In celebration of his new monograph, Covert to Overt: The Under/Overground Art of Shepard Fairey (Rizzoli), Shepard Fairey will speak with Chris Stein about the world of art and the art of the world. Fairey’s “Hope” poster, created during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, is arguably the most iconic American image since Uncle Sam. Fairey has become a pop-culture icon himself, though he has remained true to his street-art roots. Stein, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee best known as an innovative guitarist for Blondie and as a groundbreaking songwriter, has been equally passionate about, and devoted to photography.
Friday, Sept. 18th. 6:30-8PM at NeueHouse in NYC.
