Art in the Streets Book

April 6th, 2011 | By | 10 Comments »

Since we haven’t posted about Art in the Streets in a few days, we thought now would be the best time to release some photos of the accompanying exhibit book for the show. Put together by the curators of the show, Roger Gastman, Aaron Rose and of course, Jeffrey Deitch, the book acts as an international retrospective of art, or as much as can be packed into the pages.

Also, here are some more names featured in the show (and book) as well. These could have been guessed, but now they are confirmed: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Stelios Faitakis, Futura, Phil Frost, Os Gemeos, Keith Haring, Todd James, Margaret Kilgallen, Lady Pink, Barry McGee, Steve “ESPO” Powers, Lee Quinones, Retna, Kenny Scharf, Swoon, Ed Templeton

Again, some were known, but now we are starting to get more of an idea what the show is shaping up to be. I’m still surprised what a well-kept secret it is thus far.

    haha yeah. As Steph said, everyone’s been oddly quiet about the line up. Even the artists who are in it don’t seem to know exactly who else is involved (or else they’ve been sworn to secrecy).

    I could tell you, but I don’t think Vandalog is important enough to have such valuable information.

    something about this whole show leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and Im not sure why…..

    i think the show will be quite wonderful- but there’s something off….maybe its the whole Blu issue, I’m not sure.

    @ NONO A good portion of the LA scene has had that same taste for since last year. Presumably for old school writers and artists that they felt should have been included in the whole deal.

    It’s posts like this that make me regret getting a job in the frozen north. Best of luck with the show, I’m sure it’ll turn out great!

    Anyone spent any time with both this and the History of American graffitti? Which is better?

    Good question, especially since Gastman is involved in both books. I’d guess they are pretty different though.
