CONTRIBUTION II. Urban contemporary art and new contemporary art in San Diego. February 2018
Contribution II is a continuation of the original exhibition, “Contribution”, presented in November 2016. The exhibition continues to examine artists who focus on an approach encompassing several artistic areas such as the street, the studio, in the gallery and institutions. The artists in this exhibition represent disciplines that are ever changing and morphing into new genre’s and trends. Working in a variety of interdisciplinary methods combining painting, illustration, 3D, installation and conceptual work, these artists produce art in a broad range of style, content and medium. The common thread that ties these artists together is the interest to experiment and cross over into other mediums, creating new hybrids and bridging the past with the present, leaving the future wide open.

CONTRIBUTION. Urban Contemporary Art In San Diego
City Gallery. San Diego City College 1508 C Street San Diego CA. 92101 RM. AH314 November 4th – December 15th 2016 Reception Date 11/4/2016 6-9pm.
Contribution is a group art exhibition which explores a global movement in contemporary art. Over the years the borders between contemporary art and urban art have become more and more blurred. The term “urban contemporary art” focuses on various creative areas such as the street, studio, gallery and institutions. Urban contemporary art describes a movement of artists working in the public arena and the studio. Often, this art form exists in the space between traditional contemporary art and traditional graffiti and street art, making it neither one, therefore a new genre has been born. While some of the artists in this exhibition have been creating and evolving for the past 3 decades, others are relatively new to the process. The range of style and use of medium is evidence that the artists are inspired to explore and experiment with art making from all horizons. This exhibition is not thought to be a definitive overview of all the artists working in San Diego today. Rather, it is designed only to represent a small cross section of active artists. Despite different styles, techniques, methods and generations, each artist in the exhibit is following his or her own unique path and along the way they are making a contribution to the current urban contemporary art scene in San Diego and beyond.
