‘Street ‘N Low’
Sat, March 12th 8-11PM
Robert Berman Gallery
Space D5 in Bergamot Station / 2525 Michigan Ave in Santa Monica
Opening this Saturday at Robert Berman Gallery will be a select overview of some of the forerunners of the street/graffiti art movement and the new contemporary movement. Mixed in with these established outsiders will be artists rooted in other genres but whose work also explores the street phenomena. The tie that binds this exhibition is a commitment to the idea of urban space and works meant to be outside as well as inside, both in the physical and literal sense.
Highlights of the exhibition include works by Robert Williams, an original panel from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (SF) by Barry McGee, rare prints and posters by Robbie Conal, Shepard Fairey and Banksy, a major painting by James Doolin from 1991 of a downtown LA freeway-scape titled “East Wind” and a Retna 12’ x 4’ wood panel from the Seventh Letter Collective show ‘Angels Will Rise’.
The show runs in conjunction with ‘The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey – REVOLUTIONS’
