We are pleased to announce All City, a show that reflects on the layered graffiti scene from the 1970s and 1980s to today curated by Anne Huntington & Natalie Trainor. Once a sub-culture, the graffiti scene is now an art movement. All City includes contemporary and urban art, photography, hip hop, components from BMX, skateboarding, and surf cultures that speak volumes to the street and art communities. All City brings a select group of artists from these worlds.
Going “all city” means tagging all over – the five boroughs. Getting your tag on each subway line and each division, defining an identity. Much has remained the same since the film Style Wars debuted in 1984, but much has changed. The April group show, All City, manifests the solid energy of the scene highlighting the growth and dynamism of the movement by showcasing works in various media, art from the streets and defined by the streets.
