Internationally renowned graffiti artists, TATS CRU, will be the subject of a new exhibit at BronxArtSpace. It’ll kick off with a block party this Saturday, June 3rd and an artist talk and documentary screening on June 22nd.
The Art of TATS CRU will show a representation of past projects through photographs and videos produced by Miguel Teck Arteaga. There will be works on canvas by NICER, BIO, and BG183, and a new mural collaboration reproduced as a poster to commemorate the exhibition. “We are looking at a unique rise to art world success. It’s inspirational in that it illustrates that every artist doesn’t need to follow the standard, art school, gallery system, connection-based path,” says co-curator Eileen Walsh.
The Block Party will feature homegrown, Bronx entertainment. DJ Pusha will keep the party going, with additional dance performances by BBoy & Emcee Chief69, and Hip-Hop legend Rokafella’s Full Circle Souljah‘s dance troupe.
The exhibition for this event is sponsored by JCAL Development Group. Neighborhood businesses participating in the block party include ID Studio Theatre, Zaro’s Bakery, La Grata Italian Restaurant, Filtered Coffee, and Bronx Native. We are also happy to have the support of Port Morris Distillery and The Bronx Brewery. The Bronx Children Museum will host creative activities for children and families, and will have their museum on the Go Bus parked on the street outside the gallery. The event is free of charge and all are welcome.
