《街头艺术》

从1月13日到2018年6月3日

世界最知名的街头艺术家们将首次在东南亚展出他们引人注目的作品。

涂鸦一词的英语“graffiti”源自意大利语,意即“乱涂乱写”。从史前洞穴壁画到意大利庞贝古城墙上的铭文,乃至于中国的“大字报”等,涂鸦跨越诸多文明,在人类历史进程中时有所见。20世纪下半叶,一个涂鸦艺术的新时代拉开序幕;到了1970年代末,这股风潮迅速扩散至全球各地并站稳脚跟。在纽约、巴黎、里约和悉尼等不同城市,相关艺术运动的倡导者们跟随都市节奏的律动,孕育出一种充满动感活力的视觉文化。自那以后,它又经历了几番的演变与改造。

回溯这个现在被称为“街头艺术”的风潮,我们会发现它俨然是“彻底城市属性”的产物,即在近代历史的某个点,艺术家们感受到了创作一些作品,并让它们在原生态的、真实的都市环境中被欣赏或体验的悸动。在将这种热忱付诸实施的过程中,他们形成了自己独有的表现手法和效果,以期传递富有冲击力的讯息。这些讯息可以是一个简单的涂鸦“签名”,也可以是一种政治诉求。

“街头艺术”有时亦被称为“喷涂艺术”、“涂鸦”或“模板涂鸦艺术”。它一直都在发展和演变,几乎无法被“定型”和分类。甚至连“街头艺术”这个词,其实也不甚准确,因为如今很多作品已经不是在街上,或为了在街上展示而创作。

过去的先驱现已成为饶有建树的艺术家,而新生代将不断从他们身上汲取灵感,不断地创造和革新,以期进一步突破这项艺术运动的极限。此外,尽管“街头艺术”起源于城市,它现已成为一项在全球均有广泛认可度的艺术表现形式,并且深深扎根于当今的视觉文化。它跟我们所处的现代社会紧密相关,因此是20世纪最有价值的艺术运动之一。

本项“街头艺术”展览由艺术科学博物馆特邀相关领域的专家及作家——Magda Danysz担任策展人。展览将回溯这项运动的文化渊源,及其作为一项现代艺术形式的独特演变过程。展览覆盖的时间跨度长达40多年,而展品则是从最著名代表人物的大型壁画、装置、视像、素描和档案资料中精选而得。为了体现这项艺术形式演变至今的生命力和多样性,艺术科学博物馆亦委托多名现代“街头艺术”的佼佼者,特地为本项展览带来新的作品。这些作品将在展厅墙面上直接创作。除了籍此介绍曾引起轰动的西班牙“街头艺术”大师——Felipe Pantone等人,展览也将通过来自印尼的Eko Nugroho,以及来自新加坡的Speak Cryptic 和 Yok & Sheryo等人的作品,聚焦东南亚城市艺术的现状。

这些艺术家包括:
Banksy、Tarek Benaoum、Stéphane Bisseuil、Blade、Crash、Speak Cryptic、D*face、Fab 5 Freddy、FAILE、Shepard Fairey(也称为 Obey)、Futura、Invader、JR、L'Atlas、Ludo、M-City、Nasty、Eko Nugroho、Nunca、Felipe Pantone、Quik、Lee Quinones、Blek le Rat、Rero、Remi Rough、André Saraiva、Seen、Seth、Sten Lex、Tanc、Hua Tunan、Yok Sheryo、YZ, Zevs 等等。

Art on the Streets

More than showing art from the streets within our spaces, we go a step further to have a programme of art on the streets, with new works by local and international artists being created for public spaces in the streets of Singapore. Speak Cryptic, Felipe Pantone, and Remi Rough, have been commissioned to take their works beyond the galleries of ArtScience museum, as part of the endeavour to reframe the public’s perception of Street Art, revealing a dynamic and energetic art movement in a constant state of flux. Click here to see where the artists have invaded the city.

Five graffiti artists took part in a live graffiti battle hosted by ArtScience Museum around the theme of ‘Sunset by the Bay’. Featuring SONG, REAPS, MIZNEK, ASMOE and ALOTONE, each had the same tools, colours available and 8 hours to complete their walls. Watch to see was the judges’ and crowd favourite.
