Celebrating street art at the Tate Modern

Published: Tuesday 27th of May 2008

One person's graffiti is another's free-spirited expression of urban creativity. Now a top London attraction is showcasing the work of six internationally renowned purveyors of street art.

Running until August 25th, Street Art utilises the Tate Modern's famous facade as the canvass for the works by the Italian artist Blu, the New York art collective Faile, JR from Paris, the Brazilian artists Nunca and Os Gemeos, both from Sau Paulo, and Sixeart from the Spanish cit of Barcelona.

Visitors to the show can also take the Street Art Walking Tour, an urban excursion involving site-specific art from five Madrid-based street artists: 3TTMan Spok, Nano 5814, El Tono and Nuria.

There will also be a host of other events during the course of the exhibition, including graffiti light projections and an interactive evening with the experimental New York artists Graffiti Research Lab.

Entry to the Tate Modern is free to members of the public, although London Pass card holders can receive a free audio tour of the gallery.
