This is very thorough documentation of art in the streets from the trains and hobo documentation to street art but mostly graffiti. There are alot of people like the fun gallery owners, photographers anyone that had a dealing in documenting or shaping the history. This will be on a huge scale im talking building full installations like the recreation of Rammellzzee Tribeca studio, to full scale buses bombed, trucks, and possibly ive heard rumors of a full heaven by revok.

my favorite part is how there are huge graffiti icons such as say skeme or greg lamarche or porn (just to name a few) that are left out but people who NEVER did graffiti are in it, ie. gonz and templeton and richardson? wtf has he done for graffiti if you want to include a "in crowd" photographer that has actually DOCUMENTED graffiti should have been Ari Marcopoulos... what a blunder...

dont get too excited about this documenting "our culture"...

from what i have seen so far some of the installations are cool but nothing ground breaking imo...

i would post photos but for sure a shit storm would ensue from involved parties...

Organizing something like this is good, but claiming it to be something it is not, is comical. They should call it "big ass art show with alot of writers and some really cool guys who know people" not anything with the wording "anyone who ever made any impact" because theres hundreds being left out and an unnachievable goal to even attempt.

its not about a balance of the 2, its about being correct with what youre trying to promote.

Maybe you should read the link a little better. Its the history of graffiti and street art from the 70s.

I see the point, but I'm just not as jaded as everyone else to be honest. I'm glad that is the case.
