Can Unauthorized paintings realized in the public space, commonly considered as acts of vandalism, be recognized by a public institution and enter a collection of contemporary art, without being de-contextualized? Is it possible for writers and street artists who want to deal with galleries, to use the documentation of what has been done in the urban space without permission, rather than embarking on a course of study and working on classic supports such as canvases and papers?
Unauthorized // Commissioned, through essays by Pietro Rivasi and Andrea Baldini, as well as with the images of Zelle Asphaltkultur, Fra32 and Egs among others, investigates the complex relationship between urban art and institutions, taking as an example the experiences of “Icone” and “1984. Evoluzione e rigenerazione del writing”.
