Premiering this Friday, 23 June 2006, with a party and art exhibit, Open Air is Alyssa Natches and Lou Auguste's documentary about contemporary street art that's over three years in the making. Featuring some of the more innovative street artists out there like Faile, Michael De Feo, Dan Witz, Skewville, and ESPO, the film addresses controversies over the use of public space and surveys some of the lesser known forms of "graffiti," including stencils, wheat pasting, concrete castings, wood installations, and other sculptural techniques. The accompanying show consists of plywood sheets installed in the gallery meant to duplicate the industrial sites that often become canvasses. WIth DJ sets by Saheer Umar (TokionFM) and Oja (Sunchild Productions) the event kicks off at 7:30pm at Stay Gold Gallery and runs through 9 July 2006. After the jump, check the flyer and more info.
