Graham Coreil-Allen is a Baltimore-based, interventionist public artist who explores the constructs and contradictions of our everyday built environment through videos, maps, public installations, words 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 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, Baltimore City, and the US Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
