Digging this new work by Brazilian artist Yusk.
In the month of children, 4th to 24th of October, publisher Cosac Naify and Choque Cultural Gallery and Cultura Bookstore pay a deserved tribute to American pop artist Keith Haring, which influenced the contemporary generation of pop artists and helped to popularize street art around the world.
The window of the art store of the bookstore will earn a gallery look, with assistance from artists of Choque Cultural: MZK, Presto and SHN. To open the exhibition there will be a debate about urban art and legacy of Keith Haring.
Other gallery artists will interact with the proposals for Haring in their own copies of the book ” Nina’s Book of little things” , also exposed in the window. They are: Carla Barth, Carlos Dias, Jotapê, Mariana Martins, and Pjota Speto.
The book was a gift from Haring to Nina Clemente – daughter of Italian painter Francesco Clemente – in her seventh birthday (1988), the Brazilian edition carries on the back cover, an exclusive text by Nina herself, now 28 years old.
Check the video with one of the members of the group SHN doing their version of the sticker´s page of the book. AND LOOK WHO´S THERE SHOWING ITS FACE !
