Come discuss the influence of art de rue on everyday French life. Who are some of the most famous French graffiti artists, dancers, parkour practitioners etc? How does street art intersect with sports and fashion? How does it compare to the urban art scene in the US? Join us to share some insights with Aurélien and his friend, a French graffiti artist who will offer awesome personal anecdotes!
About this series:
Lovers of street culture, here’s a workshop series made specifically for you! This is your chance to gain a better understanding of street culture in France, and explore its place within broader French culture. The series will cover three distinct but interlinked topics: French Hip Hop, street art and the film de banlieue genre. We’ll explore the birth and influences of the French Hip Hop scene, how street art became such an important part of French cities’ visual landscapes, and discuss some of the best films de banlieue and their social message. Joining us for each workshop will be a guest knowledgeable in the day’s topic.
* This class will take place online via the video conference platform ZOOM *
