of last week. The piece lasted about 4 days."...

'Kindred Times and Future Goodbyes' a recent event that a few friends (Foma <3, Klone and Zero Cents) and i recently put on. like the name implies, the show was in an abandoned building in south tel aviv. the location is an amazing structure that had its insides basically completely torn out, leaving only the four walls and allowing the skies to be seen through the non-existent roof and arched windows.
the building itself seems to be a somewhat historic building, and is set to be restored and preserved, but we painted in it, revisiting it and adding new pieces each visit, until we felt that it was complete.
we then decided on a date for the opening event, and opened a blog to announce the location on the day of the event, due to the fact that it was all done without permission.
i think that all in all it made for a very special night, with a lot of great people coming out, cheap wine, and bonfires to light it all up when it got darker."... Know Hope

From Buff Diss:
"just wanted to let you know about a show i'm having in italy this friday - pretty stoked about it. i've found a 'deblessed' 15th century church in pisa, 700 year old frescoes still in tact, and have been allowed to tape the entire building for the show (left the frescoes alone). it's the first time i've really had time to work detail into the tapings and on this scale as well.
here's a short release that's accompanying the show -
On the 25th of September, Buff Diss will take over the entirety of the 15th century Church of Saint Bernard for his first European show entitled “God's left the building”. Intrigued by Christianity, the artist will tackle it’s divinity on the walls and floors of the church itself, appropriating iconography and constructing a replica tower of Babel in the exhibition’s centre.
God's left the Building. Cantiere Sanbernardo. via Pietro Gori, angolo via SanBernardo, Pisa
Opening 25th September. 7 - 11.45 pm

One thing that we've struggled with over the years is how to manage all of the emails we receive each day about upcoming shows and exhibitions.
We try to highlight a few each week, but the reality is that if we post all of them it would take up all of our time and the Wooster site would be one massive upcoming events page. But at the same time, we really want to support these shows as most of them are terrific. We want to help get the word out. The struggle has been in how to do it.
If you've been following us on Facebook, then you know we've tried to use Facebook as a companion to the Wooster site. We're using Facebook to do things on that we can't do well here.
So starting this week, on every Monday we're asking the question on our Facebook page:
Are there any good art openings this week? What are you looking forward to seeing? (post a link)
So if you're a gallerist or artist looking to get the word out about an opening, we encourage you become a fan of the Wooster Collective Facebook page and post your shows and events as a response to our question.
You can find the Wooster Collective page by clicking here.

DESIGN AS SOCIAL AGENT DAY
Saturday, April 4, 10 am - 5 pm
Through a full day of presentations, interviews, gallery tours, author talks, and more, this program considers the place of Shepard Fairey's work in a powerful design history of civic empowerment and resistance, seeks to understand how images resonate and gain momentum, examines the latest trends in communication and messaging, and discusses the implicit challenges of social agency in design.
Featuring speakers from fields of design, street art, music, and advertising, the programs explore the intersection of visual culture and social transformation, and how our understanding of originality, plagiarism, legality, and the artistic process has been exploded.

This weekend, Sara and I will be heading up to Toronto to participate in the City Renewal Project which opens this coming Friday night November 7th from 7 - 11 pm at 39 Lisgar Street
City Renewal Project is a large-scale, site-specific collaborative installation by fauxreel and Specter. The project focuses on the state of decay within the city, specifically examining abandoned storefronts and infrastructure that's on the verge of being erased from the cityscape. Housed inside a 4400 square foot warehouse, the project renews these dilapidated buildings as artistic monuments and documents their history amidst the gentrified frenzy of urban change.
On Saturday November 8th at 7pm, Sara and I will be giving a slideshow/lecture at 381 Queen Street West, Suite 200
It'll be an informative discussion about the world of outdoor art. We're told thats seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so arrive early to ensure a spot.

FACE2FACE is a new project that the French photographer JR first told us about when he was in New York for the Wooster on Spring event. On March 4th, the portraits collected for the project will finally be pasted up on both the Palestinian and Isreali sides of the separation wall / security fence.
If you are not yet familiar with it, here's a description of the project, nicked from the FACE2FACE website:
"When we met in 2005, we decided to go together in the Middle-East to figure out why Palestinians and Israelis couldn't find a way to get along together.
We then traveled across the Israeli and Palestinian cities without speaking much. Just looking to this world with amazement.
This holly place for Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
This tiny area where you can see mountains, sea, deserts and lakes, love and hate, hope and despair embedded together.
After a week, we had a conclusion with the same words: these people look the same; they speak almost the same language, like twin brothers raised in different families.
A religious covered woman has her twin sister on the other side. A farmer, a taxi driver, a teacher, has his twin brother in front of him. And he his endlessly fighting with him.
It's obvious, but they don't see that.
We must put them face to face. They will realize.
We want that, at last, everyone laughs and thinks when he sees the portrait of the other and his own portrait.
The Face2Face project is to make portraits of Palestinians and Israelis doing the same job and to post them face to face, in huge formats, in unavoidable places, on the Israeli and the Palestinian sides.
In a very sensitive context, we need to be clear.
We are in favor of a solution for which two countries, Israel and Palestine would live peacefully within safe and internationally recognized borders.
All the bilateral peace projects (Clinton/Taba, Ayalon/Nussibeh, Geneva Accords) are converging in the same direction. We can be optimistic.
We hope that this project will contribute to a better understanding between Israelis and Palestinians.
Today, "Face to face" is necessary.
Within a few years, we will come back for "Hand in hand". "
Last Friday night No New Enemies and partner Mr. Ego, welcomed somewhere between 300 and 400 people to the opening of Animal Profane Plutonic: Icon Disruption's Under the Earth's Surface …
Artists involved are: Guifari (BE), Neasden Control Centre (Uk) and Victor Castillo (Chile)
Much like the No New Enemies network itself, the collaborative show and installation developed organically, each artist choosing a word for the title, nonsense making sense for some after the paint was slapped onto the walls.
No New Enemies is a network of artists that began doing public installations and has since began several other activities to support art and it's place in public.

While we were in Amsterdam recently, bo130 and Microbo showed Sara and I a copy of their long awaited sticker book, IZASTIKUP. We absolutely loved the book which is essentially Bo and Microbo's personal collection of thousands of stickers from all over the world. (The book itself is more then two hundred pages)
Now that summer has started, Bo, Microbo and the Don, with the support of CARHARTT have hit the road for a series of IZASTIKUP exhibitions in six European cities. The exhibition showcases a selection from the original pages of the book. The originals have the real stickers on them so that people can fully appreciate the variety of styles and techniques.

Many of you may remember that with the old Wooster site we has a separate page for events listings. One of the reasons for this was that we didn't want events listings to "clog up" the main page. So with the new website, we've decided not to create a separate page for events. Rather, events will work as follows:
+ All events will be announced and listed on the main page (this one)
+ All the information about the event will appear after you click on the link for more info
+ Events will be archived and listed by city in the categories section (as a sub-category for "Events")
In addition to all of this, we're working on setting up separate RSS feeds for each city so that you can subscribe to the RSS events feed for the city you live in so that you will automatically receive new events as we put them up on the site.
