Street Artists Stage Protest Against Jeffrey Deitch


And the Blu controversy rages on… Culture Monster reports that last night a group made up of 20 street artists and war veterans gathered in the empty parking lot of MoCA to hold a protest against the museum’s director, Jeffrey Deitch — and show their support for Blu and freedom of speech. Using a handmade laser graffiti gun, activists took turns tagging the museum wall with what looked like dripping paint and messages like “Dump Deitch!” and “Give us back our walls!” They also projected a photo of Blu’s mural back onto the whitewashed wall, superimposing it with the word “censored.” Click through to get a better look at what went down, and let us know what you think.
