MY ADDICTION GALLERY PRESENTS
GOD SAVE THE STREETS: US vs. UK
Works by Various American and British Artists
Exhibition Dates: 1 May 2010 – 30 May 2010
Gallery Opening Date: 30 April 2010 7-10pm
Reception Date: 1 May 2010 6-9pm
My Addiction Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, “God Save the Streets,” offers several examples of street and urban contemporary art from England and the United States, two countries that have played key roles in the development of this style. Prints and originals by artists of both nations pose some intriguing questions about the ways in which people from different countries communicate the importance of their individual cultures. This exhibition aims to familiarize viewers with the diverse artistic and contextual styles of British and American culture as well as how they critique one another through the use of relevant social and political content. The exploration of these topics aptly calls attention to the relationship between American and British street and urban contemporary art, both visually and culturally, and the signifiers of cultural identity found in these works are certainly not to be missed.
Summer Gallery Hours: Saturday – Sunday: 1pm–6pm
(Street Art Salon – First Wednesdays: 7pm and by appointment)
Free to the public every day
