In Greece, graffiti emerged in the early 80s, in big and small cities, suburban neighborhoods and rural areas, coinciding chronologically with other European and American cities. In recent years, Greek street artists have been painstakingly recording and commenting upon the changes caused in Greek society by the financial crisis–both on personal and social levels through their art. At the same time, they join the larger international dialogue around political and social issues. The force of graffiti as a tool for activating the public's critical skills and awareness, the immediacy of its message, its easy free accessibility and transformative powers render it one of the most democratic artistic practices.

The exhibition In Broad Daylight features the work of Greek female street artists distinguished by both the quality of their work and their dynamic attitude towards freedom of expression. It includes artworks, audiovisual material, articles and books on Greek graffiti and is complemented by a series of public events, providing general information of Greek street art with the hope of arousing further interest in this scene's impressive diversity and social impact.

September 1 - October 13

Saturday, September 1, 5-8pm | Opening Reception

Organized by Cougar Vigil & Eva Mayhabal Davis

Cannupahanska Luger, Ginger Dunnill, Micah Wesley, Rory Wakemup, Matthew Tsoodle, Michael Twobulls, Marty Twobulls, Douglas Twobulls, Rose Simpson, Razelle Benally, Hoka Skenandore, April Holder, Jacinthe Yvonne LeCornu, Frank Buffalo Hyde, Dylan McLaughlin

This exhibition aims to contextualize the contemporary work of fifteen artists that represent various tribal nations. Formed in the mid-2000s, HUMBLE is an interdisciplinary art collective of students at the time studying at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexica. Today, members have continued their art practices, have furthered their studios, and continue to exhibit nationally and internationally.

In its time, HUMBLE functioned as a DIY art space and held numerous art shows, concerts, and late-night painting sessions. Although the collective ceased operations in 2010, the core mission continues to reflect on each independent practice. HUMBLE brought awareness to the underdeveloped area of southern Santa Fe and most importantly amplified underrepresented voices. Their accomplishments are exemplary in a time when culture is awakening and reconciling with the potential of art, community and history.

The purpose of this exhibit is to create a space that lauds these cultural producers, in a collective platform. It will establish a conversation with native artists residing and working in New York City and bring together a platform that breaks away at a too often homogenous voice of indigeneity.
