"To playfully explore a thrilling urban sublime through drifting symbols of invisible sites this is why I make art."
Graham Coreil-Allen is a Baltimore based, interventionist public artist who explores the constructs and engages the contradictions of our everyday built environment through videos, maps, public installations, writing and walking tours. Situated within invisible public spaces such as parking lots, median strips, riverbanks and corporate lobbies, Coreil-Allen’s New Public Sites series playfully tests the boundaries of pedestrian agency, interprets the overlooked and banal, and investigates the negotiable nature of public space. The public artist studied at Tulane School of Architecture, completed his BA at New College of Florida and received his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art’s Mount Royal School of Art. Coreil-Allen has created temporary and permanent public art projects for numerous spaces, places and events; including the The Deitch/Creative Time Art Parade, Eyebeam, openhouseNY, Washington Project for the Arts, Arlington Art Center, Artscape, Transmodern Festival, Current Space, VisArts, Baltimore City, and the US Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.| grahamprojects.com | newpublicsites.org | #newpublicsites | @grahamprojects
