Cross The Streets. The Mission

In a world shaped by globalization, Street Art emerges as the international vanguard, a unifying force that brings together the youth, the marginalised, and the minorities. Known by many names such as graffiti, writing, bombing, or urban art, Street Art carries a singular mission: to transform the urban landscape into an open-air museum.

Von Vacano. Cataloguing the exhibition

“Cross The Streets” is a multimedia exhibition that commemorates 40 years of the evolution of street art in the vibrant city of Rome. Rome’s unparalleled history, unmarred by time, provides the ideal backdrop for this cultural renaissance. Throughout the ages, creative inspiration has been an instinctive force, leaving its lasting mark on everything from ancient caves to catacombs and from the iconic Pasquino to propaganda murals. These art forms serve as powerful messages, voicing warnings, denouncing injustices, and exorcising the spectre of fear from the collective consciousness.

“The street watches. The street rules.”

Street Art serves as a reflection of the prevailing mood within modern society. Beyond its inherent strength and artistic beauty, this art form has consistently functioned as a political and cultural barometer. Rome, standing as one of the pivotal cities propelling this movement, rightfully takes its place in the spotlight at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome (MACRO). Here, the museum adeptly bridges the world of street art with the city itself, illustrating the dynamic evolution of art and its creation in a manner that is both enlightening and transformative.
