Beyond the Streets Hits New York City
The graffiti and street art exhibition opens in Brooklyn today.
Beyond the Streets, an exhibition celebrating “vandalism as contemporary art”—a.k.a. graffiti and street art—is opening in North Williamsburg today, with work from over one hundred and fifty artists included.
Curated by graffiti expert and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman, the show explores the art of public (and often rebellious) forms of self-expression.
Beyond the Streets features multiple immersive installations and tactile experiences, including the U.S. debut of “Facing the Giant: 3 Decades of Dissent,” Shepard Fairey’s thirtieth anniversary, a special Beastie Boys installation featuring artifacts and ephemera from the band’s prolific four-decade history, oversized sculptures by FUTURA and Cleon Peterson, a wall of Jenny Holzer’s truisms, a functioning tattoo parlor by Bert Krak & Alexis Ross, a room of puppets by Paul INSECT and BAST made of trash, works by Takashi Murakami, Guerrilla Girls, and much more.
Beyond the Streets opens today at 25 Kent Ave, Brooklyn for a limited time. For tickets, hours of operation, and more information, please click here.
