Urban Myth and Crime and Charity


Two new exhibitions titled Urban Myth and Crime and Charity are opening this Saturday in Culver City’s Cerasoli Gallery. Cerasoli’s two front gallery spaces will contain Urban Myth a group exhibition curated by Inkie. The exhibition will feature thirteen UK-based street artists, including Mudwig, SHOK-1 and MauMau among others. Also on view will be a small solo exhibition by Australian artist Meggs titled Crime and Charity. Utilizing a framework of sequential art, Meggs creates a new hybrid of heroes and villains each subverted to reexamine the traditional notions of comic book iconography. The result is highly energetic albeit decomposing imagery that is as playful as it is violent.

Both exhibitions will be on view from July 11 – August 1st, 2009.
