For the 7th year in a row, Nuart’s legendary Fight Club, is back.
Inspired by the original Greek Symposia, where debates took place fueled by copious amounts of wine. Nuart recreates the ambience of the original symposia by hosting a debate on a current hot topic in street art culture to be argued by two opposing teams made up of artists, academics and industry professionals. Who made the best case for their cause? You, the audience decide. For anyone who’s ever been to a conference and felt bored to distraction. For anyone who ever felt too inhibited to put their hand up during a Q&A. For anyone with an opinion about art in public space but without a platform to voice them. Fight Club is for you.
Evan Pricco (Managing Editor of Juxtapoz Magazine) and Dr. Susan Hansen (Department of Psychology at Middlesex University) go head-to-head to argue these points and more in the latest installment of Nuart’s legendary Fight Club. Refereed by Doug Gillen (Founder & Director, Fifth Wall TV)
Evan Pricco (US) is the founder and Managing Editor of the world’s leading international contemporary art magazine, Juxtapoz, based in San Francisco, California. Prior to starting Juxtapoz in 2006, Evan worked at SF-based gallery and apparel company, Upper Playground. He is the author of Juxtapoz’ continuing book series, including titles on Poster Art, Illustration, Handmade Art, and Contemporary Painting.
Susan Hansen (AU/UK) is Convenor of the Visual Methods Group and Chair of the Forensic Psychology Research Group in the Department of Psychology at Middlesex University, London; convenor of Art on the Streets, an annual symposium held at the Institute of Contemporary Art, and serves on the Editorial boards of the academic journals Street & Urban Creativity, and the Nuart Journal. Doug Gillen (UK) is the founder and Director of arts based media outlet Fifth Wall TV. Fifth Wall create and enhance projects based around art, culture and social movements, with a focus on documenting the Street Art scene in London and beyond.
