Né dans la rue (Born in the Street)

« Né dans la rue » is the name of a photography exhibit taking place at the Fondation Cartier in Paris until end of November. « Born in the street » refers to graffiti and street art as this exhibit shows the evolution of this art over the last thirty years through photographies and live graffitis.Yet, for a moment I was fooled as I initially believed this exhibit showed pictures of kids « born in the streets ». Maybe my brain was tricked by the association of this sister in a bus and the charity of Mother Teresa.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Very bad exibition… I love graffiti but the artists for the first floor (contempory art) are not a good representative of the actual Grafitti scene and really poor… It’s a pity.
    For me, this exibit is like a zoo, where old and rich people( fondation Cartier !!!!) can approach this art which scare them !!
    The real good exibition is in the street !

    so, Nice shot !!!

    ;)
