“Wallism” 墙壁艺术主义
Poster of the exhibition "Wallism" at island6 ShGarden
SYNOPSIS
“Art is an evolutionary act. The shape of art and its role in society is constantly changing. At no point is art static. There are no rules.”
-Raymond Salvatore Harmon
What is it that’s so captivating about great street art? Is it the scale? The often bright and bombastic color display? Maybe it’s the shock of seeing something out of place, illegally slashed on private property and wall space. Perhaps it’s all of these things and more. One thing that is certainly true though is this: the world of fine art has finally accepted this art form whole-heartedly into its galleries and museums. One of the problems though is how to display it in a way that maintains the art form’s integrity. How can you possibly show something that was meant to be temporary, illegal and anonymous? How much is lost in the process? A tiger in a zoo is no doubt an amazing thing to see but it would never compare to glimpsing one in the wild. Let’s propose a word for how galleries and exhibitors tackle this problem then: wallism.
