The Exhibition – Birmingham Curzon Street Station, Round the Back A Rackhams 5/6-Sep-15 BCU Emma Love BSc (Hons) PGCE, Birmingham City University:”As part of my PhD by published route this is my first piece of work. The event takes place in the iconic Curzon Street Station building, New Canal Street (directly in front of Millennium Point) also.””Over the last eleven months much has been busily going on behind the scenes of Birmingham Graffiti. As part of an ongoing much bigger project I am very proud and delighted to be able to announce this first major event. The ‘Round the Back a Rackhams’ Exhibition is the first collection of original Old Skool Birmingham Graffiti work completed specifically for this exhibition. This is a unique opportunity to see the old tags reproduced by those originators, canvas’ of pieces and perhaps the only chance you will ever get to see some legendary names, many of which are embedded within the foundations of todays graffiti and hip hop culture not only in Birmingham but across the UK. This collective exhibition has also been submitted to Guinness World Records for consideration of achievement.”
