David Lurie | WRITING THE CITY

 

23 June - 3 July

 

Hazard Gallery in association with Sulger-Buel Lovell is delighted to invite you to the preview of David Lurie's solo exhibition, Writing The City.

"I turn my attention to the...placards, banners, billboards, posters...which inform and direct us...All cities have been...full of public texts: all the signs of capital and commerce...indications of private property, and elements of systematic ordering and regulation...The public space of cities is constituted in important ways by these public texts...

 

However, in recent decades, new inscriptions in the forms of graffiti and murals have become omnipresent...As a result...public space has changed, exposing...tensions that constitute deeply unequal, albeit democratic, societies...these [tensions] are what interest me." 
David Lurie, Preface to Writing the City1
