FROM BASQUIAT TO BANKSY,
THE KINGS OF THE STREET
OCTOBER 8 – DECEMBER 16, 2017
Via Pedemonte di Sopra 1
From Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 6pm.
Special opening Sunday 8th October.
The exhibition intends to tell the story of this particular cultural expression, trapped between illegality and art. From New York Metro wagons where it was born in the 1970s, Street Art has now gained popularity with the public and the full recognition as an artistic form, as well as being accepted in galleries and museums around the world.
“We are facing this year with one of the last great movements of the twentieth century, which today is among the most in vogue in terms of commercial success, media attention and popularity amid the public. The exhibition will present numerous works within a path from the pioneers of American graffiti (Seen, Cope2, Blade and many others) to the many forms of current Street Art. All, through some of the greatest names in the history of contemporary art: from Basquiat’s myth to Keith Haring’s creativity and the unreachable and mysterious Banksy.”
