The Art SocietyTalks

Doug Gillen: Hidden Canvasses: Street Art and the City

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governor's Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 

 

There’s more to the world of street art than Banksy. Hidden Canvases is a beginner’s guide to the biggest art movement since pop art.  From train writing in New York to interactive technology that brings murals to life, the concept of un-commissioned public art is a very different beast to that which it once was.  Hidden Canvases explores the key stages in street art’s growth examining the different elements and styles that comprise the scene with no rules.  From the international superstars to the local underground heroes you’re guaranteed to leave knowing your Invader from you Aryz and who knows you might even start looking at the world a little differently.
