Curated Screening of Street Art Classics at Superchief Gallery!
August 30 @ 8:00 pm - August 31 @ 12:00 am| $10
This Wednesday night, Superchief Gallery will be taking a more personal approach from the typical selection of fiery cult-classics by screening two prominent films made about street art, by street artists: “Public Discourse” by Brad Downey, Quenell Jones, and Tim Hansberry as well as “Open Air” by Lou J. Auguste – a film that’s takes its name from the open air philosophy of presenting art in a public and unmoderated space.
“Shot in the classic cinema verité style using compact mini-dv and video 8 cameras, Public Discourse follows the art-making from initial idea through to exhibition, capturing the artists’ private and personal moments of exuberance and regret. Public Discourse is about passionate artists who want their work to be seen by a wide range of people rather than be confined to the systemic structures of galleries and museums. This non-fiction film presents an in-depth study of the use of subversive messages, mimicking of advertising methods and the presentation of three-dimensional sculptures to the public.”
The screening kicks off at 8:00 p.m. and runs until midnight. Entry is free for Superchief Arts Club members and $10 at the door for non-members.
