The vibrant worlds of graffiti art, skateboarding, and hip-hop are vividly chronicled in the photography of Ari Marcopoulos. Three leading personalities from these different but overlapping scenes will converge at BAM for an expanded look at the photographer’s work. Following an illustrated presentation of his photographs, Marcopoulos will join New York–based hip-hop pioneer and historian and former graffiti artist Fred Brathwaite; skateboard legend Keith Hufnagel; and noted painter and graffiti artist Barry McGee in a freewheeling conversation that contextualizes the exhibition while exploring cultural intersections. The event takes place on November 8th, 2009 (3pm) at the UC Berkeley Art Museum.
