HENRY CHALFANT’S FIRST U.S. MUSEUM RETROSPECTIVE
Help the Bronx Museum Recreate an Epicenter of Early NY Graffiti Art. Graffiti, as we know it today, was born in the Bronx, transforming the streets and subway trains of New York City almost overnight (literally). Henry Chalfant’s photographs and films, including his groundbreaking 1983 documentary Style Wars, immortalized this transient art form when it was still in its adolescence, and helped launch graffiti art into the international phenomenon it is now.
The Unlock Book Fair is the annual meeting of the international graffiti and street art publishing scene. Two days of publications, talks, launches and screenings
In 2019 the fair travels to Cologne after three instalments in Barcelona, Berlin and Amsterdam, and several offshoot events in cities across Europe. This year Unlock teams up with CityLeaks Urban Art Festival Cologne.
