Mexican artists Smithe and Seher happened to coincide on their visits to Barcelona, and both got down to try the MTN Water Based 300. Our Montana Colors offices got turned into a improvised studio when the two artists experimented with the possibilities of water based aerosol paint. They themselves explain about their experience and the particularities around the functions of the Water Based in this really interesting edition of MTN Water Based Studio Works.

SAWE X THE ZOMBIE KIDS, THE WALL from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

In the beginning of October   Sawe surprised us all with his amazing video made in collaboration with   Tomás Peña for the music group   The Zombie Kids. But it doesn’t end there, and today we can present the second part of the matter. This is a supplementary video on the same theme, but about a mural he made, and it comes booming to the catchy track by TZK together with the same characters of the video animation. The truth is that it is a real pleasure to enjoy the combination of the good taste and solid skills this writer from Barcelona sits on.

Hi-ARTS and Carlos Mare Release Inside Out: The Peoples Art Project Inspired by World Renowned Photographer JR
- Uniting Spanish Harlem and South Dakota in a Cultural Exchange -

Address- 304 East 100st off 2nd Ave. from 6-8pm November 14th

New York, NY November 14, 2014 Today Hi-ARTS, a not for profit organization of arts and culture, announces their latest project Inside Out: Mi Gente/Oyáte kin The Peoples Art Project inspired by prolific photographer and TED prize winner JR. Hi-ARTS and Carlos Mare, their curatorial director, will follow in the worldwide participation with two photographers, Willi White of South Dakota and Peter Pabon of Spanish Harlem to capture portraits of their respective communities. The Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and Spanish Harlem in New York will showcase this public installation in a cultural gallery exchange transforming messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work.

Inside Out: The Peoples Art Project/Group Action is a global participatory photo program inspired by JR’s wish to change the world by celebrating the individuality of people in different communities. Black-and-white portraits are used to tell the story and are then shared with the public through large prints around 36 inches x 53 inches. Nearly 200,000 people from 112 countries and territories have participated in this groundbreaking event. Hi-ARTS is excited to take part in this global movement to tackle bold themes such as hope, diversity, and gender-based violence.

Hi-ARTS has partnered with two talented photographers, Native American Willi White of the Oglata Lakota Tribe and Peter Pabon of Spanish Harlem, to document their communities for Inside Out. The Oglata’s reservation of Pine Ridge is among the poorest of the 334 Indian reservations in the United States. The people face as much as 80 percent unemployment, a life expectancy of age 48, and a median income of $3,000 a year.
Both White and Pabon wanted to bring their love of the arts to their community, while helping and supporting the people. The photos were taken in September 2014 and are set to appear in two separate gallery openings this fall.

“We are thrilled to announce the opening of these two incredibly diverse exhibits. It has been an amazing experience working with Willi and Peter who have deep roots in their communities and were able to shine light on the people who live in them,” says Kamilah Forbes, Producing Artistic Director of Hi-ARTS.
The gallery opening at the Pine Ridge Reservation will take place on October 17th in South Dakota. The Spanish Harlem opening will be held at the Hi-ARTS Gallery and Artspace PS109 on November 14th.

Hi-ARTS is made possible through generous support from many organizations including the Ford Foundation, National Association of Latino Arts & Culture, New York State Council on the Arts, First Peoples Fund and individual supporters.

Posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window, to a wall of an abandoned building, or in a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and be made available online at The I.NSIDE OUT project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize.
