Panel Discussion

On Graffitecture: Chicago Graffiti Artists Attack Photographic Spaces
Front Forty Press

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

Front Forty Press is Doug Fogelson, Dan De Los Monteros, and David Castillo. Describing their process as one of ?blind collaboration,? Front Forty Press recently invited a host of Chicago graffiti artists to work on top of photographs of architectural interiors and exteriors. The result is a very handsome, straightforward publication entitled Graffitecture: Chicago Graffiti Artists Attack Photographic Spaces. Featuring a range of styles and approaches, Graffitecture is at once a thoughtful, expressive and aggressive project that gives pause to the relationship between graffiti and architecture as it is mediated through photography. Please join us for a discussion with Front Forty as they discuss the development of this project.

This event is FREE and will take place in Cobb Hall Room 402, down the hall from the gallery.
