In 2009, the ICA debuted Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand, the first museum survey of street artist Shepard Fairey organized by guest curator Pedro Alonzo. Now, 15 years later, Alonzo returns to the galleries for a discussion on Fairey, whose work is currently on view in the exhibition Wordplay.

Alonzo will be joined by ICA Curator of Collections and co-curator of Wordplay, Erika Umali for a conversation about Fairey, and the use of text and language in contemporary art.
