AD ART SHOW is the newest groundbreaking art venture developed by MvVO ART, and the first art show to celebrate contemporary Artists in Advertising. AD ART SHOW will kick off with this lively art talk. Meet talented contemporary artists with roots in Advertising, as well as Art & Advertising personalities with a point of view; explore the permeable boundary between Art and Advertising — the industry that has nurtured many historic artists, including Warhol, Magritte, Lautrec, Rosenquist, Hopper, Rockwell; and explore the dual identities of Artists creating in both the Art and the Advertising world.

Is the next Andy Warhol creating iconic masterworks while working in Advertising?
Is a modern Magritte the art director behind the print ad that captures your attention?
Is there a new Rosenquist designing the graphic user interface for your next favorite app?
Is a 21st century Toulouse-Lautrec going home to paint after a day of graphic design?
Are advertising agencies unrecognized patrons of the arts?
Does advertising influence our fine art esthetic?
Are these creatives/artists stigmatized by their advertising day jobs?
Can these creative artists succeed in the Art world and get gallery representation?

AD ART SHOW will open Spring 2018 in New York City, to reveal and celebrate the personal body of artistic works by jury-vetted, contemporary artists from Advertising and an Advertising heritage. Will AD ART SHOW discover the next big name in Art?

This program has been made possible, in part, thanks to the generosity of
