[São Paulo, Brazil] On January 19th 2008, Jonathan LeVine Gallery in association with Choque Cultural Gallery, presents: Made in America, a group exhibition featuring artwork by: Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Andrew Brandou, DALEK, Shepard Fairey, AJ Fosik, Camille Rose Garcia, MARS 1, Souther Salazar, SHAG and Jeff Soto. Continuing the conversation we began a year ago with Ruas De São Paulo : A Survey of Brazilian Street Art—which brought eight of São Paulo’s finest Street Artists to Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York—Made in America will be the return trip. Collaborating with Choque Cultural, Jonathan LeVine Gallery has invited a group of eleven North American artists to present their work to Brazilian audiences in the city of São Paulo, resuming the International exchange of artistic ideas and communication by coming full-circle on South American soil.
Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s goal in organizing this series of International exhibitions is to help create a visual dialogue within our global community, a creative exchange of ideas that transcend class and cultural differences, while crossing geographical borders. The objective is to promote freedom of expression through exposing new artwork to people in different cities, worldwide.
