From the parking lots of 1970s New York to its rise as a worldwide phenomenon, City of Studio traces the global history of graffiti and street art. Pivotal artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat & FUTURA have paved the way for modern-day artists such as KAWS & AIKO. The exhibition will feature Basquiat’s Valentine (1984) on loan from collectors, alongside Untitled (1983) by Keith Haring & El Diablo (1985) by FUTURA. Do not miss this one-of-a-kind art exhibit that will be talked about for the time to come.

‘City As Studio is the most extensive exhibition on the history of street art to be presented. The exhibition features major works by the innovators in street art from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, São Paulo, Paris, and Tokyo. It provides an immersive introduction to this vital movement which continues to resonate today.’
