NTWRK — Following the success of August’s inaugural Transfer virtual festival — announces a new art fair to close out its big 2020: “Beyond the Streets.” This two-day virtual art fair is a celebration of art, creativity, and pop-culture, shining a light on the most exciting and contemporary artists working today.
“BEYOND THE STREETS,” will be curated by Roger Gastman, founder of the 2018 and 2019 exhibitions Beyond the Streets (see NYT coverage), producer of the 2010 Academy Award nominated film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, and curator of the largest graffiti exhibition Art In the Streets (2011) at the MoCA in Los Angeles. The first round of artists confirmed to participate in “Beyond the Streets,” are Felipe Pantone, Mister Cartoon, DABSMYLA, Kenny Scharf, and The Rammellzee Estate.
“Beyond the Streets,” will feature exclusive drops and collaborations, thought-provoking discussions and panels, and digital installations. Whereas Transfer was focused more on music, design, and collectibles, “Beyond the Streets,” focuses on visual art.
“Beyond the Streets” will stream via the NTWRK app on Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6 with 50+ brands and artists dropping exclusive products on the platform throughout the two days.
“Art and design are a big part of NTWRK’s DNA and we’re very excited to be partnering with Roger Gastman on NTWRK’s first digital art fair: ‘Beyond the Streets,’” said NTWRK CEO Aaron Levant.
