Massive “Beyond The Streets” to Open this May in LA, Curated by Roger Gastman

Posted on March 19, 2018

We’re starting the week off by announcing a new Street Art and graffiti inspired exhibition opening May 6th in Los Angeles called Beyond The Streets. Curated by author and graffiti historian Roger Gastman, the show is said to be a dynamic follow-up to Art in the Streets, the graffiti and street art retrospective at MoCA Los Angeles in 2011.

That one was supposed to come to Brooklyn but was cancelled and Gastman tells us that he is planning to bring this new show to New York, possibly elsewhere, as a sort of traveling exhibition. Running in LA for about 10 weeks, the success of that show will most likely help determine how far it can go.

With a footprint that requires an estimated 40,000 square feet in LA, the exhibition sounds expansive and able to give ample space to the expanse of styles and disciplines indicated by the eclectic artist list. The possible locations for moving the show to New York is a list we’d like to see as pop-up shows this size can be an appreciable undertaking. In any event we’ll be happy to see the Faile Temple here again – as it has already been exhibited in the Brooklyn Museum. But we are getting ahead of ourselves!

Beyond The Streets is said to showcase paintings, sculpture, photography, installations, and performances indoor and outdoors, and will include works by an array of artists that may not have a lot in common except that they come from the streets or have interacted meaningfully with street culture sometime in the last five decades.

The mission statement says in part that it, “celebrates the global movement of graffiti and street art, exploring fundamental human themes: mark making and rule breaking.” It will be interesting to see how their works and scenes are tied to one another cohesively to help tell a complex story – one that now more readily acknowledges the contributions of conceptualists, muralists and even art school kids than it did only a decade ago. Onward!
