LEE and the Fun Gallery at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Sunday, April 17, 2011
Another great part of the Art In the Streets exhibition is LEE Q's wall when you walk in, representing, or at least it seemed apparent to us, the NYC contingent at the show. And next to LEE's two pieces was a recreation of Patti Astor's seminal FUN Gallery that used to be the downtown spot in NYC for graffiti artists to exhibit in the 1980s. More after the jump . . .

Street Art // Saturday, April 16, 2011
Another highlight from "Art In the Streets" were the facing exhibition spaces of CR Stecyk III and Shepard Fairey. Stecyk covered the entirety of his walls with his screenprint and handpainted posters, all the same sized and dizzingly arranged. Shepard opted for a clean set-up, with iconic pieces that span his entire career. And Ed Templeton's work looned in the background. More after the jump . . .

MOCA's "Art In the Street" Security Camera Video

Street Art // Saturday, April 16, 2011
There was a lot of secrecy involved in the preparation of MOCA's "Art In the Streets" exhibition. We are quite sure if you were an artist in th show, your mother couldn't come see what you were doing until the press preview. That said, it also provided an opportunity for those setting up the entire show and documenting it to have a bit of fun, and MOCA created a film using the Geffen's security cameras. Watch after the jump . . .

Rammellzee at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Friday, April 15, 2011
One of the best rooms at MOCA, and to us one of the most important, was the "experience" that was the Rammellzee installation. Having passed away last year, and being such a pivotal figure in hip-hop, graffiti, and experimental culture and art in general, his inclusion in the show, and to this capacity, was essential.

Another standout installation at MOCA's "Art In the Streets" exhibit was Swoon's beautiful structure she has built with her team over the past month. Last night we were able to get a closer look, and found a stunning black and white, perfectly lit piece in its own room, surrounded with a white covering. More after the jump . . .

First Look: Banksy at MOCA's "Art In the Streets"

Street Art // Thursday, April 14, 2011
Of course, Banksy was the "special guest" today at MOCA's Art In the Streets. The best kept non-secret had a large space next to Street Market, Jamie Reid, and a fantastic mural by Mode 2. Banksy brought in some really nice paintings, and a very large construction vehicle to, you know, hang out in a museum. More after the jump  . . .
