After the response to our recent exhibition, Subscription to Mischief, we’re keeping our doors open to the graffiti community. This research visit is open to anyone with an interest in graffiti writing. Led by our Curatorial Consultant Kel Troughton, you will have access to our rare books, magazines, and black-and-white zines covering decades of graffiti writing history.
