Street Art

What happens when art enters public space and doesn’t ask permission?

Most of the examples we have identified as art for social change have been programs, events, organizations, etc. that, although they are radical forms of social protest, operate within society’s laws and limits to achieve their goal.

“Street art” (or “guerilla art”) refers to subversive public art that deliberately ignores government sanctioned arts policy and practice. How can street art enhance and/or diminish the possibility of social change?

Explore the possibilities of art for social change through the work of anonymous French street artist, JR, in his mission to TURN THE WORLD INSIDE OUT.
