Outdoor Exhibit Features Overlooked Street Art

by Vivien Park



The Street Museum of Art has curated an outdoor exhibit called "Beyond Banksy: Not Another Gift Shop" in London's Shoreditch neighborhood. Banksy was intentionally left out in order to expand public knowledge of less-famous street artists.



The exhibit features museum-style placards beside each artist's work in the neighborhood. This allows intentional and unintentional viewers to learn more about public art that is often overlooked in the busy urban environment.

Projects by C215, Christiaan Nagel, Eine, Invader, Mobstr, Pablo Delgado, Phlegm, Roa, Run, Skrewville, Stik and Swoon cover diverse media — from sculpture, print and painting to installations, mosaics and miniature wheat pastes. The show will last as long as the work on display.

    Don't you think that this can enrich the ways of "learning to get lost in cities" which Anja Wolf described here
