Taking it to the street the art of public life
Taking it to the street: The Art of Public Life, curated by SASAI Founder Tanya Gershon, explores the role of the street performer in the construction of a vibrant public sphere in Johannesburg. Through their personal stories, spatial visualizations and data collection, the exhibition analyzes the obstacles these artists encounter to access public space. Gershon, developed this research on the spatial politics of the informal network of street performers in Johannesburg as part of her Masters Thesis at Columbia University. The exhibition included a street art installation by Nolan O. Dennis + Fuzzy Slipperz.
