Beyond the Streets

Posted on March 21, 2018

BEYOND THE STREETS (BTS) is the premier exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond, celebrating the soaring heights to which the world’s most recognizable modern art movement has risen. BTS is a groundbreaking multimedia showcase of paintings, sculpture, photography, installations and more throughout 40,000+ sq ft of industrial indoor and outdoor space. BEYOND THE STREETS celebrates the global movement of graffiti and street art, exploring fundamental human themes: mark making and rule breaking. BEYOND THE STREETS is not intended to be a historical retrospective but rather an examination of cultural outlaws who embody the spirit of the graffiti and street art culture.

The exhibition opens to the public in Los Angeles on May 6, 2018, runs through July 6, then heads to New York, with more locations to be announced.

BEYOND THE STREETS is curated by Roger Gastman. He is a graffiti historian, urban anthropologist and collector who Forbes says "has made a career of being the cultural connector between street artists and the art world." BEYOND THE STREETS is Gastman’s dynamic follow-up to Art in the Streets, the U.S.' first-ever graffiti and street art retrospective which broke MoCA Los Angeles' attendance record with 220,000 visitors. Known for founding and co-publishing Swindle magazine with Shepard Fairey, Gastman co-authored The History of American Graffiti and co-produced the Oscar Award-nominated Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. Additional curation is done by Editor in Chief of Juxtapoz Magazine Evan Pricco, author and historian Caleb Neelon, and legendary NYC graffiti writer and historian David "Chino" Villorente. Adam Lerner, Director of the MCA Denver serves as a curatorial advisor. The exhibition is produced by Ian Mazie.
