Subliminal Projects is pleased to present The Versus Project IV, an international traveling group exhibition co-curated by the German artist duo Layer Cake, individually known as graffiti veterans Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark (C100).

Challenging the well-known Graffiti rule: “never paint over other writers,” Layer Cake invites the broader graffiti and street art community to do just that. Starting with a canvas, the duo creates an unfinished base that is then sent to a guest artist, beginning a non-verbal col- laborative process until the work is complete. The works result in layers of each artist’s contribution that both blend and highlight their personal styles.

“Working on The Versus Project is an experiment in uncompromising teamwork,” says the Layer Cake team. “Through the project, works have been created that would never have existed otherwise and represent a broadening of artistic boundaries for us and our guest artists.”

After two well-received exhibitions at Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art (UN) in Berlin in 2019 and 2022, and at the Museum of Graffiti in Miami earlier this year, “The Versus Project” makes its fourth stop at Subliminal Projects, continuing this experiment with the addition of new artists to the exhibition including gallery owner, artist Shepard Fairey. In conjunction with the opening reception, the gallery will host an Artist Talk with Layer Cake, featuring contributing artists Shepard Fairey and Chaz Bojórquez, moderated by Steven P. Harrington co-founder of Brooklyn Street Art.

CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS:

AKTE ONE, Bond Truluv, Carolina Falkholt, Chaz Bojórquez, Cren (Michel Cren Pietsch), CRYPTIK, Dave the Chimp, Flying Förtress, Formula76, HERA, HNRX, Layer Cake (Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark aka C100), MadC, MAMBO (Flavien Demarigny), Matthias Edlinger, Łukasz Habiera NAWER, Peter “Paid” Levine, Rocco & His Brothers, Shepard Fairey, Various and Gould, and Zepha (Vincent Abadie Hafez).
