“I tried to bring as many people as I could in here that deserve attention…to me it would be better as a massive group show.” —Barry McGee
Filmed in 2012, today’s Exclusive features artist Barry McGee discussing the work of family, friends, and a younger generation of street artists that he included in his retrospective exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA). Though these artists are not as well-known as McGee, their work is displayed with equal prominence. This democratic approach to making and displaying art is a defining characteristic of McGee’s street and studio practices. Watch the video below:
McGee’s self-titled retrospective has traveled from BAM/PFA to the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Boston where it is on view until September 2, 2013.
