Primary Projects launches its sophomore exhibition at its Design District gallery space.
Para Mi Gente opens at Primary Project Space on March 12, 2011.
This poster installation will be a collaborative effort featuring Shepard Fairey, Fred Snitzer and Tristan Eaton, to name a few.
Miami, FL (February 8, 2011) – Primary Flight interprets the designs and concepts of more than 50 local and international artists in Para Mi Gente, an exhibition inspired by the Chicha poster art of Peru. Translated as “for the people,” Para Mi Gente merges traditional Peruvian propaganda, contemporary art and graphic-driven installations. Participating artists such as Shepard Fairey, Tristan Eaton and gallerist Fred Snitzer have provided Primary Flight with vector images that will be cut into stencils and collaged together to generate one, fluid Chicha-style piece. This show is co-curated by Books IIII Bischof, Typoe and Chris Oh.
Slated to coincide with Second Saturday Art Walk on March 12, 2011, Para Mi Gente will be held at the 4,500-square-foot Primary Projects space (Atrium Building, 4141 Northeast Second Avenue, Suite 104, Design District). The exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be on view through April 2011.
