Tate Modern Street ArtJuxtapoz // Friday, 30 May 2008
Check out this movie of French photographer JR, represented by Lazarides Gallery, pasting up his massive black and white photo of a man pointing a camcorder towards onlookers as part of London’s Tate Modern Street Art exhibit. The highly anticipated show opened last weekend, featuring work from legendary artists: Blu, Faile, JR, Nunca, Os Gemeos, and Sixeart in the first commission to use the building’s iconic river façade, and the first major public museum display of street art in London.
The Tate Modern also has an accompanying Street Art Walking Tour, an urban tour of site-specific art from a group of five Madrid-based street artists: 3TTMan, Spok, Nano 4814, El Tono and Nuria.
The Street Art exhibit will remain on view at Tate Modern thru August 25th.
