Graffiti/Post Graffiti Screening and Panel Discussion at the New Museum TONIGHT
Tonight, Thursday, October 4th 2012 at 7:00pm the New Museum of Contemporary Art will be screening Graffiti/Post Graffiti and having a panel discussion about it afterwards featuring Patti Astor, Fab Five Freddy, and Lady Pink, participants in Graffiti/Post Graffiti, as well as Marc H. Miller and Paul Tschinkel, co-directors of the video. In 1984, Paul Tschinkel’s ART/new york issued the documentary video Graffiti/Post Graffiti. The film captured a unique moment in the intertwined narratives of graffiti and art history, as aggressive anti-vandalism legislation and the lure of the marketplace brought/drew many artists off the street into the gallery. Through original interviews with artists (including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Rammellzee, and Lady Pink) and gallerists (including Patti Astor and Tony Shafrazi), Graffiti/Post Graffiti examines key individuals, exhibitions, and venues during this transition. The New Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 235 Bowery, New York, NY 10002.
