creating platforms for conversation and education

Hemi­spheric Conver­sa­tions: Urban Art Project (HCUAP, pronounced, “hiccup”) is an educa­tion and art program orga­nized by Caitlin Bruce, Oreen Cohen, and Shane Pilster in collab­o­ra­tion with the Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh. This project seeks to create plat­forms for conver­sa­tion and educa­tion about urban art produc­tion (graf­fiti, street art, and muralism, among other genres), and to explore aesthetic and histor­ical connec­tions between cities. These topics raise larger ques­tions about citi­zens’ power in shaping their envi­ron­ments; about the desired image of the city we would like to see; and about ques­tions of just devel­op­ment and commu­nity history and iden­tity. We use a combi­na­tion of public debates, symposia, youth art work­shops, short resi­den­cies, collab­o­ra­tive art produc­tion, and public-facing research to acti­vate such dialogues. Our first two years focused on the inter­cul­tural exchange between the post-indus­trial cities of Pitts­burgh, Chicago, and León Guana­juato Mexico.

 

All events are free and open to the public.
