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.

Happy Easter! Spring is in the air! Pastel colors are back in season. The pink, orange and purple colored smoke in Filippo Minelli’s color explosion at Somerset House seems to mark the arrival of this time of year. Titled Silences and Shapes, the performance piece was part of the Somerset House exhibition Venturing Beyond, which is currently on view.
