Street Level is a show happening at the Nasher Museum of Contemporary Art at Duke University. The show features work by Mark Bradford, William Cordova, and Robin Rhode as they explore the ways that cultural territories are defined and space is transformed in urban environments. For Bradford, Cordova and Rhode the streets of Los Angeles, Lima, Miami, New York, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Berlin act as sources of inspiration. They share a common interest in found materials and artistic gestures such as sneakers thrown over a telephone wire, stripping cars, spontaneous shrines and piles of discarded objects that help build a gritty foundation for their art.
