—————————————————————————

Cella Satellite Galleries, is pleased to present Scaling the Wall. The exhibition features graffiti and graffiti-influenced works by a diverse group of writers and artists in California. Scaling the Wall comprises large-scale bombs by four of Southern California’s best female writers, and a white-wall display featuring six artists straddling the worlds of street and gallery institution, through various media.

Inspired by the groundbreaking MOCA street art retrospective, Art in the Streets, opening later this year, Scaling the Wall attempts to act as complement to Art in the Streets’ largely male roster of artists, while also discussing the complex and evolving relationship between street art and the arts institution.

Artists featured are PERL FDS, JERK, OPIA, KUTA ONE HEM BWS, ROOTSYSTM, ogdarthvader, LOVER ONE, C.1, PROTO and Alberto Aviles Molina. The bombs thrown up on bifurcated wood panels, will be auctioned on opening night, then divided into 4’x4’ art pieces at the close of the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit ArtStorm, an aerosol art non-profit organization that provides self-sustaining world-class Urban Art and LifeSkill programs for at-risk youth in Los Angeles.

SUPPORT THE ARTS!
