The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles is current exhibiting the first major US survey of graffiti and street art. The exhibition features a wide range of media including interactive installations, sculptures, video and paintings and also documents the evolution of graffiti and street art in LA with detailed explorations into local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture.
Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition is celebrated throughout the streets of downtown LA, near to Little Tokyo with many artworks featured in and around the area. British artist Banksy features and has sponsored a day of free admission. "I don't think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it."
The exhibition aims to connect diverse audiences and make graffiti universally accessible - an important trait of graffiti and street art! See the MOCA website for more info.
