Mapping The City
Somerset House presents Mapping The City, a contemporary cartographic art exhibition by over 50 international street and graffiti artists. Marking the first exhibition in the recently opened New Wing, which has been closed to the public for 150 years, Mapping the City brings to life the intimate relationship between cities and the street artists who make graffiti. Through producing their work on this living canvas, they come to understand and engage with urban landscape in unique ways. Curated by A(by)P, the exhibition showcases works by recognised artists such as Shepard Fairy, Swoon and Aryz, alongside rising stars from Australia to Argentina, Sweden to Spain and France to Finland.
