Let it Rain Umbrella Roadshow 2007
Let it Rain: The Umbrella Road Show
6th October 2007
The "Let it Rain" Umbrella roadshow 2007 is an initiative of the XStreets Collective, an artists' collaboration from Amsterdam and Basel. The curator is IvesOne from Amsterdam. The show is supported by the Blakkbyrd Blog.
An international selection of graffiti artists have created artworks using Umbrellas as canvas. The works were paraded throughout the streets of Amsterdam from the historic Waag in the Nieuwemarkt to the factory refurbished arts centre at the Westergasfabriek, on the 6th October 2007.
In November 2007 the Foamlab, a new arts group associated with the FOAM Museum, invited the show to participate in the Museumnight activities. Museumnight is an annual city wide festival where all the museums are open with nighttime activities and concerts.
Currently the Umbrellas are on exhibition at the Studioshop, in Amsterdam's centrum.
The Umbrella show will be repeated in 2008 with exhibitions planned for both Amsterdam and Basel.
