The focus for Voices 11 is to bridge the gallery with the streets, highlighting a once subversive art movement, and a unique set of artists—artists that want to speak to and engage with others; artists that want to make a statement and have the viewer bring their own experiences to the interpretation and understanding of their work.

Graffiti and street art are closely related contemporary art movements; however, they differ in terms of technique, function and intent. Street art adorns the urban landscape, and stretches the mind. It is additive, not destructive. It is about the viewer, the community and asks “have you thought about this?”. Street art demands skill, talent, passion and ingenuity.
