Kindergarten show

4th July, 2011

The Galleria Civica of Modena is hosting a brand new group exhibition, entitled “Kindergarten,” featuring work from graffiti legends including Futura, Mode 2, Os Gemeos, and Delta. Based around the idea of collective action, “Kindergarten” is intended to be a place for the exchange of sensibilities as well as an overall laboratory for children of all ages. The exhibition is scheduled to run from June 30 through September 18, 2011.
