Magic City

Magic City kicks off today in the Kleine Olympiahalle. It’s a huge celebration of international street art, with some of the world’s best artists showing their work. Curated by the New York based culture critic Carlo McCormick and the LA-based Ethel Seno, the exhibition features graffiti, sculptures and installations from highly regarded artists.

Works from the likes of Banksy, Blek le Rat and Shepard Fairey will be on display, alongside Iranian artists Icy & Sot (originally from Tabriz, now living in the US), fun French artist OAKOAK, famed for playing with his surroundings, and pop art from the inimitable Ron English.

The sheer number of distinguished artists displaying their work is impressive, and alongside the exhibition, there are plenty of events tailored to the whole family.

The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday and runs until September 3 (when the artists will pack up and head to Stockholm, for the Swedish version of Magic City). Entrance for adults costs 14.90 € and kids above the age of six cost 7.90 €.
