DEEP SPACE EXHIBITION
JOSEPH NAHMAD CONTEMPORARY
FEATURING MATTA, RAMMELLZEE, FUTURA AND PHASE 2
CURATED BY NEMO LIBRIZZI AND JOSEPH NAHMAD
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC NOVEMBER 9TH – DECEMBER 12TH
450 WEST 14TH STREET
The opening of Joseph Nahmad Contemporary‘s Deep Space exhibition – an examination of “vernacular street art” from artists Matta, Rammellzee, Futura and Phase 2 took place on November 9th. With an extensive collection of artwork curated by Nemo Librizzi and Joseph Nahmad, the exhibition aims to examine the public’s understanding of street art through a historical and multi-generational lens, connecting the visual language of these four artists. Deep Space draws attention to the enormous similarities in style, technique, and intention between the work of Chilean-born artist Matta’s politically charged murals of the 1970s and that of the three New York City subway taggers of the 1980s. Accompanied by a full-length publication including essays from Justin Spring and Nemo Librizzi, this impressively curated showing will be open until December 12 in lower Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.
