This is probably one of the most amazing exhibitions I’ve been since David Bowie earlier this year! Beyond the Streets not only is an extraordinary exhibition but celebrates street art in monumental proportions.

I believe that most of you know, or at least have heard about the importance of graffiti and street art in New York’s history and how it is part of the city’s essence and culture.

Beyond The Streets is located in one of Williamsburg newest locations called Twenty Five Kent. It was beautifully curated by Roger Gastman and takes over a space of 100,000 square feet, spread within 2 massive floors.

This traveling art exhibition is attracting viewers of all ages and nationalities. They all spend a few hours emerged in learning how graffiti and street art has, and still is, transforming society. In addition to how these “mark makers” express themselves and share, within their work, crucial messages and where “art activism” has created and conquered its space.

The curation of the exhibition is fantastic, and it unites over 150 names from all over the world like:  C.R. Stecyk III, Cey Adams, John Ahearn, Felipe Pantone, Kennt Shcarf, Maya Hayuk, Martha Cooper and Lady Pink (that I talked about in our IGTV video). And still, others like Patrick Martinez, Obey, Mark Gonzales, Lee Quiñones and so many other amazing creators that are truly disrupting this industry!

We were able to see art works, videos, massive installations, sculptures and so much more. Not to mention, the building has a priceless view of Manhattan’s skyline!

A bit more about them:

“BEYOND THE STREETS celebrates society’s most pervasive mark makers and rule breakers with unprecedented purpose and scale. The exhibition explores the collective urgency of using the street as a canvas for expression. People have long taken to the streets to share a name, phrase, image or cause with the world around them to force a public discourse.

Streets act as the symbolically important public stage that is both local and universal, the bedrock for both public protest and anonymous action. While the subject matter varies and the mediums are many, it is in the public sphere where these messages find a home.”

Unfortunately, they only passed by New York during a few Summer months. Yesterday was the last day in New York, as their travel now continues…

Be sure to stay tuned to their website. Or, sign up to their newsletter to know where they’re headed next!

I promise, you won’t be disappointed! They truly are doing an extraordinary work!

I can’t forget to mention their store! They have a selection of over 150 products and even some great original work, if you’re into collecting art! From the common t-shirts, hats, magnets and keychains, to puzzels, art, decoration items and so much more! Oh! They do sell online, if you missed it!

Lastly, if you’re into graffiti, you might want to check out all 19 murals painted by Kobra in New York or read an exclusive Insider Interview with Jayson Naylor!
