Cross the Streets, exhibition at Macro Museum

This multimedia retrospective, made up of an impressive 200 works from street artists hailing from the Capital itself and around the world, sets to historicize the 40 year long phenomenon that we call street art.

From the Andy-Warhol-esque pop sculptures of Chicago to the immense site-specific spray pieces by Roman artists Diamond and Lucamaleonte, the section of the exhibition entitled Street Art Stories offers a plethora of mediums through which to appreciate this modern artistic movement.

The exhibition, curated by Paulo von Vacano, collects and tells 40 years of Street Art and Writing, hosting the most important artists in the museum spaces that have marked the fundamental stages of this movement at the international and local level. What’s more, as well as bringing the street to the museum, the photography and film curated by Christian Omodeo as part of the Writing in Rome collection transports visitors back out to the street.
