Lot F at The Umbrella Center for the Arts
January 7 – March 11, 2014
The urban art scene invades Concord in a new gallery exhibition at The Umbrella Center for the Arts. This show, which highlights the work of select artists from the Lot F Gallery in Newton, has an edgy quality often seen in everyday “street art.”
Graffiti can be defined as the defacing of public spaces with provocative and uncompromising commentary on political issues or through “tagging,” the term used for the marking of a name across public surfaces. Both styles have often been associated with gang cultures.
If a bit toned down from the in-your-face attitude that accompanies the well-recognized graffiti styles found in many urban neighborhoods, the gallery work remains highly representative of the candid, outspoken culture that has defined the art. Presenting the work in a gallery setting suggests that the viewer observe with artistic interpretation rather than a “street eye.”
Umbrella studio artists have also contributed to this show with an evolving untitled work on canvas that highlights the graffiti art style.
