Art In The Streets at MOCA, Los Angeles

Exhibition documents history of a modern art phenomenon...

We were understandably excited to witness the much-hyped Banksy installation at the United States’ first major street art exhibition; Art in the Streets at LA’s MOCA. What we weren’t necessarily expecting was one of the most exhilarating modern art exhibitions that we’ve ever had the distinct pleasure of ogling. Running until 8th August, the exhibition – curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose – documents the history of street art, with works and installations from 50 of the scene’s most infamous and influential artists cranking up the wow-factor with the turn of each corner. From the ridiculously detailed recreation of an 11 year old installation at New York’s Deitch gallery – Barry McGee, Todd James and Stephen Powers’ Street Market – through to a hand-painted car by the iconic Keith Haring, this mind-blowing exhibition is simply the most powerful collection of graffiti and street art that there has ever been.
