Entrance through the Emergency Exit

Curated by Mike Chavez-Dawson
In an art world dominated by conceptualism, the exhibition pays tribute to ancient, old, contemporary and future self-expression, from the ancient cave paintings & the traditional African drum music, through the great masters of expressionism, to the contemporary subcultures, pop culture, street & digital art.
Street art manifested one of modern arts original quests, to break the barriers between fine art and day to day life. While readymade brought the 'real world' to the Museums and galleries, street art brought fine art to the street.
The exhibition is the neo:studioprize of neo:artprize 2013 judged by: Iain Andrews. Mike Chavez-Dawson, Laurie Peake and Paul Stopler.
The show was made possible with the kind support of the Embassy of Israel
