Harlan Levey Projects
Our international team of prominent artists, designers and curators are committed to projects that are relevant, socially engaging, committed to experience and united by a drive for subjective originality. Most have earned attention for illicit works and poignant interventions, as they investigated the use of public space: an exercise for testing the mechanisms of control in contemporary society and revealing personal and collective beauty.
Specialized in Mousse Art, HLP works with a broad range of talents to realize their projects and assist in the preservation of ephemeral intentions. The work offered by HLP walks the line between the conceptual and the figurative, the object and the action, the performance and the painting. The value may be in the doing, but the results promise longevity and engagement.
About Harlan Levey
Harlan Levey is the founder of the No New Enemies Network and the Editor-in-Chief/Creative Director of Modart Magazine, Europe’s leading core publication for emerging arts and the exploration of public creative practices. Since 2003, he has worked as an independent curator, art advisor and author for clients in both the public and private domains, developing a reputation for targeting relevant talent years before it comes of age.
Formerly a consultant to the European Commission, Mr. Levey studied Media Aesthetics with prominent thinkers such as Jean Baudrillard, Slavoj Zizek, Wolfgang Schirmacher and Yves-Alain Bois. At the same time, Mr. Levey was commissioned to write a documentary series on the Practice of Democracy in the United States. After two months and more than 60 interviews in Washington D.C., Boston and New York, he concluded that the nomadic and socially conscious artists he encountered in his travels, provided the most compelling practice of Democracy he could locate.
At that point he committed his energy to supporting this paperless community of bold creative talents.
