Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Arts Center is delighted to present Visual Slang 2009: The Modern Urban Imagination, the third in a series of cutting-edge global urban art exhibits.

Integral to contemporary urban art is an eclectic range of characters and creatures. Representing a broad spectrum of cultural heritages, the images presented in Visual Slang 2009 celebrate this aspect of the modern urban imagination.

Some of these characters are figurative; others are abstract. Some are easily recognizable icons; others are intentionally ambiguous. Some are whimsical in spirit; others are dark and unsettling. Whether drawn, painted or stenciled, all of these characters – from the personal to the political – exude a vibrant energy that is certain to captivate.

Among the images presented are: C215’s finely-detailed stencils inspired by his recent travels; Ame72’s iconic Lego man navigating his way in our nuclear age; Klone’s curious creatures that stalk the streets of Tel Aviv; Bastardilla’s shimmering lady that graces the walls of Bogota; A1one’s fanciful characters that evoke the cultural landscape of his native Tehran; and Shayne Bovell's apocalyptic figures that inhabit an alternate universe.

Other featured artists include: Sebastian Bagge, Cekis, Jason Cosme, Daniel Dover, Lorenzo Gomez, Joseph Knight, Malik, Alex White Mazzarella, Mefisto, Kenji Nakayama, David “Gaze” Pham, Julio R├Âlle, Adi Sened, Stinkfish, and Zero Cents. Among those artists representing NYC are: Bishop, Cern, Charm, Chris Cortes, Sien, Spaze Crafte One and Whisper.

Curated by Lois Stavsky with Jonathan Meres Cohen, Visual Slang 2009: The Modern Urban Imagination opens on June 25th with a reception from 6-8 p.m. and continues through August 14th.
