TheGallery "Crossing the line - From Alley to Gallery"
Building on TheGallery’s text+ work philosophy, this publication moves beyond the conventional exhibition catalogue format and adds much greater depth to the subject of street and urban art. It explores issues of ownership, collecting, and the transition of a transgressive artform into an acceptable one.
It includes essays from Paul Gough and Sarah Newman, Museum Manager of the Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum in Bournemouth, excerpts from our Conversations event that opened the exhibition (led by Associate Professor Dominic Shepherd and Vincent Larkin) and an overview of the exhibition itself.
This collection of analytic and investigative writing continues to promote TheGallery as a forum for dialogue between innovative art in all its forms and its relevant theoretical contexts and histories.
By text + work, the Gallery, Arts University Bournemouth.
