NXNE Art's theme, Art And Urbanism, is inspired by our rapidly changing cityscape. Curator Jacquelyn West of Hermann & Audrey (a creative agency that works with arts, community and philanthropic orgs) mixes local and international street artists, architects and interventionists with cycling advocates, graphic designers and creators of trippy light installations.
At the Art Lounge (363 King West), installations and videos by Mathew Borrett, David Spriggs, Partisan Projects/Norman Li and others contemplate scenarios of the future.
Street artists - including Toronto's Elicser, Spud1 and Jimmy Chiale and Brazil's Alex Senna - transform O'Keefe Lane, Queen West's Graffiti Alley and elsewhere for Urban Takeovers. En Masse, a collaborative drawing event by artists from Montreal, happens at a yet undisclosed location.
You can purchase NXNE artists' work and merchandise at the Art Outpost at Hermann & Audrey (1506 Dundas West).
Steve Carty's multi-site exhibit Life Cycles celebrates biking. Tour it with a map from Hermann & Audrey or join a Carty-led group ride on Saturday (June 21).
