Local heroes and global stars bomb “Mini Maxi Urban Art” Street Art event at GAMC, tonight, Sunday, October 6th


MINI MAXI URBAN ART is the title of a special evening devoted to the history of urban art or Street Art – in all its incarnations. It’s an evening of film projections and video installations and screenings of “historic” films – like 1983’s “Style Wars” and the 2007 “Bomb It” documentary, (posted below) taking place TONIGHT from 4 to 7pm at GAMC, Viareggio’s Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Lorenzo Viani .

Banksy, Thomas Campbell, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Keith Haring, Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Blek Le Rat, Barry McGee, and Taki 183 are the stars of the evening, which is curated by Gaia Querci and Vittore Baroni.

Five young artists, Duke1, Etnik, (whose piece is pictured above) Francesco Barbieri, Giulio Vesprini, and Macs, will exhibit projects especially conceived for the show.
