In rare instances, though, the mash-up can be positively innovative. Take Project Next Movement, a collaborative art project in which 10 photos of hip-hop band The Roots, shot by local photographer Sol.Exposure, are printed to canvas and painted over by urban artist Adam Dumper (a.k.a. Dumperfoo). The results retain the intimate nature of the images while imbuing them with Dumpers dynamic sense of action and color. The showcase, which is takes over 5 and 6 Gallery through May 19, will also feature a floor-to-ceiling mural designed by Dumperfoo.
An opening reception takes place at 7 p.m. Friday, May 6, at 7051 East Fifth Avenue in Scottsdale.
