In this spirit, we are thrilled to introduce the collaboration between STRAAT Museum and renowned artist and activist Shepard Fairey, in a project aptly named “Raise the Level.” This endeavor is brought to life through an extraordinary five-minute documentary that offers an intimate glimpse into Shepard Fairey’s creative process and his mission to use art as a catalyst for change.
The documentary, crafted by filmmaker Lidewij Hartog, follows Shepard Fairey during his visit to Amsterdam in August 2023. This visit marked a significant moment for Fairey, as he showcased his “Printed Matters: Raise the Level” exhibition at the STRAAT Gallery. But his contribution went beyond the gallery walls. Fairey left an indelible mark on the city by creating a monumental mural on the museum’s outdoor wall and adding a distinct artwork to the museum’s permanent collection.
STRAAT Museum proudly presents “Shepard Fairey: Raise the Level.” This documentary not only captures the essence of Fairey’s artistic journey in Amsterdam but also delves into the motivations and aspirations driving his art. Join us in experiencing the impact of Shepard Fairey’s work and his ongoing dedication to using art as a medium to inspire societal change.
