Jonathan Levine Gallery Presents: 10 Years of Wooster Collective

10 Years of Wooster Collective 2003—2013
a group exhibition curated by Marc & Sara Schiller


Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present 10 Years of Wooster Collective 2003—2013, a group exhibition curated by Marc & Sara Schiller, featuring works and site-specific installations by over fifty local and international artists in a temporary space located at: 525 West 22nd Street in Chelsea. In conjunction with the exhibition, a number of participating artists will create public murals at various locations in Brooklyn.

After witnessing the rise of ephemeral art on the streets of New York City, Marc and Sara Schiller founded Wooster Collective in 2001 to document the ever-changing face of their downtown Manhattan neighborhood. In 2003, they started the website woostercollective.com out of a genuine desire to share these images with the world.

In the curators’ words: “While street artists express themselves in a myriad of ways, they are often joined by a set of common principles: reclaiming public space, beautifying the environment and fighting for the freedom of speech. Street art has become the catalyst for people of all cultural and economic backgrounds to challenge the system and express themselves without any filter.”

10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013 celebrates urban art and the diversity of creativity that has expanded internationally over the past decade. The work in this exhibition captures the energy and message of a group of artists who have grown along with Wooster Collective; having been featured on their website, exhibited in their monumental 11 Spring Street exhibition in 2006 and/or printed in the pages of Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art—a collaboration with art historian, Carlo McCormick, published by Taschen in 2010.

Marc and Sara Schiller have been avid supporters of the movement by acting as a mouthpiece to help artists promote their message to a wider audience through the global community, online. Ultimately, 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013 is a tribute to street art around the world and its transformative power.     


 

Exhibit is open August 7—24, 2013.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, August 7, 7—9pm
