I’m not sure what I think about this. My intital reaction is,”hells yeah!” But until I see it (next week) I’m going to act nutural towards one of my fav phenomons. The problem I have with it, is the act of which street art is treated as an artworld commodity. It looses it’s intigrity, it’s context and it’s meaning. From working class art – to the middle classes going and looking at it suggesting that it’s either not art; or that us working class graffiti artists can do something alright in art.
I’m in a rush getting ready (yet i post a post?) I’ll post something about this later on in the week along with some PAD/D stuff. Watch this space.
Until then here is the Tate’s graff films, which look pretty awesome. I reckon I won’t be able to get down 2 London then, so you guys need 2 check it for me!
