WRITE participates in the Tag Conference 2022

    In autumn 2022, WRITE Principal Investigator Adriana Iezzi will present her paper on “Tagging and Calligraphic Practice in Beijing’s Graffiti” at the Tag Conference 2022. In her presentation, she will analyze how the art of Chinese ancient calligraphy influences contemporary graffiti tagging in Beijing, focusing on the works of some of the most important Beijing crews/writers.   

    The Tag Conference is an international conference on contemporary tagging and its historical antecedents. The topic of the Tag Conference 2022 is “Tag: Name Writing in Public Space”.  

    This edition of the conference was originally scheduled to take place on 22 and 23 October 2020, but was then postponed to 2021 and then again to 2022.
