ArtSlant is proud to announce the launch of a new sister-site:
ArtSlant STREET (www.artslantstreet.com) is a new website dedicated to critical perspectives on graffiti, street art, illustration, design, public art, urban art, zines and more. ArtSlant STREET features a comprehensive, curated global events and exhibitions calendar, and international coverage and commentary on art at street-level as well as in the gallery.
ArtSlant STREET’s online Magazine features essays, reviews of gallery shows, op eds, book reviews, studio visits, and interviews with street artists, graffiti writers, curators and more, from a global team of correspondents. In addition, every week, STREET looks back into ArtSlant’s archive, featuring previously published exhibition reviews and interviews with artists like Shepard Fairey, HUSH, INVADER, and more. Artists can also submit their work to be featured on the site (see below).
Visitors to ArtSlant STREET will not only read about street art in the magazine, but will also discover galleries near them that offer artworks by prominent urban artists. ArtSlant STREET interacts with ArtSlant.com’s extensive database of arts spaces around the world to provide curated gallery listings. And since there’s so much art that’s outside of galleries too, we’re looking forward to offering a map of ‘Street Spots’ around the world: walls of fame, mural spots, even whole neighborhoods, any location where you can find great artworks out in public space.
ArtSlant STREET will also offer a user-generated component—like ArtSlant.com—where users can share their own artwork and photographs, list their own exhibitions, and identify their favorite street spots. In the meantime, please SUBMIT your work, or email us to get your gallery or exhibition listed!
