Graham Coreil-Allen is a Baltimore-based interventionist public artist who explores the constructs and contradictions of our everyday built environment through videos, maps, installations and walking tours. Situated within invisible public spaces such as parking lots, median strips, riverbanks and corporate lobbies, Coreil-Allen’s ongoing New Public Sites project 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 staged projects for numerous art spaces and events both nationally and abroad, including the The Art Parade, Eyebeam and openhouseNY, all in New York City, as well as Washington DC’s Options ’09 Biennial, the Arlington Art Center in Virginia, Baltimore’s Artscape, Whartscape, Transmodern Festival, and Current Space, and in the US Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
