The sculptures of REVS and MARE 139 incorporate immediate reference to spontaneity of the lines used in graffiti writing, along with the curves and crevices of the art form. CES and SHARP create Wild Style or intricate, expressive designs with letters that look like abstractions. In CES's paintings, his name appears always at the center of the canvas, while SHARP's style is baroque, expressive and dissolving into abstracted forms of letters forming spirals, circles and organic forms. CEY's pieces rely on the use of typography and layering by overlapping text. DR. REVOLT, EZO, KET and KLASS' paintings are inspired in the iconography of urban life, popular culture and market brands. Their works comment on urban and street life and street violence, with tones that range from humor to sarcasm, or by tapping into the subjective view of the urban condition and the urban landscape.

Batiste Madalena: Hand-Painted Film Posters for the Eastman Theatre, 1924–1928 - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 06, 2009 - Manhattan

Batiste Madalena (American, b. Italy, 1902–1988) was hired by George Eastman during the late period of silent cinema to design and hand-paint film posters for his theater in Rochester, NY -- at the time the third-largest cinema in the U.S. Working alone over a four-year period and against deadlines that required as many as eight new posters a week for each change of bill, Madalena created over 1,400 unique works before the end of his tenure, when the theater changed management. Approximately 250 of these posters survived when the artist himself rescued them from the trash behind the theater. Madalena's rediscovery in the 1980s brought his brilliantly colored, singular designs, done in tempera paint on illustration board, to the attention of critics and collectors, and soon made him one of the most celebrated advertising artists for moving pictures. This exhibition consists of fifty-three posters drawn from institutional and private collections and from the Museum's collection.
