Future/Memory is a book about the exhibition with the same name, organized in Dresden, Germany at HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts Dresden, during the summer of 2013.
The book shows the nature of the work of artists like Boogie, Martha Cooper, Cody Hudson and Horfée – artists that all stems from, and get their inspiration from street culture and urban environment.
The artists express their creativity in different techniques and on different subjects. Wasted objects lying in the street are turned into sculptures; images of children playing in the Bronx are transformed into timeless testimonies of the 1980s. Graffiti are converted into abstract and conceptual art, and a blank wooden wall becomes a contemporary vision of an archaic altar.
Future/Memory condenses images of the past and the future taken from human urban surroundings and enlightens the importance of the artistic dialogues, their gestures and energy of street life.
Most of the exhibited works were created on site, ranging from painting, photography, sculpture, installations and conceptual art.
Future/Memory is an innovative and exciting dialogue between street culture and contemporary art featuring some of the most internationally renowned artists and photographers.
The artists featured in Future/Memory are Boogie, Martha Cooper, Horfée, Cody Hudson, HuskMitNavn, Cleon Peterson, Jay “One” Ramier, Skki and SuperBlast
