Music and Art brand four three six, in association with local educator Baby People, are hosting an evening of Street Art and Music at Derby’s Quad arts centre later this month.
The event is centred around the screening of new documentary Wall Writers is a film about the early years of graffiti in New York. The film then becomes a talking point for a panel discussion moderated by four three six’s Andy McAllister. Panelists are Baby J from Baby People, Dilk1 – a street artist and owner of Nottingham’s Montana paint shop, and local artists Tim Onga and Sire. The topic of conversation is the evolution of street art from vandalism to gallery art, and the positive effects that it has on communities. The event concludes with music and drinks in Quad’s cafe bar, with a soundtrack chosen by those in attendance.
Street Art has come a long way since the 60s, but is still seen as vandalism by several people, By going deep behind the reasons and motivation of the artists, and following the progress of the legitimisation of the style, the event aims to leave everyone with a deeper understanding of street art, from tag to canvas.
The event is the opening event of the Derby Film Festival, and takes places at Quad on Friday April 28th at 6pm.
