Street Art, Book Art follows on from 2014’s acclaimed Street Art, Fine Art—a collection of classic works of fine art reinterpreted by some of today’s most cutting-edge street artists—which will be published in a fully updated paperback edition in September 2015.
Following the acclaimed publication of 2014’s Street Art, Fine Art which documented the pioneering works and ethos of the Dulwich Outdoor Gallery project, 15 of the original 17 artists involved accepted the commission by its author and curator Ingrid Beazley to produce a series of unique artworks on copies of the book with blank covers. Some artists subverted the medium as a space to blend illustratively their style within the conventions of book design, some utilised the uniform shape to create a series of parallel works, whilst others approached the book as any other blank canvas presented to them on the street.
Street Art, Book Art catalogues in full the exhibition of these works in June 2015, and serves as unique document of a diverse and fascinating series of approaches to a single blank space.
Ingrid Beazley has worked in the education department of Dulwich Picture Gallery for over 15 years. Ingrid has won nine national and international awards for her work at Dulwich Picture Gallery including the Third Sector Excellence Award, ‘Volunteer of the Year’ in 2006.
