The Sketch exhibition developed by TAXIE GALLERY offers an unprecedented dive into the secret archives of graffiti-writing. Through an exceptional collection of more than 200 works, this event reveals a totally unknown practice of this movement: drawing, from the preparatory sketch to the work of art. Sketch, from 13 October 2021 to 30 January 2022.
Voluntarily referring only to the French school and contrary to the exhibitions proposed until now which reduce and categorize the only American school and its achievements, “Sketch, from the sketch to the graffiti” proposes a thorough reflection on the neglected passages of the history of the contemporary graffiti and shows the aesthetic richness carried by France since thirty years.
Spread over 200m2 received by FLUCTUART, the first floating urban art centre in the world, open to all disciplines of urban actors, the exhibition Sketch, from sketch to graffiti, divided into several chapters (history and influences, sketches, black-books, old and new schools) studies all aspects and media. Enriched with performances, in situ works, conferences, round tables, projections and homage, it offers an intimate, generous, rich and colourful dive into a still protected and preserved part of graffiti writing and the secret archives of its protagonists.
