Curator: RJ Rushmore

Curated by Vandalog Editor-in-chief RJ Rushmore on the 50th anniversary of modern graffiti, ALL BIG LETTERS approaches the medium as fundamentally entangled with its tools. Investigating graffiti as a site of stylistic innovation where the sense of place, the excitement of sport, and the search for fame intersect, the exhibition considers primary yet lingering questions about the medium: why does graffiti look like that, and why is it on my wall? ALL BIG LETTERS suggests that every aspect of graffiti can be understood as an effort to maximize reputation through novel uses of instruments and other innovations.

RJ Rushmore is a writer, curator, photographer, arts administrator, and critic with a focus on street art, graffiti, public art, and net art. He is passionate about promoting art that is disruptive in public space, on gallery walls, and online. By day, he is the Digital Marketing Manager at Creative Time. By night, he is Editor-in-Chief of the street art blog Vandalog.

Part of the John B.
