Curated by Chicago Graffiti Artist and Professor Kane One Outside In highlights some of the finest graffers and street artists Chicago has seen. “This exhibition surveys the aesthetics created (from the 1980s to the present) in Chicago’s public space through a contemporary Mexican-American experience. It investigates graffiti and street art as a social practice, focusing on agency, mobilization and identity formation.” I can bet anyone that has walked the streets of Chicago has seen at least one piece of work from one of these artists. If you are person who appreciates Chicago street art or art for that matter this is definitely an exhibit that you must check out. The exhibit kicks off tonight and since its been curated by Kane One I have a feeling you won’t be disappointed. So head on over to Pilsen to see some great art and learn a little something. Check out the details and artists of the exhibit below and for more information be sure to visit the National Museum of Mexican Art here.
