A Campaign to Replace Public Ads with Art Lives on as a Book and an Exhibition #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

It’s been just over a year since the launch of Art in Ad Places, a guerrilla project to replace a small fraction of the flotsam of display advertising filling the New York cityscape with art. Now that the 52-week public service campaign has run its course, an exhibition of photographs of the public art project shot by street art photographer Luna Park, and an accompanying book, will ensure that the ephemeral project endures.

On Friday, January 26, Brooklyn gallery LUCAS LUCAS will host a book launch and exhibition opening for Art in Ad Places, complete with an installation by another artist famed for his ad takeovers, Jordan Seiler. The exhibition will continue through February 3, but Friday will be the first opportunity to get your hands on the Art in Ad Places book, featuring images of the surreptitious streetscape interventions — by artists including Kameelah Janan Rasheed, the Guerrilla Girls, Rebecca Morgan, Jamel Shabazz, Molly Crabapple, Jeffrey Gibson, and Shepard Fairey — photographed for posterity before they were replaced once again by advertising.
