VNA got bumped into graffiti photographer, documenter and bonafide badass Martha Cooper on the set of Art in the Streets. Some pretty interesting thoughts, and kind of putting a voice to a name, which is always welcome. Something about sunny LA brings out the best and brightest in people.
You should also check out Very Nearly Almost, some constructive reporting and web curation, along with inside looks and just great personality behind the project.
Swoon is really showing off her art installation and technique with her recent exhibit at AITS. Check out this process video brought to you by Levi’s Film Workshop. So dope. Via Hypebeast.
We wish this was just a little longer or got a few more shots in, but the idea is pretty cool, especially with Art in the Streets reaching critical mass in the last couple of days. Getting an inside view really shows how differently writers and artists approached their respective “walls,” this time, tailored for a gallery setting. Check it out here:
There was a lot of secrecy involved in the preparation of MOCA’s “Art In the Streets” exhibition. We are quite sure if you were an artist in the show, your mother couldn’t come see what you were doing until the press preview. That said, it also provided an opportunity for those setting up the entire show and documenting it to have a bit of fun, and MOCA created a film using the Geffen’s security cameras.
Art in the Streets is going to be riot, so as remote viewers and curators we’ll keep an eye peeled for interesting bits and pieces around the show, and leave the actual coverage to the local and embedded sources.
