Welcome to BSA Images of the Week!
Leading up to Thanksgiving this Thursday, we can say that we are thankful to you for your support and encouragement. Thanks to the artists for the inspiring ideas and the loosely woven ecosystem that keeps them going – gallerists, festival organizers, brands, museums, curators, and fans. We’re happy to bring you more fresh stuff this week too.
The first female speaker of the House announced her retirement from the role this week – and it looks like both the House and Senate may be lead by Brooklynites if Hakeem Jefferies gets his wish. A new meaning, in that case, to ‘Brooklyn is in the house!’
This week has been busy with graffiti and street art events and announcements – many not related to Banksy! A new photography collective of heavy hitters in early NY hip hop/graffiti documentation announced themselves at the International Center for Photography (ICP), Swoon and Jeffery Deitch played to an overflow crowd for their talk at Deitch’s gallery to launch her second book, and Al Diaz curated and opened the new City of Kings: A History of New York City Graffiti – along with additional curation from graffiti archivist and artist Eric ‘DEAL CIA’ Felisbret and art educator Mariah Fox. On the west coast, people are talking about the new Beastie Boys show that’s curated by Roger Gastman and Beyond the Streets and which runs in December and January.
Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring: Stikki Peaches, Homesick, Drecks, Rime MSK, Bust Art, Le Crue, Sinclair, Duel1, La Nueva Era, Hugus, and Aine.
