SUSHISAMBA Presents “Graffiti Gone Global”, the largest exhibition of international street art in Miami.The exhibition is curated by James and Karla Murray, authors of best-selling titles Store Front — The Disappearing Face of New York, Miami Graffiti, Broken Windows and Burning New York.
Reaching beyond the typical white walls of an art fair, SUSHISAMBA has commissioned Miami-based architect HOX (Douglas Hoekzema) to design a sprawling, Brazilian-inspired favela structure for Graffiti Gone Global. HOX’s exhibition design consists of interlocking components of wood and steel that may be detached and sold as separate units, some of which will bear a signature graffiti piece.
