Street Art Street Life : From the 1950s to Now Hardback
by Frazer Ward, Lydia Yee
"Street Art, Street" Life examines the street as subject matter, venue, and source of inspiration for contemporary artists and photographers from the late 1950s to the present.
This unique volume includes street photography; documentation of performance, events, and artworks presented in the street; works using material from the street; and, examples of street culture.
Through works by almost thirty world-renowned artists, "Street Art, Street Life" explores a range of themes related to the street: as arena for political and cultural expression, violence and crime, gender roles in an urban context, advertising and commerce, and as counterpoint to museums and other traditional art venues. "Street Art, Street Life" is published on the occasion of an exhibition of the same name, organized by international curator Lydia Yee.
