About RISE
Los Angeles is blessed with an abundance of great artists, fine galleries and world class museums. However, it is not as rich as many U.S. cities in terms of public art in open spaces. We are constantly bombarded with signage and commercial advertising in our streets, but where is the public art there? Enter the graffiti artist. We’re talking not about taggers, who commit vandalism simply to assert their identity or territory, but about artists who take their creative efforts seriously. Those who talent and work have been recognized by the established art community. All of the artists represented in our exhibit have done graffiti at some point in their careers. Most if not all of them have done pieces on the streets that were commissioned or otherwise authorized by the real property owners, thereby avoiding the element of vandalism, and all of them have made their way into reputable galleries if not museums. The heart and soul of graffiti art is to be visible from the streets and to be part of the urban landscape, so the challenge for these artists is how to maintain this heart and soul while displaying their work in galleries or museums.

We hope you enjoy our exhibit and that it sparks a greater appreciation of the graffiti art that pervades our city. We must also express our heartfelt gratitude to Inner-City Arts for allowing us to be part of their 2013 Summer on 7th!

The “Art in the Streets” collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) was an extraordinary opportunity for Cadillac to bring to life its core ideologies: bold creativity that surpasses all conceivable expectation, the recognition of great risks as opportunities, and a daring ingenuity that breaks down all boundaries.

The Exhibitionist video | Art in the Streets

August 14 2011 . 01:11am

 

A man and his suitcase take an extraordinary pixilated journey through MOCA’s exhibition Art in the Streets at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, as works by BANKSY, RAMMELLZEE and KENNY SCHARF come alive all around him.

Directed by brothers Mark Osborne (MORE and KUNG FU PANDA) and Kent Osborne (ADVENTURE TIME, SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS), this short film was created in an improvisational fashion during three very busy days at the museum.

This film was made in collaboration with the Levi’s Film Workshop and Happy Product, Inc.:

Original Music and Sound Design is by Pete Houser http://www.bassbintwins.com
