Beyond The Streets, a huge public exhibition dedicated to the history of graffiti, street art and related cultures related has arrived in London after previously showing in New York and LA.
The exhibition is epic in scale and wide ranging in content and features art and installations from many household names from the urban art realm. Yesterday, the day before the official opening to the public, we manage to put together a taster video and we grabbed an exclusive moment with the curator Roger Gastman, if you have seen Banksy’s Exit Through The gift Shop he was the Zvengali saviour parachuted in by Banksy to wave his “make-shit-happen” wand over the chaos of Mr Brainwash’s LA debut show.
One burning question is why no Banksy? The elephant is not in the room. Yet. We have a sneaky feeling that these guys could still have something up their sleeve.
Our full review will follow eventually, there’s no rush!
