Viewing the Emergent City and Its People

Art in the Street at MOCA.

Maybe we cant see this art in the street but we can view it digitally thanks to the WWW thanks to  Protein and the wonders of cloud computing

This April sees Los Angeles MOCA host Art in the Streets, an exhibition showcasing influential artists who have emerged from street culture in the context of contemporary art history. See the likes of Fab 5 FreddyLee Quiñones and Shepard Fairey as well as greats like Jean-Michel Basquiat and newcomer Blu. Covering the movement from 1970’s to present day and with dedicated sections to cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture, Art in the Streets highlights Los Angeles’ role in the evolution of street art. Alongside the exhibition see the Nike SB skate team hold demonstrations.

Art in the Streets runs from April 17 – August 8 2011 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.

    Pourquoi BLU n’est-il pas présent dans cette exposition ?
    L’art de la rue aurait-il des limites à la liberté d’expression ?
    Le marché de l’art aurait-il du mal à intégrer les œuvres productrices de sens, au-delà du convenu ?

    L’épisode de décembre 2010 au MOCA est vite évacué, je trouve …

    J’irai voir le travail de BLU dans les rues, gardez vos outils de spéculation au musée
    Pour plus d’infos, prochainement :
