Distinctly unique, Tel Aviv's street art represents a wide spectrum of cultural backgrounds and aesthetic sensibilities. Echoing the uncertainty that permeates Israel's daily existence, it possesses a rawness and energy found in few modern cities. Through more than 250 images, 14 artist profiles, and comprehensive research, Street Art Tel Aviv introduces the reader to an alternative visual culture that has developed and thrived at a time when the city's building exteriors are plentiful, and living and work spaces are still available to emerging artists. At the turn of the 21st century, Tel Aviv's gritty streets, particularly those in southern industrial neighborhoods, began to host a motley array of spectral faces, uncanny figures, and curious characters. Random graffiti, from scrawls on the walls to stylized letters, made their way into largely vacant spaces. Artistic renderings of band-aids, hearts, and eggplants evolved into iconic city images. Poetic expressions and musings--from the personal to the collective--surfaced increasingly on Tel Aviv's flat facades. And while much of what is painted directly onto the walls avoids commenting on the city's precarious political state, the stencils that continue to surface--often stealthily in the dark--alert us to the city's seemingly irresolvable, ever-present external and internal conflicts. Street Art Tel Aviv also gives entry into Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station, Israel's largest indoor urban art gallery. Showcasing murals in a diverse range of styles, painted directly onto its walls by local, national, and international artists since 2013, it is a favorite site for street art and contemporary art enthusiasts. Herewith the opportunity to explore this vibrant city's visual landscape at a time of transition for both the city itself and for this new visual art genre.

This thesis explores street art in Tel Aviv, Israel through anthropological concepts of value. By defining street art as an interstitial practice—one that exists between permeable, socially defined boundaries and is characterized differently by different power structures—I attempt to define some of the different regimes of value that apply to street art. Using the emerging market of “street art tours” as a fieldwork site, I look at how street art is presented and re-presented to both tourists and locals. By situating my research in a historical and geographic context, I hope to understand the ways different value schema, from economic to aesthetic to political and more, are overlaid in different ways by different actors onto the same works of art. I also address how these interstitial value schema, which can be contradictory and seemingly oppositional, interact within the systems of power that street art operates within. I argue that these power structures cause different actors in the street art world to privilege and prioritize different forms of valuation.

Art Out of the Ordinary You do not have to walk very far in any city today before seeing art plainly exhibited on the street. A building wall, sidewalk, traffic sign, or fence make an ideal canvas, transforming the urban landscape into an outdoor gallery. This art of the public space, widely referred to as graffiti or street art, has origins in the 1960s when it began as a subversive method of public communication for youth in Philadelphia and New York City. Over the last 40 years, a global phenomenon has taken over the streets of Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Toronto, London, São Palo, Madrid, Melbourne, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam, giving rise to one of contemporary art and culture's most important movements. This book presents a collection of photographs of art on the streets from around the world: New York City, Miami, Santa Fe, and Camden in the United States, Montreal and Toronto in Canada; Ravello and Siracusa in Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Tel Aviv and Acre in Israel, Luang Prabang, Laos; London, England; Casablanca and Essaouira in Morocco; and Amsterdam, Holland. The scope of these photographs presents graffiti, street art, and public art, as well as art simply put on public display. The geographical span coupled with the fact that many documented sites are not considered hotbeds for urban art production indicates the movement's global impact. Mediums range from graffiti, stencil art, and wheatpaste to site-specific installation and sculpture. Represented are the various categories used to label art on the street: illegal, commissioned, sanctioned, and unsanctioned. The highlighted works seem to be very different at first look, but there is a very strong bond connecting them. Each of these works presents us with art that is out of the ordinary.

Street Art in the Middle East

Since the 2011 Arab Spring street art has been a vehicle for political discourse in the Middle East, and has generated much discussion in both the popular media and academia. Yet, this conversation has generalised street art and identified it as a singular form with identical styles and objectives throughout the region. Street art's purpose is, however, defined by the socio-cultural circumstances of its production. Middle Eastern artists thus adopt distinctive methods in creating their individual work and responding to their individual environments. Here, in this new book, Sabrina De Turk employs rigorous visual analysis to explore the diversity of Middle Eastern street art and uses case studies of countries as varied as Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon, Palestine, Bahrain and Oman to illustrate how geographic specifics impact upon its function and aesthetic. Her book will be of significant interest to scholars specialising in art from the Middle East and North Africa and those who bring an interdisciplinary perspective to Middle East studies.

Re envisioning the Contemporary Art Canon

Re-envisioning the Contemporary Art Canon: Perspectives in a Global World seeks to dissect and interrogate the nature of the present-day art field, which has experienced dramatic shifts in the past 50 years. In discussions of the canon of art history, the notion of ‘inclusiveness’, both at the level of rhetoric and as a desired practice is on the rise and gradually replacing talk of ‘exclusion’, which dominated critiques of the canon up until two decades ago. The art field has dramatically, if insufficiently, changed in the half-century since the first protests and critiques of the exclusion of ‘others’ from the art canon. With increased globalization and shifting geopolitics, the art field is expanding beyond its Euro-American focus, as is particularly evident in the large-scale international biennales now held all over the globe. Are canons and counter-canons still relevant? Can they be re-envisioned rather than merely revised? Following an introduction that discusses these issues, thirteen newly commissioned essays present case studies of consecration in the contemporary art field, and three commissioned discussions present diverse positions on issues of the canon and consecration processes today. This volume will be of interest to instructors and students of contemporary art, art history, and museum and curatorial studies.

Santiago, with its deeply evolved and extremely active underground graffiti scene, bursts at the seams with an abundance of eye-popping, jaw-dropping murals. Stencil graffiti artist Lord K2 documents 14 neighborhoods within the capital of Chile with his arresting photography and intimate conversations with local artists. Through more than 200 images and 80 interviews, learn how street art was influenced by American, European, and Brazilian graffiti and how its evolution runs parallel to the political history of the nation itself. During the Cold War, nationalist muralist brigades spread socialist idealism through symbols of power and oppression. Santiago s repressed lower classes gradually usurped the art form, and murals eventually became a weapon of resistance. This vibrant city, with its array of distinct cultural districts, now invites you to experience its fascinating and tightly knit artistic community that has flourished since the fall of Pinochet s dictatorship in 1990."

Jewish Muslim Interactions

By exploring dynamic Jewish-Muslim interactions across North Africa and France through performance culture in the 20th and 21st centuries, we offer an alternative chronology and lens to a growing trend in media and scholarship that views these interactions primarily through conflict. Our volume interrogates interaction that crosses the genres of theatre, music, film, art, and stand-up, emphasising creative influence and artistic cooperation between performers from the Maghrib, with a focus on Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and diaspora communities, notably in France. The plays, songs, films, images, and comedy sketches that we analyse are multilingual, mixing not only with the former colonial language French, but also the rich diversity of indigenous Amazigh and Arabic languages. The volume includes contributions by scholars working across and beyond disciplinary boundaries through anthropology, ethnomusicology, history, sociology, and literature, engaging with postcolonial studies, memory studies, cultural studies, and French and Francophone studies. The first section examines accents, affiliations, and exchange, with an emphasis on aesthetics, familiarity, changing social roles, and cultural entrepreneurship. The second section shifts to consider departure and lingering presence through spectres and taboos, in its exploration of absence, influence, and elision. The volume concludes with a summary of contemporary debates and artistic co-production across North Africa and France.

Recent global events, including the ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings, Occupy movements and anti-austerity protests across Europe have renewed scholarly and public interest in collective action, protest strategies and activist subcultures. We know that social movements do not just contest and politicise culture, they create it too. However, scholars working within international politics and social movement studies have been relatively inattentive to the manifold political mediations of graffiti, muralism, street performance and other street art forms. Against this backdrop, this book explores the evolving political role of street art in Latin America during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. It examines the use, appropriation and reconfiguration of public spaces and political opportunities through street art forms, drawing on empirical work undertaken in Brazil, Bolivia and Argentina. Bringing together a range of insights from social movement studies, aesthetics and anthropology, the book highlights some of the difficulties in theorising and understanding the complex interplay between art and political practice. It seeks to explore 'what art can do' in protest, and in so doing, aims to provide a useful point of reference for students and scholars interested in political communication, culture and resistance. It will be of interest to students and scholars working in politics, international relations, political and cultural geography, Latin American studies, art, sociology and anthropology.

Graffiti and Street Art "I think graffiti writing is a way of defining what our generation is like. Excuse the French, we're not a bunch of p---- artists. Traditionally artists have been considered soft and mellow people, a little bit kooky. Maybe we're a little bit more like pirates that way. We defend our territory, whatever space we steal to paint on, we defend it fiercely." In 1993 in Singapore, after several expensive cars were spray-painted, the police arrested a student from the Singapore American School, Michael P. Fay, questioned him and subsequently charged him with vandalism. Fay pleaded guilty to vandalizing the car in addition to stealing road signs. Under the 1966 Vandalism Act of Singapore, originally passed to curb the spread of communist graffiti in Singapore, the court sentenced him to four months in jail, a fine of S$3,500 (US$2,233), and a caning. The New York Times ran several editorials and op-eds that condemned the punishment and called on the American public to flood the Singaporean embassy with protests. Although the Singapore government received many calls for clemency, Fay's caning took place in Singapore on 5 May 1994. Fay had originally received a sentence of six lashes of the cane, but the then President of Singapore Ong Teng Cheong agreed to reduce his caning sentence to four lashes. Tony Blair signed a charter which stated: Graffiti is not art, it's crime. On behalf of my constituents, I will do all I can to rid our community of this problem. However, in the last couple of years the British graffiti scene has been struck by self-titled 'art terrorist' Banksy, who has revolutionized the style of UK graffiti (bringing to the forefront stencils to aid the speed of painting) as well as the content; making his work largely satirical of the sociological state of cities, or the political climate of war, often using monkeys and rats as motifs.
