For their first show of 2020, Urban Spree Galerie presents « WALLS », a collective exhibition featuring 30 international artists.

Expanding the historical timeline and geographical scope beyond the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, “WALLS” explores the notion of the wall, from Antiquity to contemporary issues, viewed through the lens of artists committed to the public space and whose work is closely related to walls.

30 Artists: Alias, Andreas, Jim Avignon, Bault, Enki Bilal, Broken Fingaz Crew, Isaac Cordal (installation), Hendrik Czakainski, Christian Durieux, Philippe Écharoux (mapping installation), EVOL, Jean Faucheur, Flix, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, Miles Hyman, Kim Jung Gi, Levalet, Stéphane Levallois, Loustal, Marc-Antoine Mathieu, Mode2, Alexandra Novosseloff, Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Michal Škapa, Pen So, Thom Thom, Sam Tse, Santiago Valenzuela, Lars Wunderlich, Zevs.

Curated by Fabrice Douar and Cyrille Gouyette (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) and co-curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin), « WALLS » invites prominent artists from the comics and street art scenes to create graphic works of fiction related to walls, interpreted either as simple architectural elements, ominous symbols of segregation, canvases and vessels to convey meaning, textures, or imaginary playgrounds and labyrinths.
