SPOTHUNTERS brings together Shepard Fairey, Greg Lamarche, Caleb Neelon, and Monster Project- artists who each work in street art, studio art,
and publishing as integral parts of their practices. The show title refers to each artist's relentless drive to find new means of presenting
their work- places and venues that are the "spots" to be "hunted." The SPOTHUNTERS artists have used the streets of Boston and beyond as host to their street art and graffiti. They have compiled and published their works in magazine or book form, and they have worked extensively in studio and gallery artwork. Via the example of these four artists-drawn from four successive generations of graffiti and street art culture, the aim of SPOTHUNTERS is to show the interplay and the timely cultural relationship between street art, publishing, and studio art.
Caleb Neelon, organizer of Spothunters will be talking about the exhibition and the artists' work. Please join us and spread the word!
