Graffiti South Africa, in association with The Bioscope Independent Cinema, presents Street Art Cinemart - a Graffiti and Street Art Affair.
A boutique event which promises to deliver exciting local and international graffiti and street art content. Curated by Cale Waddacor, author of South Africa’s first graffiti and street art book, Graffiti South Africa, the multi-faceted event will run throughout the day.
Expect books, zines, group exhibition, live painting, walking tours and film screenings. Screenings include brothers Mook Lion and Samora Chapman's Footnotes in the City. The documentary investigates the urban spaces that provide the context of street art, and the people that experience it. The brothers become invested in this form of cultural expression through their participation in hip hop culture and graffiti in Durban from the mid 2000s. Through this culture they developed an interest in exploring, actively participating and documenting their city of residence. There will also be a Q&A session with the film makers afterwards.
Other screenings include the Painting Cape Town premiere, where writer/director Katey Carson interivews writers from around the city with the help of Matthew Olckers, the creator of the original book that inspired the film. Another screening to look forward to is, Girl Power, a documentary that introduces you to female graffiti writers from fifteen cities around the world – from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Sydney, Biel, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, through Barcelona, all the way to New York.
This multi-dimensional event will take place at The Bioscope in Maboneng (JHB) on Saturday, 17 November 2018, from 11am. The exhibition has no cover charge, but there are admission fees for the film screenings and street art walking tours.
