Street Art Stories with Steven Harrington & Jaime Rojo

« All Events

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 challenges of capturing this transient art form and the contested position of street art today with Steven Harrington and Jaime Rojo—authors, curators, and experts on the scene—who have been covering street art worldwide for nearly a decade on BrooklynStreetArt.com and in the Huffington Post. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse.
