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.



Sabaina Chagina’s presentation will take place tomorrow evening, March 2, 6-8 pm at 601B Pulitzer Hall at the Graduate School of Journalism, 2950 Broadway at 116th St.

FROM STREET TO ART, featuring a range of artwork by 10 contemporary Italian artists who’ve achieved recognition for their street art, continues through August 20. Curated by Simone Pallotta, the exhibit is housed in the elegant Italian Cultural Insititue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 – 4pm. Here is a sampling of the artwork that ranges from the imaginatively provocative to the wistfully lyrical:
