Shepard Fairey and Dface At CAC Málaga · Centro de Arte Contemporáneo
Hookedblog have just touched down in the sunny Spanish city of Málaga for the upcoming exhibitions Wasted Youth and Your Eyes Here at the Centro De Arte Contemporaneo De Malaga. Following on from their recent stop in Berlin which saw Shepard Fairey and D*Face create new murals as part of Urban Nations PM8 event presented in association with London gallery Stolen Space, both artists are now in Malaga. This is now the first time the two artists have been in town together, they previous worked on these large scale murals back in 2013 pictured above which are still looking fresh and visible in the city next to the museum.
The two shows presented by CAC Malaga Museum will run simultaneously at the Centro De Arte Contemporaneo De Málaga.'Wasted Youth’ will be D*face’s first museum show and will feature a new collection of large scale paintings on canvas, reinterpretations of classic D*Face imagery and installation pieces. The show will also feature a retrospective body of work from the artist and the actual silkscreens and stencils used, showcasing an incredible journey of his 15 year career.
Shepard Fairey's 'Your Eyes Here' exhibition will not just be a historical overview of his works, but a dynamic up-to-the-moment showcase of his artistic evolution influenced by music, politics – peace and war – and environmental issues. The exhibition will survey the artist’s 25-year career, which includes paintings, screen prints, stencils, stickers, rubylith illustrations, collages, photographs, sculpture, and works on wood, metal, and canvas. Stay tuned for coverage from the show over the next few days.
'Wasted Youth' and 'Your Eyes Here' will be on show from the 27th June until the 27th of September 2015.
