About “Cross The Streets” Exhibit
The exhibit, inspired by the research and concept of Paulo Lucas von Vacanos, tells the evolution of Street Art and Writing over 40 years. Cross the streets wants to provide a cultural set and historicize the Street Art and Writing phenomena by presenting the most influential artists of the last 40 years.
Urban street art, a unique avant-garde movement able to unify youth and minorities in an era of globalization, is presented in all its forms, ranging from writing, graffiti, mural paintings and stancil art which have all deeply influenced collective imagination.
Cross the Streets includes more than 180 works from Street artists hailing from Rome itself, which is constitutes an unparalleled example with regard to the volume and longevity of graffiti on public transports, and around the world.
The section named “Street Art Stories” details the birth and evolution of street art showing the artists that have contributed the most, such as WK Interact and Invader.
Next, visitors will encounter the 10 meter long Middle East Mural by Shephard Fairey (aka Obey the Giant), the American street artist best know for his Obama hope poster.
