In reaction to street art style advertising on Eyebeam's graffiti wall, artist and Eyebeam fellow Michael Mandiberg created a pro graffiti psa. Having watched 11 Spring Street go from ground zero for street art to shiny condo building, I think it is swell that Eyebeam encourages street artists to use their facade. We need graffiti and not advertising!
Back in 2003 the gallery started its love affair with work taken to the street with our Made In New York exhibition and later with the Darius + Downey show, We're On It. Check out the links to see great work from the JBG archives.
