Street Art For Social Change With Hanif Kureshi
On June 7, our friends from Social Service Club are hosting a Salon at SPACE10 featuring Delhi-based rebel and street artist, Hanif Kureshi.
About Hanif Kureshi
Hanif’s work blends elements of art, typography and street culture to transcend socio-cultural barriers and embed art within the spaces we inhabit and engage with everyday. He is creative director and co-founder of St+art India Foundation, a non-profit that uses street art to drive social change by uplifting neighbourhoods and democratising culture.
His ongoing project, handpaintedtype.com attempts to conserve the vernacular street typography of India, creating an archive of the many-faceted typographic practise throughout the subcontinent. His work has been exhibited at the London Design Biennale, Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou Paris, Triennale Design Museum, Milan among others.
Come listen to his stories of working with sign painters, creating the St+art Foundation and their efforts of building permanent art districts across India.
Afterwards, join us for our Test Kitchen Friday Bar—we will celebrate Cauliflower season by lighting up the barbecue and serving ice cold beer and wine. Swing by for fun and tasty times.
