Beyond The Streets Extended
Due to an incredibly successful Los Angeles debut, BEYOND THE STREETS (BTS), will be extending through August 26th. Seeing more than 60,000 attendees since its opening on May 6, the immersive museum experience will keep show doors open and deliver an invigorated summer program presented by adidas that includes weekly panel discussions, film screenings, lectures, music performances, limited edition collector’s releases, book and print signings, and much more.
“We originally planned for BEYOND THE STREETS to be open for eight weeks, but the response to the show has been so overwhelmingly positive that we knew we had to stay open longer and give more people the chance to see the show,” said Roger Gastman, BTS curator. “And since it’s summer, we figured we should add in some special events. We worked with adidas on a whole slate of fun screenings and talks. We’re really excited to give the public new ways to engage with the artists and this culture.”
Summer in the Streets will play host to a special screening of This Is the End and Q&A with Seth Rogen and director Evan Goldberg (The Interview), discussions with renowned street photographer Estevan Oriol and artist Cleon Peterson along with a Jason REVOK zine signing. Additional highlights also include a screening of Thrashin’ with Natas Kaupas and cast, a Guerilla Girls lecture on modern feminism, and screening of cult classic Wild Style with a talk by director Charlie Ahearn, and more.
The premiere exhibit will also expand its presentation with new works from Vhils and Greg “CRAOLA” Simkins, along with other surprises.
