Ben Long: The Great Travelling Art Exhibition

Not your average scrawled obscenity etched into the layer of dirt built-up from exhaust emission, Ben Long’s on-going series, The Great Travelling Art Exhibition is an instant winner. A graduate of Camberwell College of Art and Design in 2001 the project started shortly after and, as explained on Ben’s site, “by conceiving the project so that it may exist beyond the confines of the traditional gallery space, The Great Travelling Art Exhibition fulfilled Long’s desire to target and appeal to individuals unreceptive to the presentation of contemporary art in museums and art institutions.”
