“Street/Studio” at Irvine Contemporary

“Street/Studio” To August 1, 2009

READ HERE: “Street/Studio” at Irvine Contemporary - Arts & Events - Washington City Paper
By Maura Judkis

"The difference between the street and the studio is merely possession: outside, artists can claim ownership of, or at least the right to use, public space, while inside, collectors really have the power. Irvine Contemporary’s “Street/Studio,” however, asserts that the gallery is a natural extension of street artists’ public works. The eight artists’ studio works inside are arguably more ephemeral: they can be seen in the gallery for a month or so, while their street art could stay up until someone decides to paint over it."
