about this book

While other books have chronicled graffiti in the US and abroad, this is the first to assemble the most important artists and writers from around the world and their interlocutors in one exhibition and accompanying volume. No other book on the subject has gathered all the major figures (experts and those involved in the earliest years of the graffiti movement) in one book. This is a landmark exhibition and book in every sense--comprehensive and authoritative.

The global influence of graffiti on contemporary culture is profound--from art to fashion to music. Art in the Streets will be the first major museum exhibition and book to present artists coming from street culture in the context of contemporary art and to consider the phenomenon globally.
