Opening on July 17, 2021, in Southampton, BEYOND THE STREETS on PAPER, is a new exhibition featuring over 500 works from over 100 artists. The exhibition brings together an alternative perspective on the shifting dialogues in contemporary art. Hosting the show is the Southampton Arts Center, a non-profit in an historic 150 year-old building with over 6,000 square feet of exhibition space and over three acres of grounds.

We are excited to share these 500 new works this summer in an immersive floor to ceiling environment complete with an entry installation painted directly on the walls by Steve ESPO Powers and drawing tables for guests to sit down and be creative.

Featuring over 100 artists who were trained in, and were inspired by graffiti, street art, hip-hop, punk rock, zines and underground art. The exhibition explores that, with a democratization of materials and surface, the intricateness of the ever-growing movement is both unique and revolutionary.

In the past, in two massive shows in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, BEYOND THE STREETS has helped create an entirely new historical lexicon for which to look at contemporary art. In our conversations with artists and friends over the last 16 months, a sentiment we continued to hear was both the desire to, and obligation, to create more intimate and immediate artwork. The idea of going back to the drawing board spawned this exhibition dedicated to paper. From emerging artists to some of the most influential names in art, this is about studying a centuries old practice and allowing the generations to speak to each other on equal ground.

BEYOND THE STREETS on PAPER will feature over 100 artists from around the world, some of which have never shown works on paper. The exhibition will be free and open to the public thanks in part to our partnership with Vistaprint, the design and marketing partner for small businesses around the world.

Additional support from Ingrid Arneberg and Will Marin
