Curated by Miriam Arbus, this exhibition brings together images we see in our everyday life, on buildings, in the streets, altering our perception by placing the art against the white walls of a gallery.

The participating artists were asked to consider the affect of street art on the urban framework, to consider movement and gentrification in the city and the overall effect it has on our contemporary experiences.
