The MOCA Art In The Streets show coincides with a slew of street art-related events; among them, this show opening May 15 at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Street Cred: Graffiti Art From Concrete to Canvas, curated by graffiti historian Steve Grody and PMCA Exhibition Manager Shirlae Cheng-Lifshin, looks specifically at the development of street art in Los Angeles (the MOCA show is an international survey). According to the museum, it will explore ”the ways in which the street work informs the canvas work, and how the two worlds interact.”
Featured artists, some of whom are also in the MOCA exhibit, include: Michael Alvarez, ANGST, AXIS, Chaz Bojórquez, CODAK, CRAOLA, DASH 2000, Ekundayo, EYEONE, HASTE, Paul SKEPT Kanemitsu, Alex Kizu, KOFIE, MAN ONE, MEAR ONE, Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez, Jose Lopez, Erick Montenegro, Nicnak, PUSH, RISK, Jeff Soto, Evan Skrederstu, RETNA, REVOK, SABER, SHANDU, Jesse Simon, SINER, and ZES.
