Lecture program by Igor Ponosov "Art and the city: graffiti, street art, activism"
The project is by no means endowed with a pedagogical character. It is designed to fill the existing gaps, to reliably inform the audience about the history of street art, past important processes, events, as well as about today's trends, problems and questions around the phenomenon. The growing popularity of street art, public art, graffiti today, and the increasing number of practitioners and theorists, as well as interested observers and active producers, suggests that a controversial phenomenon has long required comprehensive study and open discussion.
Street artists, curators and art theorists will be involved in such study and discussion. The curator and teacher of the program is Igor Ponosov, a resident of the Factory, a street art researcher, author of books, and a practicing artist.
The first lecture of the course will take place on October 31 at 16:00. Read more
