Tate Modern's Street Art

Street Art Poster (2008)Tate Modern's Street Art opened yesterday and continues until 25 August. Six foreign artists were commissioned to paint Tate's river facade: Blu, JR, Sixeart, Nunca, Os GĂȘmeos and the artist collective Faile. Not a Banksy in sight. And these artists can't hold a candle to him. Do genuine street artists accept commissions? Tate thinks so. It claims this is "the first major public museum display of street art in London". Don't get excited, folks. Unlike Banksy, these artists have nothing to say. But the exhibition is free.
