Urban Art – Works from the Reinking Collection in Bremen, Germany
On May 16th, renowned German collector Rik Reinking will exhibit works from his extensive collection at the Weserburg Museum in Bremen, Germany.
Reinking has for many years now been accompanying numerous artists in the scene with great passion and intensity. His collection now includes representative works by some of the most influential protagonists. These include such well-known names as Banksy, Boxi, DAIM, Brad Downey, Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, and Zevs. The exhibition will be supplemented by several artistic stances and new works, which have in part been produced specifically for Bremen. In addition, artistic interventions are planned in the Hanseatic city’s public space. Thus the exhibition will not only afford insight into a still young, unusual collection, it is at the same time a venue for the most recent developments of non-conformist art form that is in a constant state of flux.
The exhibition will be supplemented by an attractive supporting program with workshops, walks through town, film evenings, and discussions and thus stimulate a lively as well as critical examination of the phenomenon of Urban Art.
A comprehensive catalogue of the exhibition will also be published.
