“Technically there’s probably not a “season” for graffiti. But springtime is close enough. “You definitely see more names start to show up on the wall once it starts to warm up,” said Evan Roth, a tagging connoiseur and a founder of Graffiti Research Lab. His group takes a more high-tech approach than popping open a can of spray paint: in one recent project it used lasers to tag structures, including the Brooklyn Bridge, above, remotely (and erase-ably). Other works include projectile LEDs and mobile street furniture; all are documented on its website, graffitiresearchlab.com, so others can copy its ideas.
…On Sunday, at the PopRally series at the MOMA, the group will screen its first film…
…On Friday, Shepard Fairey, the designer known for his Andre the Giant sticker brigade, will be the DJ at the Guggenheim for its First Friday’s party.
…Also on Friday, the Ad Hoc Art gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will open “The Threat of Chance,” in which taggers like Lady Pink are invited to bomb an installation in the space.
…On May 10 the Woodward Gallery on the Lower East Side will host the debut exhibits of Matt Siren and Darkcloud, known for their work on stop signs and outdoor ads.
…On May 27, the new documentary “Bomb-It,” about graffiti culture around the world, will be released on DVD. Until then just look around…”

PopRally invites you to a screening of Graffiti Research Lab: The Complete First Season, a film documenting the adventures of an architect and an engineer who quit their day jobs to develop high-tech tools for the art underground. Featuring insightful and humorous commentary by GRL founders James Powderly and Evan Roth, The Complete First Season argues for free speech in public, open source in pop culture, the hacker spirit in graffiti, and not asking permission in general. The film premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the Graffiti Research Lab and surprise guests.
Stay for the party afterwards, featuring music by Javelin and a final chance to see MoMA’s Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition, which includes the work of the GRL.
