VICE today announces a new public art project in the heart of Williamsburg by acclaimed artists, FAILE, commissioned by VICE and 42Below. In celebration of the new piece, titled “104 N. 7th,” VICE and 42Below will host a huge party at Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel on April 26th, showcasing works from FAILE’s repertoire of acclaimed art. The party will also screen Art Talk – FAILE, a short documentary by VICE that follows the creative process of the artists during the making of “104 N. 7th,” and their Brooklyn roots.
FAILE’S artwork “104 N. 7th” is a new a project that covers an entire building facade with intricately hand-painted, sculpted ceramic tiles. “104 N. 7th” is a natural outgrowth of FAILE’s previous works on wood and canvas, but also a step forward—street art transmuted by the studio and redeployed on the artists’ home turf.
