“CONCRETE to DATA” Explores the Evolution of Street Art

CONCRETE to DATA - An Evolution of Street Art & Graffiti in the Digital Age is open now at the Steinberg Museum of Art in Brookville, NY until March 21. “The emphasis of this exhibition will celebrate the transcending techniques, styles, methods and contexts of generating street art and graffiti,” the museum said in a press release.

The show will display works from the late 1970’s through today’s new media technologies and will range from “ephemeral murals to site specific arrangements and installations.”

Curated by Ryan Seslow, CONCRETE to DATA features work from artists who specialize in a wide range of techniques to highlight how street art and graffiti have changed in tandem with technology.

The mediums represented throughout the showcase include aerosol paint, stencils, brush application, paste-ups, assemblage, sculpture, photography, video art, GIF animation, virtual reality, documentation and internet technologies.

CONCRETE to DATA has also announced that they’ll soon be launching a collaborative public open call for submissions in conjunction with the exhibit.

General Howe, CAKE, Leon Reid IV, Chris Stain, EKG, Billy Mode, RJ Rushmore, Martha Cooper, Herb Smith, Henry Chalfant, Yamasaki, Joe Iurato are amongst the more than 40 artists who have contributed to the showcase.
