Martha Cooper At MOCA Art In The Streets   By Very Nearly Almost | Video

Martha Cooper With Os Gemeos

From its subversive roots to the current explosion of interests, no one has documented the raise of graffiti and street arts better than Martha Cooper. In its celebration of all that is art on the streets, Museum of Contemporary Art dedicated a wall just for Cooper’s photos from the last 40 years. During the midst of its completion, Charlie Inman of VNA caught up with the photographer in a conversation about graffiti and street art’s past, present, and its vitality in the near future. Meanwhile, see one of the most complete compilation of street art at MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibit.

BLU Why is it not in this exhibition? The art of the street would there be limits to freedom of expression? The art market would he hard to integrate the work of producing meaning, beyond the agreed upon? The episode in December 2010 at MOCA is quickly evacuated, I think … http://next.liberation.fr/culture/01012312390-les-cercueils-de-blu-plombes-par-le-moca I’ll go see the work of BLU in the streets, keep your tools speculation museum For more news, soon: http://ecritique-revue.over-blog.com/ A + Sabine
