Longtime friends and fellow icons in graffiti art, Quiñones and Futura will discuss with Sirmans their experiences growing up during the unique moment that was New York in the 1980s, along with the city’s present art scene and other topics surrounding their friendship, artistic process, and studio practices.

Immediately following the talk, Futura will also release a special print (limited to 100 numbered editions) available exclusively through PAMM, which features a quote from the publication in the artist’s unmistakable style.
