Course Description: From illegally spray-painted stencils to secret exhibitions in abandoned warehouses to exclusive multi-million dollar art fairs, this course explores the rise of street art in the contemporary city. The course examines the diversity of artists, materials, and political impulses that drive street art and graffiti and its shift from an illicit subculture to a mainstream practice. Using examples from Melbourne and other key cities such as New York, Rome, and Berlin, the course investigates how the meaning and impact of street art derive from spatial and social contexts and how street art can provide new ways of understanding a city. It also covers broader debates about art, public space, and urban development. Students develop skills in identifying, mapping, and designing street art in Melbourne‚Äôs laneways.
