Barry McGee Exhibit at the ICA

Posted by Hillary Waldron on Thu, May 09, 2013

barryBarry McGee's Exhibit will be appearing at Boston's ICA until September 2, 2013.

Barry McGee started exhibiting his inspiration art on the streets of San Francisco in the late 1980s. His inspiration came from the economic and social environment which was filled with uncertainty and a hard core music culture. 

"McGee developed as a graffiti artist, often under the tag name 'Twist'. Deploying a visual vocabulary that borrows elements from graffiti, comics, hobo art, sign painting, and other sources, McGee’s imagery simultaneously celebrates and critiques his diverse Mission District neighborhood. 

At once humorous, political, and difficult, his art underscores the complexities of life in early twenty-first-century America, a country in the midst of wars, a financial crisis, unemployment, class stratification, and the ever-cheerful exhortation to keep consuming. Unwilling to simply reflect existing conditions, McGee’s work proposes an alternate reality of political provocation, cooperative survival, and creative exuberance. "
