Bicycle Art Exhibition at Space 15 Twenty
- Friday, September 30
- Space 15 Twenty
Cycling and art may be an unusual combination, but it’s definitely a relevant one right now. As the world searches for motorized travel alternatives, more and more people are embracing bicycles as a commuter friendly form of self-expression. There is less than one week left of the Push/Pull: Art and Cycling exhibit at Space 15 Twenty, on display in the gallery space through September 30th, 2011. This, Space 15 Twenty’s latest Pop Up Shop celebrates Commuter Month by featuring bicycle-related art from Michael Kim, Carly White, Dylan Haley, Asend TSF, and Aaron Kuehn.
Through his collection of newspaper clippings, Michael Kim highlights the bicycle as an accessory and point of commonality between human beings. His work has been published in his 48-page photo book, Bicycles. Additionally, works by graphic artist Dylan Haley (the man behind the VO Orange Bike Poster) will be on display, while Carly White’s poster-sized pieces are available for purchase. Asend TSF, described by the Melrose and Fairfax Blog as “one of the most tenacious street artists around,” graces the aficionado with some of his more fine art-style works. The typographic master Aaron Kuehn intrigues the eye with his bicycle typograms.
The gallery space is also displaying bicycles from Flying Pigeon Bicycle Shop, FreqntFlyr and Golden Saddle Cyclery. Quicksilver, the final film in Space 15 Twenty’s Commuter Series will be shown on Tuesday, September 27th at 7pm. The showing is free and open to the public. Also open to the public is the closing party for the exhibit, which takes place on Friday, September 30th, 2011 between 7pm and 10pm.
For those ready to embrace the bike as their method of transportation, the Bicycle Kitchen is a welcoming place to start. If you aren’t quite ready to make that commitment yet, reading The Urban Biking Handbook: the DIY Guide to Building, Rebuilding, Tinkering with, and Repairing your Bicycle for City Living is a great place to get inspired. The handbook is featured as Hennessy + Ingalls’ Book of the Month and is available at their location in Space 15 Twenty.
