BARRY McGee Video – Setting up at SFMOMA

One of the most influential artists to come out of the graffiti and street art scenes, Barry McGee, was recently asked to reinstall a work of his at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for their 75th Anniversary retrospective.
Guess they really like this pimple-shaped protrusion of framed sketches, drawings, tags, photos, and geometric patterns

it’s the 4th installation of the piece at SFMOMA since 1996.

In the video, McGee talks about his first creative impulses and practices, “I drew a lot as a kid, but I didn’t know I was going to be an artist.”

Thanks to G. Lewis Heslet, of The Creative Lives, for alerting us to this video.  For more about the project go to
