Urban Art Legends: A Conversation and Book Launch with DAZE, Alan KET & Nick Walker
Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 pm

In just forty years, what was once viewed as mindless vandalism – graffiti – has grown into a highly valued, socially relevant urban art form found in galleries and museums around the world—as well as on walls and trains. Join renowned graffiti artists Alan KET, Nick Walker, and DAZE, the star of our exhibition,Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse, to discuss KET’s new book, Urban Art Legends (2015), which explores the pioneering urban artists that have driven graffiti’s shift from underground into the mainstream. They will consider the contentious position of graffiti as an art form and explore their choices to challenge classical ideas of art through this uniquely urban medium.
