Beyond The Streets New York took over Williamsburg, Brooklyn with monumental graffiti and street art from more than 150 artists from around the world. Beyond The Streets laced two floors on 25 Kent Avenue displaying numerous immersive installations, bridging the gap between graffiti art, and dynamic art forms. My favorite three exhibits were Tats Cru’s Shy 147 ROC RIP mural, Joe Conzo’s candid photography Hip-hop timeline and Eric Haze’s Beastie Boys installation featuring artifacts and ephemera from the band’s prolific four decade history. BEYOND THE STREETS examines the fundamental human need for public self-expression. Hands down, Beyond The Streets was the most amazing exhibition I’ve ever experienced. It reminded me of growing up in The Bronx and watching bombed trains pass by as I commuted to Public school.
