Sabina Chagina, the founder and organizer of Moscow’s massive Artmosphere Street Art Biennale, a city-wide program of international street art in Moscow, will speak tomorrow evening at Columbia University. In a presentation hosted the Harriman Institute and Causa Artium, Ms. Sabina Chagina — on her first visit to NYC — will address what it takes to make such a massive undertaking succeed in the unique context of the Russian capital, an unlikely setting for an inherently anti-establishment art form.

For the past several years, Sabina Chagina has brought dozens of first-rate street artists to Russia, where they work — along with local ones — both inside key venues and outside on the streets and walls of Moscow.
