In 2015, for the first time, graffiti culture has been officially part of the Venice Biennale, thanks to The Bridges of Graffiti exhibition (May 9th-November 22th 2015). Eron, Futura, Doze Green, Todd James, Jayone, Mode 2, Skki ©, Teach, Boris Tellegen and Zero-T worked together for the first time, next to Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper historical photographs and to a bookshow, which displays a large selection of books and fanzines documenting this culture through its many metamorphoses.
The catalog of this exhibition offers a complete overview on this project, from its premises and the choice to restore the San Basilio terminal, to a large selection of photographs documenting the work of the artists involved. Finally, a complete list of the books and fanzines showed would offer to anyone the chance to enhance his knowledge of this amazing street culture.
