Maxwell Colette Gallery and DB Burkeman are excited to present ‘STUCK UP: A Selected History of Alternative & Pop Culture Told Though Stickers.’ This museum-quality traveling exhibition, curated by Burkeman from his extensive personal collection, provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the expanding role that stickers have played in popular culture over the past four decades. ‘STUCK UP…’ features stickers from Street Art legends (Banksy, Barry McGee, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, KAWS), and internationally lauded contemporary artists (Andy Warhol, Jenny Holzer, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Tom Sachs) shown side by side with anonymous stickers peeled from the streets of NYC.

On Friday, January 20th Maxwell Colette Gallery and DB Burkeman will host the exhibition’s opening reception from 6pm – 10pm. Then on Saturday, January 21st the gallery will host a book signing from 1pm – 3pm featuring DB Burkeman and the celebrated photographer, author, and self- described sticker thief Martha Cooper. Concurrent with these happenings, the gallery will present a selection of sticker-based collage work from the ever-talented Chris Mendoza, and will showcase an incarnation of ‘Slap Happy’, the charity sticker invitational that made its debut as a part of SCOPE 2011 in Miami. This will be the only place outside of that art fair where the limited edition stickers and signed black books from the project will be available to view and purchase in person.
