Lecture About French Street Art at SU November 8

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---French street artists take center stage during the lecture “Drawn in Paris: Street Art and Gentrification in the City of Lights” 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 8 in Room 152 of Salisbury University’s Conway Hall.

Carole Salmon, professor of French and linguistics at Furman University, takes the audience on a virtual guided tour of various Parisian neighborhoods to discover the work of some preeminent French street artists, including Miss Tic, Space Invader, Intra Larue and Seth. 

Salmon looks back on the long-standing graffiti tradition to shed some light on today’s techniques and practices as seen on the walls of the French capital. She also reflects on the newly socioeconomic stakes of street art. Now becoming a lucrative touristic attraction, it recently has contributed to furthering Paris’ gentrification.

Co-sponsored by the Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies Department and Fulton Public Humanities Program, admission is free and the public is invited.

Those planning to park on campus must register in advance for a free parking pass.
