Family Resemblance: The Evolution of Chicago-Style Graffiti Panel Discussion
This lecture and panel discussion will be part one of two panels. In this panel discussion and meet-and-greet, 1st generation Chicago Style graffiti writers EAST, FESS, ORKO, SLANG and TRIXTER will explore their histories and personal involvement with the development of Chicago graffiti in a discussion moderated by another 1st generation graffiti writer, NICK FURY. This conversation will touch on gentrification, violence, suppression, and gangs and will also examine graffiti as a spontaneous, healthy outlet that has developed into a worldwide phenomenon.
