Wednesday, March 2 at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the City of New York
Ad Hoc Art is proud to be a co-sponsor of Street Art Stories: A conversation with Swoon and DAZE
Since graffiti emerged as a powerful form of self-expression on New York City streets in the 1970s, the city has grown into the epicenter of the contemporary street art movement. 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 us for a conversation about the influence of the city in the storytelling of street artists and graffiti artists and how that influence is reflected in the work as it moves into galleries and museums. This program is inspired by and delves into the themes of our exhibition Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse.
- DAZE, a major graffiti and street artist in New York since the late 1970s, whose work is currently on view at the Museum.
- Swoon, one of the Brooklyn’s most celebrated street artists, exhibits her work at museums around the world, including her 2014 exhibition, Submerged Motherlands, at the Brooklyn Museum.
- Steven Harrington and Jaime Rojo, founders of BrooklynStreetArt.com, have been documenting street art around the world for nearly a decade.
