Over 500 Artists on exhibit with a full month of musical and visual performances, lectures, live Painting and much more!
Art Whino teams up with Crystal City BID and Vornado to present the G-40: Art Summit, a month long exhibition and event series featuring over 500 artists from around the world.
The mission of the G40: Art Summit is to bring the leaders of the New Brow genre together in Crystal City, VA in an effort to explore, discuss and grow this movement. The G-40: Art Summit will be a culmination of ideas, processes and ideas, brought together and highlighted by region and style, creating, for the first time, a full cross examination of this genre.
This event will feature 80,000sqft of exhibition space with 4 floors of art! Each floor will represent different hot hubs of the New Brow movement: The DC, New York, and California metro areas, plus one all encompassing floor for international and other regional artists. Visitors of the G-40: Art Summit will, for the first time, be able to experience entire floors showcasing artists from these regions, and because of this set up, connect the dots of how the different sub-cultures and environs affect the art. From the laid back California Style, to the fast paced New York way of living, the art will bring a fresh visual perspective that words cannot provide. With all the different styles in one place the New Brow movement, now growing and expanding worldwide, will be more comprehensible to the viewer, finally defining the line between the movement’s beginnings to its future. A movement that currently exists without much literature or founding in “traditional” institutions, yet includes some of the most highly recognizable and sought after art in the world, will inevitably become a major player in the intellectual and mainstream art world.
Each floor will have 10-30 “Showcased artists” who will activate the space with murals and installations, helping to set the mood for their region. As well as the showcased artist we will have an additional 50-100 artists from that area on exhibit on each floor. The exhibit will be up for a month. During the month the exhibit will have musical and visual performances, lectures, and more. Also we will feature different art related groups and non-profits to help promote their mission and inspire ongoing conversations about the New Brow art world in DC and beyond.
