We are currently piecing together a conference on street art and urbanism entitled Living Walls, The City Speaks. The idea is to put the work of a very small subset of the population (street artists, graffiti writers, etc), people who actually interact with space, under the same roof with people who spend their time in a discourse about public space. Our intentions are simply to broadcast to the attendees a wide spectrum of ideas about public space. We hope that everyone leaves the event looking at the city, its walls, and how we interact with space differently.
The conference will be split into a few components: a gallery show, a poster show, and a lecture series. For both the gallery and poster show we plan to bring in the works of an international selection of artists. These artists of course typically make use of the street as an outlet to showcase their work. For the gallery show each artist will be asked to submit some form of documentation of their other works and individual process along with their submission of artwork. We ask for this type of documentation in order to illustrate via pictures, video, sketches, written form, etc the scale and context in which the artist typically works in public space. The lecture series will not be composed solely of academics. We are seeking out anyone who makes use of space in an interesting way. The last component is documentation of the entire event. The entire show will be heavily documented in the hopes of one day publishing the work.
We would look forward to receive your submission.
We are calling for street artists to submit posters with no constraint on quantity or size.
Art work will be put up on various walls around the city of Atlanta.
All posters will be thoroughly documented with all artists credited.
Events will be scheduled locally around the city of Atlanta in order to give the public notice about the international poster exhibition which has taken place.
