A community-based project called Graffiti in the Alley is being carried out at the ZeroStation gallery in Ho Chi Minh City from July 12 to August 7.
The art workshop and gallery will collaborate with Click 9, a graffiti team from HCMC, to use graffiti as a tool to awaken interaction between people living in the neighborhood where ZeroStation is located.
For nearly one month, the artists will draw graffiti continually on the wall of the site, creating a lively visual art space for the neighborhood and communicating directly with the residents.
During the event, there will be plenty of graffiti paintings to be drawn, erased and re-drawn, thereby emphasizing the ephemeral nature of street art practices.
The project is, therefore, not only based on the aesthetic object, but also on the relationship and the openness of dialogue.
ZeroStation, located in the heart of the city, is a large yard where kids play.
The art project at 288 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, Ward 8, District 3, welcomes people to visit anytime after 2 p.m. to watch, talk to and/or participate in drawing graffiti with artists.
