For 24hrs in NYC, 17 local artists hit the city’s streets in the first artist-run, public exhibition of its kind, challenging the current model for “public” art museums by collectively working outside conventional exhibition spaces.

As expected within street art and graffiti culture, there would be no way of knowing how long each piece lasts in the wild — but for 24hrs, Cernesto, Clint Mario, Edapt, EKG, El Sol25, Enzo & Nio, FoxxFace, Jilly Ballistic, Mori, QRST, Rubin, Shin Shin, Sines, Wing and Wizard Skull turned the city into their very own public art museum.

As The Street Museum of Art returns to NYC for its 5th exhibition, they decided to do things a little differently this time around by putting the artists in charge.  Presented with only a deadline and one rule to keep the details of the exhibition a secret until the launch date, the artists acted as their own curators — taking the concept of the museum and letting it run wild in the streets.

Any piece pasted within the 5 boroughs, by any local artist — 24hrs in NYC became citywide public art experiment grounded on the artists’ reclamation of public space.

Rather than having the exhibition entirely in one person’s hands, 24hrs in NYC is a collection of work chosen amongst the local community of artists.

As each artist joined the project, it then became their turn to select the next artist they wanted to see involved —and so forth and so on — creating a public street art exhibition founded on the collaboration amongst like minded people working outside of the traditional art world in NYC.
