Ill Street Blues

I just finished reading Rage is Back, which I greatly enjoyed. Its exploration of the graffiti/writing scene in New York has sent me off on my own exploration. Today, I went to the "Ill Street Blues" show at the Corcoran. I highly recommend seeing it before it closes tomorrow. Here are just a few images from the show:

Many of the images criticize greed, gentrification, and capitalism as a monstrous force, while people of various sorts hide away in the detritus (or the beauty) of the post-industrial city creating a whole other social world.

P.S. If the artists want me to take down the slideshow, just let me know.
