The landmark exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego documents the historic revolution in visual culture, in which the codes and icons of the everyday — found on the streets in graffiti, signage, waste, tattoos, advertising, and graphic design — have been appropriated and used as an integral part of contemporary art-making.

Viva La Revolución is a multifaceted exhibition that explores the dialogue between artists and the urban landscape with works both in the Museum’s galleries as well as at public sites throughout downtown San Diego.

The exhibition includes a diverse range of 20 artists from 10 countries including Mark Bradford, Shepard Fairey, Dr. Lakra, Barry McGee, Ryan McGinness, Moris, Swoon, and Os Gemeos, that are linked together by how their work addresses urban issues.
