Calligraffiti 1984/2013
 curated by Leila Heller with Jeffrey Deitch

Leila Heller Gallery, 568 W25th St., NYC

Originally curated in 1984 by Jeffrey Deitch at Leila Heller’s former uptown gallery, Calligraffiti explored a myriad of possible connections shared between the seemingly disparate styles of select mid-century abstract, U.S. graffiti, and calligraphic artists from the Middle East and its diaspora. By presenting an expanded and updated roster of artists including site-specific installations by emerging and established artists 30 years later, Calligraffiti 1984/2013 re-examines the global impact of graffiti and calligraphy as converging modes of personal expression, popular culture, and political dissent mutually grounded in arrogating the systems of language. Featuring more than 50 works by artists ranging from Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner; Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Hossein Zenderoudi and Pouran Jinchi, the exhibition will also include site-specific installations by emerging and established artists such as eL Seed and LA2. - thru Oct 5
