From the Museum of Contemporary Art Press Release:

Art in the Streets will showcase installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists from the graffiti and street art community, including Fab 5 Freddy (New York), Lee Quiñones (New York), Futura (New York), Margaret Kilgallen (San Francisco), Swoon (New York), Shepard Fairey (Los Angeles), Os Gemeos (São Paulo), and JR(Paris). MOCA’s exhibition will emphasize Los Angeles’s role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture. The exhibition will feature projects by influential local artists such as Craig R. Stecyk III, Chaz Bojórquez, Mister Cartoon, RETNA, SABER, REVOK,and RISK.
Well, this is going in to the calendar. Talk about pulling out all the stops for this one. Basically any name attached to graff and street culture that has seeped into any kind of social sphere is going to be “featured” or otherwise participating in this travelling exhibit… seen at Moca’s the Curve. Definitely an ambitious undertaking.
