The street art exhibitions you want to know about 2016
Street art started out as part of a movement in the 80s and 90s – an expression of the people far from institutions and establishments. Today street art as an art form has taken multiple directions and different street art techniques are translated into “fineart”, fused with other techniques and art forms.
As we continue our exhibition French Connection – showcasing the new generation French established street artists – we are publishing a list with our worldwide selection of important exhibitions 2016 generating from street art.
Feel free to comment and share your favorites.
