Cross The Streets Exhibition Catalogue.


Esiste una sola avanguardia internazionale in grado di riunire gioventù, periferia e minoranze nel sacco amniotico della globalizzazione: la Street Art. Esistono 1001 modi di chiamarla: graffiti, writing, bombing, urban art ma una sola è la missione: far diventare la città un museo a cielo aperto. Cross the streets celebra, attraverso una mostra polivalente e interattiva, un primato unico per Roma: essere la città con più continuità nell’ambito della Street Art, 40 anni di un cantiere in continuo divenire. Nessun’altra città ha avuto questa storia ininterrotta ed è giusto che, nel corso della sua rigenerazione culturale, Roma riparta dalle sue strade e dalla sua storia. La storia dell’umanità è stata sempre accompagnata da un istinto piuttosto che un desiderio di lasciare il proprio segno per l’eternità. Lo si può ritrovare dalle caverne (in cui veniva usato per esorcizzare la paura dell’incontrollabile) alle catacombe (dove serviva come monito e lascito per il proprio passaggio), dalle scritte di Pasquino (che denunciavano in forma anonima le malefatte dei potenti) ai murales di propaganda totalitarista. E giusto ricordare che la Street Art, letteralmente arte di strada, rif lette lo stato d’animo della società civile avanzata e che, al di fuori della sua forza e bellezza artistica, è stata sempre un termometro politico dello stato dell’animo della cultura popolare. Roma era ed è una delle città più importanti di questo movimento ed è giusto festeggiare questo rizoma culturale nel Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO), che mette a sua disposizione la sua centralità per connettere l’arte della strada con il territorio dimostrando in questo modo che è cambiato e si è evoluto il modo di produrre arte. -Paulo von Vacano.

Cross the Streets is a multimedia exhibition that historicizes the street art phenomenon, the most globally influential art movement of the last 40 years. For the first time in Rome, a counterculture—by now part of the mainstream—enters a museum, the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome. The exhibition will be on display from May 7th to October 1st 2017.
Promoted by the Rome Department for Cultural Growth– Capitoline Superintendency for Cultural Heritage, the exhibition is conceived and produced by Drago, together with nufactory (promoter and producer of the Outdoor festival), the ABC Project of Lazio and with the organizational support and Museum Services of the Zètema Culture Project. 
The exhibition is endorsed by CONI.
The project was inspired by Paulo Lucas von Vacano’s research 
on the Street counterculture and all of its derivatives. 
As he explains in the exhibition catalogue, “the street watches [and] the street governs [...]. 
Choosing creativity instead of crime is a stance that encourages art, music and sports. The revolution occurs when the street enters the museum and the museum becomes the street. 
Those who survive the streets, rule the world!"
Street art is a unique avant-garde that unifies youth, minorities, and the marginalized in an era of globalization. Cross the Streets at the MACRO will present a comprehensive introspection on street art through a kaleidoscope of urban art movements, including graffiti, stencil art, pop-surrealism, photography, and film. Street art in its various forms, from graffiti writing to mural painting, has a deep impact on the collective imagination. Originating as an underground movement of youthful protest, street art has positively invaded advertising, and the global fashion, film, and music industries. Cross the Streets aims to express the power of this complex and fascinating movement, highlighting its pioneers and its influence on daily life. 
The show will also examine street art’s role in inspiring fashion trends and the history of Roman graffiti.
The exhibition is conceived by Paulo von Vacano and produced by Drago.
