18Aug06

During the Brooklyn Museum’s Graffiti exhibition (June 30 – September 3), the Museum asks visitors to contribute designs and drawings, inspired by works in Graffiti, to a designated gallery wall.

There’s an interesting, but very theoretical, article on Graffiti here. It poses questions such as “How has the meaning and significance of graffiti changed since the aesthetic has become more accepted and commodified?”

In the article, the writer speaks with Hugo Martinez, who helped to shape the development of New York’s graffiti scene in the 1970s. He will be speaking live on their forum on Tuesday 21st at 2am (he’s in New York!).
