On May 6th, BEYOND THE STREETS will open its doors in Los Angeles (1667 N Main St), an immersive survey of graffiti and street art, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Art in the Streets (covered) in 2011. This is not surprisingly seeing as Roger Gastman was an associate curator of that show back then at the MOCA, and will be the main curator of this new exhibition. Working with a roster of over 100+ artists, 40,000+ sq. ft. of industrial indoor and outdoor space has been converted for paintings, sculpture, photography, and installations (including a re-creation, in partnership with adidas Skateboarding, of the famous Venice Pavilion).
Participating artists include: BANKSY, SHEPARD FAIREY, REVOK, FUTURA 2000, RETNA, LADY PINK, DASH SNOW, C.R. STECYK III, GUERRILLA GIRLS, BARRY MCGEE, CHAZ BOJÓRQUEZ, MISTER CARTOON, LEE QUIÑONES, MARIPOL, FAILE, SWOON, EDDIE MARTINEZ, INVADER, RISK, KENNY SCHARF, JENNY HOLZER, HAZE, FELIPE PANTONE, ANDRÉ SARAIVA, GORDON MATTA-CLARK, STEPHEN POWERS, TODD JAMES, CRASH, DAZE, MARTHA COOPER, TAKI 183 PLUS DENNIS HOPPER, TAKASHI MURAKAMI, MARK MOTHERSBAUGH, and many more…
