Street Art Against Slavery

1_street_art_logo
Follow Your Art – Street Art Against Slavery’ aims to raise the profile of Anti-Slavery International through various events that incorporate urban and street art. The primary aim is to use the power and expression of street art to highlight the existence of slavery today. After all, modern day slavery is a complex issue and street art is steeped with a history of politics and protest which resonates with Anti-Slavery International.

Follow Your Art will feature street art from some of London’s most influential street artists including Remi Rough, James Jessop, RYCA, Dscreet , Pure Evil, Vinnie Nylon, Jo Peel, Benjamin Murphy as well as the premiere of a specially created edit of DOTS, an ongoing film project looking at the roots of graffiti and street art with a focus on the notoriously influential book Subway Art (1984). DOTS examines the ephemeral nature of the street art phenomenon and its role in the art world, featuring James Jessop and interviews with Eine, Miss Van, Os Gemeos, Blade, Futura, Conor Harrington, Dabs n Myla, Lister, Ron English and Kid Acne.

When: Wednesday 3rd April 2013, 8pm – 1am
Where: Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, LONDON, EC2A 3PQ

It aims to take art distribution out of galleries and into the streets, via direct delivery to the public in the style of American paperboys, and to broaden the public consciousness of both local and global artists and give artists a wider, more liberal venue to exhibit their work.
 
 
Papergirl was founded in Berlin in 2006 by Aisha Ronniger. The project sparked from the tightening of a German law that equated sticking up posters in public places with graffiti. Papergirl was Aisha’s response to the limitations brought on by the government as a new way to distribute art directly to society without violating laws.
