Multimedia Artist Ravi Zupa Announces Summer Exhibition Schedule

Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

Multimedia Artist Ravi Zupa today announced his summer schedule of solo and group exhibitions. On view will be a range of new works including Mightier Than, a series of found-object assemblages in which the artist transforms ordinary implements of language like typewriters and pen nibs into machine guns. Zupas work draws from diverse traditions to incorporate finely-wrought drawing, painting, collage, block print, and sculpture. Whichever [medium] Zupa uses, says Juxtapoz Magazine, the results look as if we are unearthing art from centuries ago, with an aged look mixed with contemporary iconography.



Shepard Fairey, who gained wide recognition for his iconic Obama campaign poster Hope, has since gone on to become an outspoken advocate for progressive and subversive art. With his exhibition Art Alliance: The Provocateurs, programmed through Lollapalooza 2014, Fairey has carefully selected a group of renowned artists from around the country whose work aligns with his DIY ethos and street-art aesthetic. The Provocateurs will feature a number of new works by Zupa, including the aforementioned Mightier Than, to receive its world premiere here. Art is increasingly about straddling worlds, says Fairey. That makes it a natural fit for music [the traditional staple of Lollapalooza programming]. Also on display will be other notable contemporary artists such as Mark Mothersbaugh, Swoon, and HAZE.

Address: 108 North State Street | Chicago, Illinois 60602 | 312.261.4700

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Sunday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
