Icons of Urban Art


Client: Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA)

Function: Exhibition Design, Co-Curation, Production


The exhibition „Icons of Urban Art“ at the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) is an extensive exhibition featuring the most renowned street artist from Banksy to Shepard Fairy.

Yesterday as today, street artists use the urban infrastructure as a canvas to draw our attention to circumstances and grievances through their messages. They have a unique sense for ephemeral aesthetics and are considered pioneers of one of the most visionary art movements. Each of their works tells a story.
In the exhibition "Icons of Urban Art", the MUCA transfers street art into contemporary art and gives it a cultural memory. This thanks to impressive original works, including one of Banksy's largest oil paintings entitled "Are You Using That Chair?" - a subversive allegory to Edward Hopper's famous painting „Nighthawks"

The exhibition was on display from October 2020 to September 2022.
