Street Art Stories: BSA in conversation with Swoon and DAZE Wednesday, March 2 at 6:30 pm by Christopher Ellis

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.  

SPEAKERS

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.
