Exhibition Dates: June 23, 2014 (ongoing, billboard locations throughout L.A.) Panel Discussion With The Artist: Monday, June 30th, 7pm-1.30am

The Do Art Foundation, in collaboration with Art Share L.A., Ace Hotel Downtown L.A., & MOCA.TV, are immensely excited to present Art Above The Streets: An Evening With Robert Montgomery.

Renowned British text artist Robert Montgomery draws significantly from examples of mass communication & public interventionist strategy, to create powerful, achingly melancholic works, within the post-situationist & conceptual art traditions.

Often monochromatic, Montgomery's billboard compositions encompass fragments of memory & nostalgia, narrative & conjecture, dream & love, journey & revelation, yearning, & imagining. Considered works of welcomed intimacy & collective enquiry, Montgomery has held major exhibitions across Europe & Asia of his billboard poems, light installations, woodcuts, & watercolours.

Robert Montgomery was born in Scotland, in 1972. Studying at the Edinburgh College of Art & then within the core program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Montgomery has lived & worked in London, ever since 1999. He is also the publisher of British cultural magazine, Dazed & Confused.


Above The Streets: Robert Montgomery, is Montgomery’s inaugural Los Angeles exhibition, & is the largest public collection of his work to date. Montgomery has created fifteen new & original, site-specific works, which will be exhibited at assorted billboard locations, throughout the City Of Los Angeles. These will all be explored in a panel discussion between Montgomery & MOCA.TV Creative Director, Emma Reeves upstairs at Ace Hotel Downtown L.A.
