Painting the Town: Reflections on Christchurch's Relationship with Urban Art...

PRESENTED ON JUN 01, 2018
IN CHRISTCHURCH @ VOL 35

Dr. Reuben Woods is an art historian and writer. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on street art and graffiti in post-earthquake Christchurch. Reuben believes that graffiti and street art have played a central role in the city's recovery and renewal. As a post-graduate in the Art History and Theory Department, he seeks to engage a wider audience with the city's intriguing and evolving relationship with urban art by exploring the various narratives and personalities that form these diverse cultures. Reuben also contributes to the website Watch This Space and hosts guided tours of the city's urban art.

In this talk, Reuben reflects on Christchurch’s relationship with street art that has emerged following devastating earthquakes. He tells us how street art can have a significant impact on the built environment and how Christchurch is a space for artists to respond and react.
