May Lane, St Peters NSW,2044,Sydney,Australia
The May Lane Art Project focuses on using graffiti as public art to create dynamic spaces of creativity and interaction in an urban environment that has been neglected. It sees graffiti as a creative practice and notes the positive outcomes of government supported (welfarist) art/community programmes (e.g. developing interaction between citizens, using the creative instinct of graffiti writers in a constructive manner and keeping the youth away from crimes). It focuses on regeneration, community engagement and creating legal graffiti spaces.
The exhibition documents a range of street art styles: New York Graffiti, spray paint, paste ups and stencil, created at May Lane, St Peters, Sydney, by legendary Australian and international graffiti artists. The exhibition is supported by Visions of Australia, an Australian Government program supporting touring exhibitions by providing funding assistance for the development and touring of Australian cultural material across Australia.
