Craig Kraft: Markings Graffiti from the Ground Zero Blues Club Series

Loading Events

Gibbs Street Gallery

Curated by Claudia Rousseau, this is exhibit will feature a new series of work inspired by years of unrelated, overlapping graffiti on the walls of Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale Mississippi. The entire club is covered including, for example, lampshades, all of the woodwork, the felt on the pool table, and each slat on the window blinds. The years of overlapping graffiti tell stories of love, hate, exuberance and joy. Each mark is subject to an overlapping mark, until the messages become blurred and confused, only until someone makes an even bolder, broader mark, hiding the history below.
