Street Level presents a focused selection of photography, video, large-scale canvases, intimate works on paper, and sculptural installation by three promising artists—Mark Bradford (Los Angeles), William Cordova (Lima, Miami, New York) and Robin Rhode (Cape Town, Johannesburg, Berlin)—whose works draw directly from street culture. The sidewalks, curbs, alleys, and abandoned lots of their respective cities provide the materials, vernacular, and sites of their distinctive practices. Combining familiar forms like maps of metropolitan grids, street music, and graffiti with their own sophisticated aesthetics, they create works that both celebrate and critique how cultural territory is defined and transformed in urban environments.
