Lecture

For nearly 20 years, Roger Gastman has been at the cutting edge of the street culture and graffiti art movements. Gastman founded and published two of America’s most respected underground culture magazines: While You Were Sleeping and Swindle, and has produced over a dozen art books, including his upcoming project, History of American Graffiti (Harper Collins, 2011). He co-curated  MOCA’s upcoming exhibition, Art in the Streets, the first major museum retrospective of graffiti and street art, and was recently featured in Banksy’s documentary film, Exit Through the Gift Shop. A trusted mediator between the underground art scenes and mainstream culture, Gastman facilitated the donation of a piece by iconic Washington, DC graffiti artist, Danny Hogg “Cool Disco Dan,” which is now on view at the Corcoran. On this evening, Roger Gastman takes us through the underground world of graffiti and street art, and discusses the history of graffiti in DC. Tickets are $15, but members of the Corcoran Contemporaries receive a special discounted ticket rate of $10. For more information, log onto the Corcoran Roger Gastman page
