ART IN THE STREETS/ Street art inside the MOCA . Los Angeles Ca.
It is the biggest thing to happen for Street Art in the artworld....EVER...
Top street artists, graffiti artists, photographers and more were invited to MOCA for the first major U.S museum survey of Graffiti and Street art. Here are a few images from the opening reception, kindly taken by THE HUNDREDS.
These images have left me speechless in the best possible way. Im just full of this sense of pride, Im so proud of the street artists, the art fans, and the curators that have brought Street art to this level.
ART IN THE STREETS- Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition will trace the development of graffiti and street art from the 1970s to the global movement it has become today, concentrating on key cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Sao Paulo, where a unique visual language or attitude has evolved. The exhibition will feature paintings, mixed media sculptures, and interactive installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists and will emphasize Los Angeles's role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to seminal local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture. A comprehensive timeline illustrated with artwork, photos, video, and ephemera will provide a historical context for the work.
