Beat Streuli: New Street Birmingham 12

This limited edition print accompanies Beat Streuli’s Ikon exhibition New Street 21 November 2012 — 3 February 2013.

Beat Streuli emerged as an artist, internationally, during the 1990s, bringing with him a refreshing new outlook on the world, and this exhibition demonstrates his continuing importance. Streuli’s images of people from all walks of life create an informal street-wise reflection of our lives and times, characterised by cultural diversity: against blurred but distinct backdrops of different built environments we see smart-casual Euro types alongside Arabic women in hijabs, Indian women wrapped in saris, Hispanic teenagers in t-shirts and caps walking past Afro-American girls with braids. Everyone is purposeful, talking into mobile phones, waiting at traffic lights or crossing the street, taking photos, chatting with friends. Whilst the images are of different people in different places, together they reflect a globalised culture with a cosmopolitan mix, especially relevant for Birmingham.
