ART: ‘Write of Passage’ Wraps at Red Bull Studios New York
Red Bull Studios New York put its huge state-of-the-art space to good use during a six-week graffiti intensive dedicated solely to an oft-misunderstood element of Hip Hop culture with far-reaching influence. “Write of Passage,” open to the public every Saturday from Oct. 19-Nov. 23, covered a lot of ground with rare canvasses and pieces, educational workshops, special screenings, lectures and panels featuring veteran and emerging artists.
Sacha Jenkins, editorial director of Mass Appeal, curated this ambitious exhibition which also included graffiti writer mementos, interactive installations, subway artifacts (some tagged up) and select photos. Speaking of which, here’s a few shots from my recent visit.
