Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Greetings from New York City: Jonathan LeVine Gallery Visits Berlin, a group exhibition presented in association with Urban Nation as part of their ongoing series, Project M.
Urban Nation will be the first museum worldwide to exclusively collect and exhibit contemporary graffiti and street art. In anticipation of the museum opening, the organization has invited internationally acclaimed artists and curators to be a part of Project M, an ongoing art initiative with the goal of promoting community and creative exchange. The three aspects of Project M include a group exhibition, a mural and ten paintings placed in the window panels of the institution.
Greetings from New York City, curated by Jonathan LeVine, will be the sixth installment of Project M and includes work by twelve artists: AJ Fosik, DALeast, Dan Witz, EVOL, Faile, Gary Baseman, Jeff Soto, Kevin Cyr, Nychos, Olek, Saner and Tara McPherson.
Six of the artists exhibiting in Greetings from New York City will also have the opportunity to travel to Berlin. DALeast will paint a large-scale mural on the façade of Urban Nation. Dan Witz, Jeff Soto, Nychos, Olek and Saner will create new works on 10×10 foot panels, which will then be placed in windows on the ground floor of Urban Nation. These pieces will be visible to the general public and become part of the future museum’s permanent collection after the exhibition closes.
