Graffiti in a museum? That’s right! In Somerset House’s exhibition Venturing Beyond: Graffiti and the Everyday Utopias of the Street, graffiti works are placed within the walls of the museum. While graffiti is usually seen as breaking the rules, here they are showcased as works of art. Artists from the UK, France, Italy, Denmark, Australia the US and Spain push the boundaries of street art in this show by creating striking works that venture beyond our common stereotypes.
