The beef that people have toward art blogging is often not adding value to the actual works produced by the artist. However, the reason that Ennui covers Art in the Streets, at least through Internet curation and telling you about who to hit for what kind of perspective,is to bring the jumbled, often enclaved curatorial style of art’s in-crowd, like Art in the Streets curators Jeffrey Deitsch, Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose in sharper focus, especially for readers wanting to see the significance, not just exhibit shots or production videos.
And don’t get us wrong, no disrespect to Deitsch and company for their awesome, awesome contribution to this genre and setting, but art that was borne from bystander fascination and cover of night deserves to be covered by every outlet, in whatever way possible. In this case, check out LA graff legend and blu collar self-starter Revok1‘s own curation of Art in the Streets coverage.
Wow, that last one is LA at its finest. Revok‘s selections of photos in that post definitely lean more toward LA’s graff inspirations, as those works are closest to the heart of the writer’s career and style. From Revok1:
Here are a few photos from the incredibly overwhelming experience that is ART IN THE STREETS…
More photos soon when I get the chance to sit down at a computer and upload my own…
As we sift through the thousands of photos swamping the Internet right now, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the unique perspectives that the artists and documenters are presenting at this show.
