Urban Spree Galerie is proud to invite you to an exhibition and talk with London-based documentary photographer Marc Vallée on Friday 22 July 2016 at 20:00.
On the occasion of the release of his new photographic project and photozine « Vandals », Marc will show images that documents a small London graffiti crew in a city powered by neoliberal ideology and surveillance. The photographer is best known for exploring the tension between public and private space in the context of contemporary youth culture. The talk will be chaired by Berlin-based architect and professor Sandra Bartoli (http://buerofuerkonstruktivismus.de).
The work is visually polemic and rejects the notion of impartiality. Graffiti, defensible architecture, skateboarding and political dissent are just some of the subjects Marc has documented over a career of more then twenty years.
Marc’s pictures, zines and books have been published and exhibited worldwide. Both Tate Britain in London and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City hold his work in its library collections.
Marc’s other published zines (Tiergarten Transgression, Anti-Skateboarding Devices, Number Six, Writers…) will be available in the Urban Spree Bookshop.
