Storefront For Art And Architecture Presents "Painting Urbanism: Learning From Rio"

Storefront For Art & Architecture is currently exhibiting the work of Dutch artists Haas&Hahn in  “Painting Urbanism: Learning from Rio". The exhibition showcases paintings, documentary footage, photographs, sketches and plans of past, present and future projects developed by Haas&Hahn. Featured past projects include the Favelapaintings in Praça Cantão in Santa Marta and “Rio Cruzeiro” on the stairs of Rua Santa Helena all in Rio de Janeiro. Present projects include proposals for two New York interventions and future projects span throughout the world. Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to sit down and develop new proposals to add to the collection of visionary projects to transform the cities in which we live. All work produced throughout the exhibition will be compiled and catalogued.

Haas&Hahn is the working title of artistic duo Jeroen Koolhaas (audio-visual designer and illustrator) and Dre Urhahn (journalist/copywriter/art director). They started working together in 2005.
