BILL RASTETTER: STREET ART REINTERPRETED
January 16–May 29, 2016
Curated by Sandra Chanis
Inspired by the relationship between art and activism expressed in graffiti on the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina, photographer Bill Rastetter sought to create a broader spectrum of experience for the viewer by “mashing up” two separate images to create each of his final pieces. Each is the result of overlaying two full-frame 60-megapixel photographs allowing the viewer to see the bottom image “through” the top image. Also included in the mashups are overlaid images from works by well known artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Federico Botero, among others, all displayed at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires.
OMA would like to thank Receptos, Inc. and Bill Rastetter for the loan of all artwork and sponsorship of this exhibition.
Limited edition prints of these photographs in both 45″ x 60″ and 27″ x 36″ formats are available through the Madison Gallery in La Jolla. Visit them at www.madisongalleries.com.
