Saturday evening in San Diego was a great night for street, urban, and new contemporary art. With many of the museums in so-called cultural centers of this country and world still slow to embrace a rapidly growing movement, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego made it clear where they stand with an amazing exhibition of some of the major players in this art “Revolucion”. Not only did the city open up their public spaces to the artists (albeit still with some naysayers), they also turned out in full force to support the opening just like art lovers have in the few other museums that have taken a risk to display non-traditional art.
Perhaps the rumored upcoming street art exhibition at the LA MOCA under the new guidance of Deitch will be the coming out party for our movement, but San Diego, you will be remembered. More opening photos after the jump…
