From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art

Category:

Thursday, April 27, 2017
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Description

Anchored by large-scale mural commissions by some of the best-known American urban artists, “From the Streets” chronicles the meteoric rise of the urban artist from vandal and outlaw to cultural trendsetter. Mixed-media installations, murals, photographs and works on canvas will highlight the mastery and diverse practices of today’s urban artists.

The ground floor of ArtsWestchester’s gallery will highlight legendary artists who rose to prominence in the 1980’s, a pivotal moment in graffiti’s burgeoning culture. It was this era where a spirit of competition fostered innovation and birthed a unique mode of artistic expression. “From the Streets” tracks these artists’ continued influence on urban visual culture and examines the shift from the streets to the gallery and museum. Artists exhibited on the gallery’s second floor are internationally recognized for creating provocative work informed by the attitude and style of street art’s pioneers.

“From The Streets” exemplifies the scope and evolution of a subculture that has become a global movement. To accompany the exhibition, ArtsWestchester will present a series of film screenings and music happenings that position the artwork within a broader cultural context.
“From the Streets” is Curated by Marc Leader and Melissa McCaig-Welles, and made possible thanks to support from Westchester Medical Center’s Health Network.
