RISK : Pressurized Content presented by Bluecanvas

From the streets to the galleries, RISK has done it all…
As an artist in the 1980s, RISK pushed the limits of graffiti and gained notoriety not only for his unique style, but for being one of the first writers in Southern California to paint freight trains and freeway overpasses. RISK was responsible for importing New York’s Wild Style of graffiti to Los Angeles and combining it with his own aesthetic of lettering to create something entirely new.

. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets into the galleries and recently played a major role in MOCA’s groundbreaking Art in the Streets exhibition, which brought mainstream recognition to graffiti as a serious art medium. With a career spanning more than 30 years, RISK is continually evolving and pushing his personal limits as an artist. His story is a true testament that all artists must strive to break boundaries, and that anything can be accomplished if you are willing to take a risk.

The Other Cinema Presents La Haine

On the eve of the London mayoral election, The Other Cinema, from the creators of Secret Cinema, launched with an inspired free community screening of LA HAINE at the Broadwater Farm Community Centre in Tottenham, London.

As part of The Other Cinema network and tour, the production will travel from Broadwater Farm to The Troxy in Limehouse on 4th May, launch in outskirts of Paris, Saint-Ouen (free community screening) and conclude at Le Trianon in central Paris on 5th May where this production will close, the eve of the second round of the French presidential elections. Screenings are confirmed in 12 cities and towns in England and France from 2nd to 5th May, including Tallinn, Estonia.

Mathieu Kassovitz, Director of La Haine, said: “I’m proud and honored that LA HAINE after all these years is still a symbol of rebellion for old and new generations. The film’s impact is way beyond everything any director would hope for and the strength of Asian Dub Foundation’s music makes the film an interactive experience shared by audiences around the world. The choice of Tottenham for the first screening is a symbolic one; youth are still at lost in this globalized political world and don’t have any other voice to be heard than violence. Burning and looting is more than thieves stealing toasters. It’s the voice of the people that are at the lowest step of the ladder. It should be listened to with respect and intelligence and not simple accusations of ‘hoodlism’. I hope these screenings will help remember what we fight for. No justice. No peace.”
