What is the future of street art in New York? Come find out from Brooklyn Street Art founders Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo, who will be speaking at the Brooklyn Museum on Thursday, April 24th at 7p.m.
The conversation will include the evolution of street art stories as told by the earliest graffiti writers as well as today’s D.I.Y. artists. They will be joined by artists Luna Park and Swoon, whose site-specific installation Swoon: Submerged Motherlands will be on view from April 11 to August 24 at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery on the 5th floor.
In case you don’t know, Swoon is a Brooklyn-based street artist who is best known for her intricately designed wheat-paste prints that can still be found peppered throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan and around the world. She has expanded her repertoire to installation pieces, which I expect will be as beautiful as her wheat-paste works.
A reception with DJ, cash bar and a street art-making project will follow. Tickets: $12 and include Museum general admission; free to Members.
