  • How does street art relate to other “post-museum” and “post-studio” art forms?
  • Is street art essentially site-specific? What are the implications for the restoration or conservation of works of street art?
  • Is there such a thing as a street art “aesthetic”? What constitutes authenticity instreet art?
  • Does legality/criminality (e.g., vandalism, trespassing, copyright, etc.) play an aesthetic or art-making role for works of street art?
  • Do municipalities incur obligations (aesthetic or otherwise) to preserve works of street art?
  • How do matters of race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. figure differently within the world of street art as compared to the traditional artworld?
  • What exactly is “the street” as employed in thought and talk about street art?
