CEREMauthor aa.vv., publisher Yard Press, edition of 250 copies, 68 pp., size 17 x 24 cm, 2014

Ceremony is a selection of pictures taken by graffiti writers during the ’90s, the years when graffiti culture first started emerging in Rome. The publication is focused entirely on the social rite of graffiti writing, rather than on the artworks themselves. All the pictures were part of photo albums of Roman crews and writers and each page reveals something about the expeditions, the crews, the meetings and all other forms of activities that constitute the social ties within the writers’ community. Published on the occasion of the collective exhibition From Street to Art, that was hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute of New York. With an essay by Simone Pallotta.
