Posted September 30th, 2011 at 07:46pm by Risky
Last week, I went to Boston to participate in a lecture at the MFA. It was an honor and a pleasure. The panel consisted of Roger Gastman, author and associate curator of “Art in The Streets,” L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art, Jen Mergel, Senior curator of contemporary art Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Caleb Neelon, artist and author of The History of American Graffiti, and myself. We explored the history, from underground to mainstream, shifting perceptions of graffiti, from unpopular to popular, illegal to celebrated. I discussed my work, the evolution of Graffiti in L.A. and the world over. Following the panel we had a book signing where I had the opportunity to meet some local writers and discuss current graffiti issues. Thanks to everyone in Boston! GOODTIMES!!!!
