A highly anticipated Los Angeles show and Jeffrey Deitch’s first as museum director of MOCA, we were excited to check out Art In The Streets. That, and it was exhibiting some of the most talked about street artists today. We took a little field trip with the Poketo crew, it’s awesome to be able to step out the front door after work and be stones throw from museums, restaurants, nightlife… Downtown Los Angeles is amazing that way.
Art In The Streets was insane, a huge inspiration to say the least. There was so much work, too much to take in at one time… we need to go back for a second, third visit to appreciate everything. What definitely stole the show this time around is a re-creation of Street Market by Barry McGee, Steve Powers, and Todd James. A mini city they built for the show, complete with stores, tattoo parlor, video games, flashing signs, and of course McGee’s signature robotic taggers in the mix. Pics below, enjoy.
We are ready for round 2. The show is up until August 8, 2011.
