Barry McGee Lecture at the Carbon Festival 2013

Barry McGee is one of the most successful artists to make the transition from the street to the galleries. Under his alias, Twist, he was one of the most skilled and prolific graffiti writers in San Francisco in the 1990’s. McGee’s art world success has landed him exhibitions in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums around the world and recent large scale public murals from San Diego to Sydney, and Boston to Brooklyn.

Barry McGee’s influence in the graffiti and art world is undeniable, making his lecture one of the most highly anticipated of the Carbon Festival 2013, which took place earlier this month in Melbourne, Australia. In lieu of talking about his own work, McGee prepared a half-hour slideshow presentation of 1990’s graffiti photos from SF and NY. The coy presentation was chock full of quips and anecdotes, making reference to writers like MQ, BNE, Adek, Lewy, Revs, Cost, and more.

Disclaimer: The audio quality isn’t great, nor is it synched with the visual, which at times could be confusing. None the less, between the flicks and the stories, we think this video is worth watching.
