Shepard Fairey Curates “Art Alliance: the Provocateurs” from 7/31 – 8/4

Art Alliance: the Provocateurs, curated by Shepard Fairey, will take place on Block 37 in Chicago during Lollapalooza between July 31st 2014-August 4th 2014. The art show will go beyond a typical art expo, fusing together interactive elements such as music, public art, panel discussion, charities, local community interests, and education, and making this exposition a magnet for drawing mass Chicagoan-attention to the arts.

Artists who’ll be present at the exhibition include Shepard Fairey, Swoon, HAZE, Space Invader, Dzine, Mark Mothersbaugh, Tim Armstrong, FAILE, Ryan McGinness, Winston Smith, RETNA, Stanley Donwood, Monica Canilao, Clare Rojas, Estevan Oriol, Evan Hecox, Gary Panter, Jen Stark, Camille Rose Garcia, Revok, Cleon Peterson, D*Face, WK Interact, and many others. Art Alliance will be equipped with live music, and will also host a Saturday night aftershow featuring a live set by Deltron 3030 and a set by Shepard himself, with tickets sold separately.

Single-Day Passes are available online for full access to over 40 famous street and contemporary artists for $10 per day. Walk-ins are welcome during all hours of the exhibition, specifically between the daytime hours of 10AM-6PM, and tickets purchased at the door sell for $12 each. Children are welcome for free with a ticket-holding adult.
