How do you understand the place in which you live: the architecture, the cultural hub and the inhabitants?
A group of more than 50 international street and graffiti artists has depicted their unique take on the urban landscape in a new exhibition from Somerset House – in association with collaborative arts organisation A(by)P – called ‘Mapping the City’, including Shepard Fairey, Aryz and Swoon.
It will feature a series of cartographic representations of the artists’ chosen cities from all over the world, including Berlin (pictured). A series of film and music evenings, artists talks, performances and interactive workshops are all planned to run alongside 'Mapping the City' to inspire visitors to re-evaluate their own relationship to their cities.
‘Mapping the City’ is at Somerset House, London, from 22 January–15 February, free admission
