Red Bull Curates NYC

1

Red Bull Curates is one of the few corporately sponsored art events I really enjoy attending.   The massive amounts of free artisanal pizza and Tito’s Vodka mixed with blueberry flavored Red Bull probably account for a lot of that, but it’s also fun to mix and mingle with the street artists.

Judges walked around with clipboards and took notes, and the audience also had a vote, which they could text in their favorite artist.  The winners would be invited to Scope in Miami Basel, where they would be given a booth.  I wandered around taking pictures of the Red Bull coolers which the artists had painted / postered / and stenciled onto a week before, as well as any of the artists I could find or stumble into.

Of course a bunch of street artists like to be incognito, which I FUCKING DETEST, I don’t like taking pictures of Halloween masks and bandana faces- maybe it’s just me.
