Southwest in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Brand New SW
Hirshhorn In The City
No Kings Collective, NoMüNoMü, and SUPERWAXX represent a new generation of artists that pushes the limits of art, brand, and community engagement. Saturating designs with their signature styles, pop culture references, logos, and text—including powerful personal messages—they create new platforms for creativity in the streets and galleries of the city. With posters wheat-pasted in various locations throughout Southwest DC, this project echoes guerilla art practices of the 1980s.
Brand New SW is part of Hirshhorn in the City, the Museum's initiative to bring contemporary art beyond the gallery walls and connect artists and curators with DC neighborhoods.
No Kings Collective
Brandon Hill and Peter Chang head this design-build studio creative agency. They focus on staying DIY, art-centric, cross-cultural, and adaptable while collaborating
An intersectional artist collective and curatorial platform cofounded by Joseph Orzal, NoMüNoMü works toward liberation from perpetual systems of oppression and class domination around the world. cargocollective.com/josephorzal
Best known for an aesthetic heavily influenced by animated cartoons, comic books, pop culture, and street art, SUPERWAXX uses her signature style to narrate historic or deeply personal events. superwaxx.com
This project is made possible by the Southwest Business Improvement District (SWBID) and the generosity of Max and Monique Burger, Burger Collection Hong Kong.
