Description

Co-Chairs:

Eno Laget, Independent Artist

Arturo Roldriguez, University of Toledo

Danielle C. Wycoff, Kendall College of Art and Design

Mariel Versluis, Kendall College of Art And Design

Artists have increasingly been described as the flying wedge of gentrification in post-industrial urban environments. Graffiti artists, street artists and fine art printmakers have been transforming the streets of major cities into public gallery spaces for many years.

Mainstream historical markers for this unauthorized and authorized activity range from Charlie Ahern's "Wild Style" hip-hop film (1982) to Banksy's "Exit Through the Gift Shop" street art film (2010)

This panel will discuss the social, political and commercial implications of the explosion of public art on the streets.

This discussion is designed to complement 3 different outdoor demonstrations of large-scale printing made for public display on the street. These collaborative demos are scheduled for Friday afternoon and will run concurrently.
