By Melody Mock for ABQ Arts The words “YOUR” and “HERE” sit above and below the image of an eye on a billboard in a silkscreened image by Shepard Fairey. “YOUR [eye] HERE”, it says, commanding you to pay attention. This image graces the cover of the guide to “STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression.” In October and November in Albuquerque, your eye and your ear will be drawn to a number of projects, happenings and discussions through this citywide collaboration...

By Adrian GomezJournal Staff Writer Chris Stain works quickly on his graffiti art. It's a quality that suits him well — at least now. "I first got caught when I was 11," says the New York City-based graffiti artist. "Since then, I've learned that I have to be quick with what I do." Stain is one of a handful of artists participating in 516 ARTS' "Street Arts: A Celebration of Hip-Hop Culture and Free Expression" exhibit. The show runs until Dec. 11, mainly at 516 ARTS in Downtown... [more]

Chaz Bojorquez, a Juxtapoz cover artist in March 2009 and a penultimate legend of the Los Angeles graffiti game (we are talking Orson Welles level), made a video this past Fall with poet Idris Goodwin. Titled "New Mexico Remix," the piece was part of a three-month look at Hip-Hop culture and free speech showcased at a non-profit art space in Albuquerque, called 516 ARTS. See video here: http://www.juxtapoz.com/Current/chaz-borjorquez-and-idris-goodwinnew-mexico-remix The show itself... [more]

By Nancy Salem   Street artists who paint, paste and sculpt on urban space haven't always received a warm welcome from the fine art world. Reactions to the art form in the past have ranged from a yawn to accusations of vandalism and threats of jail. But as a major project this fall in Albuquerque shows, today street art is increasingly popular with a broad audience, and with the art world too. "STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression" was organized by the... [more]

Desire

  When I spoke with Shirlae Cheng-Lifshin, the curator of the exhibition, she stated that the seed for the exhibition was based on Monica Majoli's artwork.  Majoli's portray figures deferring to the shadows-profiling the people's grief, loss, and longing.  The portraits are whispers of sensuality reminiscent of Georges de la Tour's paintings of Magdalen. Shirlae chose Los Angeles based artists who complemented Monica's perspective of desire. Gajin Fujita's paintings of Japanese iconography... [more]

It is difficult to pull a coherent synopsis out of an event this large. Prospect.1, to the credit of the city of New Orleans and all involved, is a massive undertaking that showcases a vast array of contemporary art, and in so doing, puts this amazing city, in all its glory and decay, on center stage. With the time I spent in New Orleans and at Prospect.1, I feel like I barely got started. I like to dig in and go at my own pace. I did manage to see an incredible amount of incredible work, but...
