Steven Matijcio, curator for the Contemporary Arts Center Cincinnati, talks about the traveling group exhibition “Buildering: Misbehaving the City,” which explores the ways artists are engaging with the urban environment and employing the city as a canvas beyond the usual tropes of graffiti and street art.
