NO AD – Jordan Seiler Interview

Off the back of his awesome bus-shelter keys initiative, PublicAdCampaign, Jordan Seiler is taking back the streets and taking on the ads in the virtual world as well as the physical. Pioneering the way for real-life ad blockers, Jordan has spent years researching and mapping out all the New York subway adverts so they can easily be digitally replaced by a carefully curated selection of art from over 50 (and growing) different international artists. We spoke to him to get the lowdown on his subversive new app: NO AD.

VNA recently teamed up with Robert Aloia and Suzuki Capital LLC to bring together a groupshow of epic proportions at a derelict police precinct in NYC.

The show will be in the old 21st Precinct police building, located on 327 East 22nd St. It was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.

ELLE x Martha Cooper – Unextinguished – Mecka Gallery

Prolific NY-based street artist ELLE has a joint show with Martha Cooper opening at Mecka Gallery, Brooklyn, on Saturday 26th April. The show is a collaborative effort involving some rare, unusual photos from Martha, combined with some heavyweight, multi-disciplinary artwork from ELLE. Expect fire-extinguisher mayhem, screen-printed paper catwalk dresses and poignant pictures of kids playing in the streets. We caught up with ELLE to chat about her artwork, inspirations and that awkward moment when your arresting officer asks you out on a date.
