Street Art Stories: BSA in conversation with Swoon and DAZE
Wednesday, March 2 at 6:30 pm
This program is currently sold out but enjoy a last chance to view Chris "Daze" Ellis: The City is My Muse at our closing party!
Ephemeral, often anonymous, and characterized by countless styles and techniques, street art appeals directly to passersby in often unexpected places, and on digital devices globally. Join for a conversation about the influence of the city on the storytelling of street artists and graffiti artists -- and how that influence is reflected in the work as it moves into galleries and museums.
Steven Harrington, Editor-in-Chief, and Jaime Rojo, Editor of Photography, founders of BrooklynStreetArt.com, which has been documenting street art around the world for nearly a decade.
DAZE, a graffiti and street artist in New York since the late 1970s, whose work is currently on view at the Museum in Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse.
Caledonia Curry (aka SWOON) exhibits her work at museums around the world. In 2014, she had a solo exhibition, Submerged Motherlands, at the Brooklyn Museum.
Public programming for Chris "DAZE" Ellis: The City is My Muse is co-sponsored by 12ozProphet, Ad Hoc Art, Art Crimes, Artists for Peace and Justice, the Design and Curatorial Studies Program at The New School, the Little Italy Street Art Project, the Street Art NYC Blog, the Type Directors Club, and Urban Folk Art ® Studios.
