Drawing the Line: A Group Art Exhibition
January 25 - March 2
Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College, in collaboration with the Queens College Art Center, is proud to present Drawing the Line, a group art exhibition that will take the viewer on an immersive experience of graffiti and street art culture in New York City from the 1980s to today.
The exhibition is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12PM-2PM. Guests can also book an appointment at www.unfamousny.com/drawingtheline.
The show will begin with the work of Henry Chalfant. A seasoned photographer, videographer, and documentary producer, and most notable for his work on graffiti, breakdance, and hip-hop culture. Chalfant has lent the Queens College Art Center a set of graffiti archives, which are a work of visual anthropology and one of the seminal documents of American popular culture in the late twentieth century. Representing the 1990s graffiti scene through the visual arts installations, Drawing the Line will include works by BG183 Tats Cru, Ghost Ris, Gouch, Part TDS and more. These older styles influenced the current, modern street art culture, which can be seen through the works of TurtleCaps, BelowKey, Chris RWK, and Matt Siren. The exhibition runs from January 25 through March 2, 2019.
