Graham Coreil-Allen is a multidisciplinary artist, activist, and resolute pedestrian. He’s an anarchist who wears a chipper pastel uniform and knows his way around Adobe CS. His works range in scope from redesigning crosswalks with hopscotch patterns to showing in the US pavilion at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. His current project with the Institute of Contemporary Art Baltimore SiteLines features a series of walking tours and an installation that’s transformed Current Gallery into something resembling an alternative tourist information center. We sat down to discuss the perils of cycling, the Situationist International, and the challenges of making work in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death in police custody.
