What is behind one of the most vibrant, vital contemporary art currents that is sweeping through our time?
Conversations delves into the multiplicity of street art and its evolution over the last four decades as a global phenomenon, and looks at how it is transforming the way that the city is perceived and lived.
Held in conjunction with the opening of Art from the Streets, the programme explores the diversity of artistic expressions in response to our changing urban environment and some of the complex challenges inherent in facilitating and supporting them.
Session 1: Street Art and the Urban Imagination
