Review: "Beyond the Streets" Has a Dense and Varied History on Display in Los Angeles

May 06, 2018 - Jul 06, 20181667 N Main Street , Los Angeles

There was always going to be a lot to take in from Beyond the Streets, whether it be from the curators attempt to not only tell a history, but also portray a future. Or perhaps the fact that the audience navigates nearly 50 years of art in one enormous show. And, of course, this is an art history that is still being written, as graffiti and street art are both venerable and vital art forms that continue to grow and nurture new generations simultaneously. As Beyond the Streets opened in Los Angeles at 1667 N Main Street this past weekend, there was a sense that we may be beginning to see where this movement is headed.
