Street Art is an ephemeral and often controversial form. This show collects photographs by Christopher Luna, Toni Luna, and Angst Gallery Director Leah Jackson of street art from around the world, including New York’s 5 Pointz, Argentina, Belgium, Costa Rica, France, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Venice, Italy.
Here are two articles about 5 Pointz, an iconic building for street artists in Long Island City that was whitewashed by developer Jerry Wolkoff in the middle of the night in November 2013, instigating a multimillion dollar lawsuit by 21 of the artists whose work was destroyed:
Angst Gallery showcases cultural events including art shows, musical performances, book launch parties, classes, workshops, and the monthly Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic. All art forms are valued. More than just a place to show art, Angst Gallery is also a safe space for community discussion, where all people are respected for who they are. We donate the use of the space to organizations that work for human rights and progressive social change such as Planned Parenthood, the YMCA/YWCA, Cascade AIDS Project, and the NAACP.
