Preview: "Leave the Beef on the BBQ" at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco
Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco presents Leave the Beef on the BBQ, a group show featuring dozens of artists from throughout the canon of graffiti art history, from pioneers Taki 183, Iz the Wiz, and Dondi, to some of the most active and influential writers hitting the streets today. With contributing curators Metal Man Ed, Roger Gastman, Tim Diet, and Mr. Kiji, the resulting exhibition is a feast for the eyes with a wide variety of aesthetic visual styles filling the gallery walls. The playful title of the exhibition derives from the perpetual politics of graffiti culture, while also making reference to the timing of the show during the final days of Summer. On that note, Guerrero Gallery is hosting an unconventional opening of sorts, a BBQ from 3-7pm today. “Feel free to bring some of your favorite food to grill up on the BBQ!”
