Curatorial Statement //
This project presents ARBE FISHE and VERSUS in the performance of graffiti art murals as collaborative products and is captured as a simultaneous narrative of image and sound.
The composition and arrangement of the pieces reflect the artists’ techniques. What emerges is an unfiltered but rhythmic visual identity that both provokes and subdues the senses.
The current project pays homage to the previous traveling exhibition SURVIVE. Last year, our journey took us from New Orleans to Detroit to Oakland. This year, we join our mural productions spanning Newark, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, culminating with a gallery exhibition this December in the artists’ hometown of Los Angeles.
