Description


There is only one international vanguard that brings together the young, the marginalised and the minorities in the amniotic sac of globalization: Street Art. It has many names; graffiti, writing, bombing, urban art, but only one mission: to transform the city into an open-air museum. Cross the Streets is a multimedia exhibition that celebrates 40 years of the evolution of street art in Rome. No other city has such an untouched history and so it is fitting that Rome begins its cultural regeneration from its streets and its past. Creative inspiration has always been driven by instinct and these fleeting moments are preserved as etchings on everything from caves to catacombs, from Pasquino to propaganda murals. They serve as warnings, denouncements and exorcisms of fear. Street Art reflects the mood of modern society. Aside from its strength and artistic beauty, the form has always been a political and cultural thermometer. Rome remains one of the most important cities driving this movement and therefore it is right to celebrate it at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO). The museum is able to connect street art to the city in a way that shows the evolution of art and its making.
