Art in the Round: Street Art at the Tate Modern
by Liz Colville
London’s Tate Modern kicks off summer 2008 with the exhibit “Street Art,” a public display of strange and beautiful works by five important artists and collectives from around the world. We showcase some of the artists in the exhibit, as well as other important street artists and projects not included in the lineup.
The stars of the Tate Modern’s “Street Art” hail from a variety of urban settings. Visit the Web sites of Blu from Bologna, the Brooklyn-based collective Faile, and Sixeart from Barcelona, or peruse the Graffiti Project site’s biography of twin brothers from Sao Paolo who work together as Os Gemeos.
