The last decade has seen the rise of artists who have rejected academia to embrace urban culture as their inspiration. The exhibition Viva la Revoluci n: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape represents the pinnacle of this progression through an epic convergence of 20 artists from around the world. The urban landscape serves as the inspiration and canvas in an exhibition comprised of four parts: work inside the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), Public Commissions and Interventions, Bombing, and a Collaborative Site. Barry McGee, Moris, Ryan McGinness, Mark Bradford, Dr. Lakra, Swoon, Os Gemoes and others contribute paintings, prints, sculpture, murals, and installations, while Invader and Shepard Fairey create large outdoor murals and Dzine embellishes the city with tricked out pedicabs. This companion catalogue to the exhibition includes essays by curator Pedro Alonzo and Alex Baker, and a preface by Hugh M. Davies.
