Art Whino teams up with Crystal City BID and Vornado to present G-40: The Summit, a month-long exhibition and event series featuring more than 500 artists from around the world.

The mission of G40: The Summit is to bring the leaders of the New Brow genre together in Crystal City, in an effort to explore, discuss and grow this movement. G-40: The Summit will be a culmination of ideas and processes, brought together and highlighted by region and style, creating, for the first time, a full cross examination of this genre.

This event will feature 75,000 square feet of exhibition space with four floors of art. Each floor will represent different hot hubs of the New Brow movement: The D.C., New York, and California metro areas, plus one all-encompassing floor for international and other regional artists.

Visitors of G-40: The Summit will, for the first time, be able to experience entire floors showcasing artists from these regions, and because of this set up, connect the dots of how the different sub-cultures and environs affect the art. From the laid back California Style, to the fast-paced New York way of living, the art will bring a fresh visual perspective that words cannot provide.

Each floor will have 10-30 "Showcased artists" who will activate the space with murals and installations, helping to set the mood for their region. In addition to the showcased artists, there will be an additional 50-100 region specific artists exhibited on each floor. The show will run for a month. During the month there will be musical and visual performances, lectures, and more.
