Burlesque of North America | Press Check @ The Seventh Letter

BRLSQ-flyer
BURLESQUE OF NORTH AMERICA

Burlesque is a multi-disciplinary creative studio focusing on graphic arts and high quality screenprinting. Headquartered in Minneapolis MN, the studio was formed in 2003 from the ashes of seminal and sardonic graffiti magazine Life Sucks Die. What began as a loose collective of graffiti artists, photographers, and illustrators transitioned into a group of graphic artists for hire including Wes Winship, Mike Davis, George Thompson, Todd Bratrud, and Aaron Horkey. While exploring effective DIY techniques for printing concert posters, Winship quickly found that screenprinting would also serve as a way to reproduce his and his friends’ other artwork, creating printed editions of art which could be sold at affordable prices.

After officially naming the studio Burlesque, the focus on screenprinting led the group to design and print concert posters while fine-tuning their skills and printing equipment with each project. As the workflow grew, so did the desire to learn more about all aspects of the screenprinting process. To this day, Burlesque continues to push the envelope by producing 10, 15, and even 20+ color screenprinted posters which capture astonishingly accurate details. In recent years, artists such as Ron English, Tara McPherson, Jim Phillips, Richey Beckett, and Tom Whalen have all sought out Burlesque for the screenprinted production of their artwork.

Press Check is a collection of screenprinted work spanning Burlesque’s entire career – from Wes Winship’s cut-and-paste Arcade Fire pastiche to Mike Davis’ clean but stylized vector illustrations to art prints produced for graffiti / graphic design icons 123Klan, renaissance draftsman Aaron Horkey, musician and fine artist John Baizley, Seventh Letter artists Sever, Ewok, and Vize, as well as work from David Choe, Ron English, Aaron Draplin, and more.

REVOK in Germany @ Ruttkowski;68

Revok is Jason Williams’s second show this year following an exhibition in Los Angeles with the same title. It refers to the concept of identity that he has been exploring since 1990, when he adopted the name as his alias after becoming dissatisfied by the expectations and connotations of social status.

At first, Jason used Revok as a pseudonym when he started out as a graffiti artist. For Jason, Revok generally is a frame within which he can define himself without social constraints.

While many former graffiti artists drop their pseudonyms when they enter the world of art, Jason refuses to let it go. In this way, his examination of the self continues. It has become a crucial part of his work, questioning the assimilations that we all engage in every day to reflect our opponents and circumstances.

For his Revok exhibition at Ruttkowski;68 gallery, Jason goes beyond the self to examine perceptions of consciousness and unconsciousness.

POST-GRAFFITI PACIFIC Curated by Olivia Laita

1

Post-Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists Askew One, Benjamin Work, Berst, Elliot Francis Stewart, Gary Silipa, Misery and Route52. As leaders of this new movement, they seek, in part, to organise the way we talk about urban contemporary art. As urban contemporary artists have evolved to straddle the divide between public and studio practice, terms like ‘graffiti’ and ‘street art’ have become insufficient to describe the activities and motivations of today’s urban artists. ‘Post-Graffiti’ is now a recognised term, used to describe the work of artists whose backgrounds in graffiti inform their professional artistic practice.

In embracing the concept of Post-Graffiti, and to further crystalise their roles in and relationships to the new urban contemporary art movement, the seven Post-Graffiti Pacific artists also use their work to emphasise their cultural backgrounds as New Zealanders. Through Post-Graffiti Pacific, they intend to platform themselves as representatives of Post-Graffiti artists who hail from the greater Pacific region.

Exhibition Continues 17 July – 23 August. 12-8pm Daily
