11 Spring Book is Available to Pre-Order!

2016-10-05T17:24:28+00:00

Wooster Editions is pleased to announce the November 2016 release of ELEVEN SPRING: A CELEBRATION OF STREET ART If you've followed Wooster Collective over the years, you might remember a three-day event Marc and I curated in December of 2006 called Wooster on Spring. An unlikely group of nearly 100 street artists from all over the world came together to participate in an art show celebrating Eleven Spring Street, long a premiere destination on the international Street Art map. It featured artists including Shepard Fairey, Lady Pink, Swoon, D-Face, WK Interact and more (see a more complete list below). The result was a potent mix of artists who brought the street inside by re-claiming the walls for themselves, and a tipping point for what has become an international art world phenomenon. The three-day public viewing session was a landmark downtown event that drew crowds in the thousands, with people waiting up to five hours to get inside. All the works that were created for the show were subsequently covered up or destroyed by renovation. ELEVEN SPRING: A CELEBRATION OF STREET ART allows these vibrant works to live again, ready for a new generation of admirers to enjoy and celebrate. It is hard to believe how many years have passed, but Marc and I are thrilled to share this new project to commemorate the 10-Year Anniversary of such an important moment in Street Art history and in our own lives. With an Introduction by Shepard Fairey, an Afterword by JR, perspective from owner Caroline Cummings, and an essay from Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, the book will be released in two versions: a standard art book version; and five different Collector’s Editions signed by artists Shepard Fairey, JR, FAILE, and Swoon, and Wooster Collective. The Collector’s Edition comes in a custom bound case and includes a limited edition frameable print from the show’s opening. PRE-ORDER your discounted copy here.  The book will ship in the beginning of November 2016.   Artists covered the interior walls with their latest, most ambitious efforts, transforming a casual auld-lang-syne get-together into a state-of-the-art statement that ranged from classic tagging to new adventures in papering, printing, varnishing, installation and, in one impressive instance, crayon. There were lines around the block.  -Roberta Smith, The New York Times   A look insde...     Here's a sneak peak at the Collector's Edition.    We hope you all enjoy.    Cheers, Marc and Sara.   Artists in Eleven Spring Street: ABOVE, AIKO, Anthony Lister, Asbjorn Skou, Bast, Benjamin Kelley, Blek Le Rat, BO130, Borf, Che Jen, Chris Mendoza (Edec), Cycle, D*Face, Dan Witz, Darkclouds, David Choe, Davide Zucco, Daze, Diego Bergia (LEPOS), Dize, Don Leicht, Doze Green, DYM Crew, ELBOW-TOE (Brian Adam Douglas), El Celso, Elph, Evol, FAILE, Fenx, Gaetane Michaux, Gore.B, Graffiti Research Lab, Haculla, Howard Goldkrand, Imminent Disaster, Infinity, Invader, JACE, Jasmine Zimmerman, JMR, John Fekner, JR, Judith Supine, Jules Muck, Kenji Hirata, Kostas Seremetis, Lady Pink, Malcolm Stevenson (Dissolve), Max Rippon (RIPO), Maya Hayuk, MCA/Evil Design, Michael De Feo, microbo, Molly Prentiss, MOMO, Mr. Waldo, Nick Georgiou, Ori Carino, Parks Kid, Peat "EYEZ" Wollaeger, Percept, Plasma Slug, Postechild, Prune, Ralf/PISA73, Rene Gagnon, Richard Hambleton, Ruslan V.

Join Us for the NYC Premier of An Art that Nature Makes at the Film Forum

2016-08-08T17:10:28+00:00

If you follow Wooster Collective, you know we believe in the added value of art in our everyday world, and the important intersection of urbanization, decay, and art.

We would like to invite you to the opening of An Art that Nature Makes, the newest film acquired by sister company BOND/360 opening August 10th at Film Forum (209 West Houston Street). Filmmaker Molly Bernstein and subject Rosamund Purcell will be present for Q&As Wednesday and Friday screenings.

The film celebrates photographer Rosamund Purcell whose works are unbound by normality. "A collector of objects who is also deeply curious about the universal human urge to collect, Purcell and her obsessive eye are themselves difficult to classify. This blurry boundary is well captured by writer Jonathan Safran Foer when he asks: 'Is she an artist? A scholar? A documentarian? A living cabinet of wonders? Her originality defies category.'" (Yahoo! News)

About the Film

An Art that Nature Makes details Purcell’s fascination with the natural world – from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull – offering insight into her unique way of recontextualizing objects both ordinary and strange into sometimes disturbing but always breathtaking imagery.


Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed an oeuvre of work that has garnered international acclaim, graced the pages of National Geographic and over 20 published books, and has enlisted admirers such as Jonathan Safran Foer, Errol Morris and Stephen Jay Gould.

The Cuma Project

2016-08-01T15:11:40+00:00

Stinkfish collabs with Mazatl and Kill Joy in Honduras on the Cuma Project, an independent initiative in several rural communities in the western part of the country that borders El Salvador.

The goal of the project was to visit a variety of communities that have been affected by hydroelectricity. The artists completed a series of interventions on school facades and communal houses.

They worked with COPINH (The Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras), an organization devoted to the defense of the environment, the land, and the local indigenous culture, the Lenca.

 

Stinkfish on the Cuma Project:

"We met up in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. From there we took buses to La Esperanza, the Capital for the state of Intibucá and where the headquarters of COPINH are. Once we got settled in La Esperanza, we planned our work route for the following three weeks, so that we could visit certain communities as safely as possible and work on our interventions despite the heated environment, the constant harassment and threats after several confrontations with legitimate and illegitimate representatives of the hydroelectric corporations, and the assassination of Berta Cáceres (co-founder and leader of COPINH).

The following three weeks we had the opportunity to visit the communities of Llano Grande, La Ceibita, Las Delicias, Las Mesitas and Rio Blanco. In their majority communities that can only be accessed by foot, that ironically don't have electricity and limited means of communication.

The images that accompany these words are a brief summary of the experiences that we had in those days on the road, in communities that are committed to a struggle for their land, their rivers and their way of life, that shared with us a plate of food, a swim in the river, a soccer match, their experiences, history, knowledge, problems and victories.

The struggle and work of the likes of Berta Cáceres and organizations like COPINH lives on in Latin America and many other regions of the world."

2016-06-20T18:36:01+00:00

If you've been following Wooster Collective, you know that we love to honor guerilla textile artists. With our sister company, BOND/360, we've been lucky enough to acquire an amazing new film: YARN, that celebrates amazing textile artists.

The film opens this Friday June 24th at the IFC Center (323 Ave of the Americas) and we would love to see you there. Filmmaker Una Lorenzen will be present for Q&As opening weekend, moderated by VOGUE Knitting's Trisha Malcolm on Friday evening. 

Check out our new movie poster and trailer below!

 

About the film: 

Meet the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and into the world. Reinventing our relationship with this colorful tradition, YARN weaves together wool graffiti artists such as Olek, circus performers, and structural designers into a visually-striking look at the women who are making a creative stance while building one of modern art's hottest trends.

Stormie Mills in LA

Australian artist Stormie Mills creates characters that draw on profound senses of isolation and hope. On a monochromatic palette, black represents dirt, white speaks of erasure, grey is drawn from the cityscape, and silver the language of dreams. Check it out.

The Rainbow Road

2016-04-11T15:46:51+00:00

“Some colours for all the travellers: for joy and hope, for love and unity. More than a thousand tiles, all different but all the same“.

Mademoiselle Maurice is an established street artist who works mainly with origami and tiles, creating colourful spaces of abstractions in cities all around the world.

Her new mural, titled Rainbow Road covers platform 1 of the rail station in Maryland, London. It is composed with more than a thousand tiles, all hand painted with a rainbow colour palette.

The motif for the mural was inspired by Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot”, where two people wait endlessly in a station for someone who never arrives. The piece questions the importance – or unimportance – of time. Is time spent waiting meaningless?

With Rainbow Road Maurice wants to look at the tiles composing the mural as train passengers and dedicate her wall to them.

Slogan Art

2016-02-09T15:15:08+00:00

Irish writer and filmmaker Rockatansky grabs us with his slogan art, creating formal epigrams, slogans and commentary. His work (and writing) is about rebirth in one form or another.

In his own words:

"BUKOWSKI SPILLED HIS GUTS ON THE STREET FOR YOU.  BRING A SPOON ASSHOLE": My girlfriend hates this slogan, sees it as negative ... "Why are you calling people assholes?"  I don't see it as negative; I think it's funny and honest.  Really enjoy reading Bukowski.  He was no saint and I'm not glorifying his destructive and abusive ways.  Bukowski was in fact a writer who shared with us what he saw as beautiful and profound, but by and large, he did it by attacking what he hated; he did it that way to humour himself when life was humourless, to survive a horrific childhood, to survive alcoholism.  What remained, he loved.  If you disagree, read his poem "Nirvana" or listen to Tom Wait's spoken word version on his album, "Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards".  The slogan is saying: find the courage to admit just how ugly you get and work with it.  And until you see some gold, keep fighting, survive.

(image)

 

"WAITING FOR A MURDER": In an effort to pretty up their bus stops, the city put up all these ugly and meaningless plastic images of flowers.  I decided to give them some meaning.  It's about the street population: the insane, the dangerous, the addicted, the impoverished, and how amongst the gentrified streets of my neighborhood, in the cracks so to speak, there are violent attacks on a regular basis, violence which often goes unreported, let alone investigated.  So I saw this location as somewhere where a violent crime is just waiting to happen and that thought changed my relationship with my surroundings.

(image)

 

"FLOATING": Because we are, actually floating through time and space, ever so briefly; that's the ultimate trip, sober.  And what do I spend most of my time doing?  Managing fear, anxiety, anger, and managing it badly.  It's insane.  Now maybe that's not particularly inspired or interesting, an obvious thought to most, but I'm an alcoholic and addict in recovery; for people like me, it's not obvious and I must remind myself daily, that I'm more than the sum of my parts.
