CROSS THE STREET
Dorothy Circus Gallery at Macro Museum Rome
Via Nizza 138
From May 7th until October 31st 2017
Street art is a unique avant-garde that unifies youth, minorities, and the marginalised in an era of globalisation. Cross the Streets at the MACRO presents a comprehensive introspection on street art through a kaleidoscope of urban art movements, including graffiti, stencil art, pop-surrealism, photography, and film.
The section “Street Art Stories” details the birth and evolution of street art through a myriad of different artists who have contributed to the show with their unique styles and mediums, among these you will find the works of ROA, Hyuro, and Miss Van.
The viewer will then be guided into a whole new artistic realm dedicated to pop-surrealism in street art that includes the works of Ray Caesar, Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Camille Rose Garcia, Kazuki Takamatsu, Yosuke Ueno. The surreal setting also hosts wacky, eye-catching sculptures (called toys) by Ron English, the American artist who explores brand imagery and advertising through diverse channels, including comic book collaging.
