Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Once again during this year’s Art Basel, graff writers and street artists will hit the Wynwood streets in Miami’s second installment of the internationally acclaimed, site specific, street level, mural installation Primary Flight.
This year’s exhibition features 40 of today’s most respected local and international graffiti artists, including Blek le Rat (Juxtapoz #95) David Choe (Juxtapoz #72) Retna, Revok, Reyes (all in Juxtapoz #78) Will Barras (Juxtapoz #91) and many more!
Graffiti has come a long way, from the back seats of police cars to gracing the walls of the world’s greatest collections and museums. Primary Flight’s original concept and purpose is to provide these artists with outdoor, concrete wall space, allowing them free reign to install their art as they see fit - back into graffiti’s original environment - in what is arguably its most appealing format.
Curated by BOOKSIIII, Lynn Yohana Howard, Logan Hicks, and Anthony Spinello, Primary Flight will take off during Art Basel, December 4 – 7, 2008.
Maps outlining the street installation will be available for download online at primaryflight.com and on location in the Wynwood streets.
