A Dialogue With The Urban Landscape


On opening night, more than 2,000 people crowded into the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego downtown to experience Viva La Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape. Social commentary, humor, and contradiction marked bold art pieces on display. The show, mounted in the Jacobs Building, will remain through January 2, 2011. Meanwhile, the guerrilla art aspect of this project germinates throughout S.D. in public spaces used for art installation. With the permission of building owners, artists have their say about a lot of issues as they express their views on the surfaces of structures. They demand attention for their street art and press for public debate. These artists blur the lines between their work and advertising. But, then, when is advertising art and when is art advertising? Make up your own mind about these visual graphics that speak directly to the public. Neglected buildings in East Village, as well as other structures in downtown and Hillcrest, are used in this street art exhibition to make claim to the artists’ right to be seen and heard.
