Whoop Dee Doo are a part of the PICA TBA 2011 Festival. They were our guests on Art Focus September 13th.
About the group: An all-ages, anything-goes variety show, Whoop Dee Doo enlists diverse participants and collaborates with a wild range of performers—from science teachers and Celtic bagpipers to clogging troupes, drill teams, and drag queens—all for an audience of wide-eyed children. This chaotic mix is an awkward yet endearing experience that embraces a huge range of tastes and sensibilities and strips away divisions between high and low art. While curated by the group, Whoop Dee Doo remains a truly inclusive endeavor that celebrates difference and unabashed self-expression.

Guest host Wendy Webb speaks with LA Street Phantom aka Joey Krebs, a longstanding force in the L.A. street art scene.
The Denizen Gallery @Milepost 5 and the Plum Bum Gallery brought Krebs to Portland to perform "You Don't Know What Art i$” for the closing of his visual art show “Blacklisted and Banned.” He premiered the piece on this installment of Art Focus.
Joey Krebs, media activist, street artist, performer, and visual artist, along with his collective ARTSAVESLIVES, calls the commodiﬁcation of "street art" into question. Recently Krebs was one of the protesters of the censorship of the 2011 MOCA grafﬁti show.
