Graffiti; an art form in its own right
How did graffiti appear ? At what point did it come to be considered an art form to study and keep ? These are some of the exciting questions addressed by the History(s) of Graffiti exhibition at the Château de Vincennes. A means of spontaneous expression, graffiti can be found throughout the city, from the walls of monuments to the corridors of the Metro, but it has also existed down through the centuries, as various places within the Château itself attest.
Graffiti has a universal dimension
Structured in five exciting parts, the History(s) of Graffiti exhibition clearly demonstrates the universal use of graffiti. An act of rebellion or an assertion of convictions, a desire to testify or silently challenge passers-by; these have all been aspects of graffiti, dating back to long before this mode of expression even had a name. The exhibition, of interest to both children and adults, is an ideal family outing.
