(I Can) Feel the Pulse: Hip-Hop and Contemporary Art

Juxtapoz // Monday, 16 Aug 2010

Guest curated by Charlie Dronkers, the exhibit links the origin of hip-hop to the current visual hip-hop culture. (I Can) Feel the Pulse refers to the voice of protest of the repressed black population of the United States, powerfully expressed in the iconic work of Emory Douglas, who later became Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party. Emory Douglas' revolutionary work is shown alongside works by Jefferson Pinder, Dzine (Carlos Rolon), Patrick Martinez, Hiphop Chocolate, Haruka Sakatani and Huang Yulong.

 

Special events: In connection to the exhibition at MAMA, they welcome Emory Douglas personally. Douglas will present a lecture in Rotterdam and a master class. Dates and location to be announced.
