Dubbed the “largest American and European street art exhibition in New York,” local graffiti legends from the 70s and 80s will join European street artists of this century for the opening of “Whole In The Wall: 1970 – Now.” Curated by Parisian gallery owners Chantal and Brigitte Helenbeck, the more than 150 artworks, from artists such as BLADE, Lee Quinones, CRASH, DAZE, JONONE, Rammellzee, Blek le Rat, Banksy, and Jamel Shabazz, will be juxtaposed against a collection of centuries old French furniture and antiques. The exhibition opens tonight from 9 to midnight in the former Splashlight Studios at 529-535 West 35th Street, and is on view through June 27th. Additional video previews after the jump.
