Beyond The Streets

Beyond The Streets

BEYOND THE STREETS (BTS) is the premier exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond, celebrating the soaring heights to which the world’s most recognizable modern art movement has risen. BTS is a groundbreaking multimedia showcase of paintings, sculpture, photography, installations and more. The exhibition debuted in Los Angeles in May 2018 in an industrial indoor and outdoor space.

Curated by Roger Gastman. He is a graffiti historian, urban anthropologist, and collector who Forbes says "has made a career of being the cultural connector between street artists and the art world." BEYOND THE STREETS is Gastman’s dynamic follow-up to Art in the Streets, the U.S.' first-ever graffiti and street art retrospective which broke MoCA Los Angeles' attendance record with 220,000 visitors. Known for founding and co-publishing Swindle magazine with Shepard Fairey, Gastman co-authored The History of American Graffiti and co-produced the Oscar Award-nominated Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

This exhibit is not a historical retrospective but an examination of cultural outlaws who embody the spirit of the graffiti and street art culture. The exhibition includes well-known artists whose work is influenced or inspired by these risk takers and whose efforts have elevated the movement to new heights. Focuses on artists primarily derived from the graffiti and street art movements, with a documented history of mark making and rule-breaking as well as a robust studio practice.
