Preview: "The Art of Rap: Remixed and Mastered" at ArtNowNY TONIGHT

By - Thursday, July 26th, 2012

ArtNowNY and The City Firm bring to you the Art of Rap: Remixed and Mastered, a exhibition curated by Miz Metro that traces the influence of Hip-Hop on mainstream culture. The exhibition is inspired by the full-length feature documentary film directed by Ice-T entitled “Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap“. The exhibition will feature rare and never before seen photographs by legendary graffiti artist and photographer Edwin Sacasa (Shirt King Phade) and master documentary photographer, Jamel Shabazz. Their photos document hip hop culture in the 1980’s, with early pictures of upcoming celebrities that would eventually turn into hip hop royalty. Keith Shocklee’s remixing of classic hip hop works by Public Enemy for Art of Rap will also be featured as well as innovative print work on the photographs by master printmaker Ryan Keeley. The opening reception will be held tonight, Thursday, July 26 from 6 to 9 pm and the show will stay open in the gallery until September 8th at ArtNowNY at 548 W. 28th street, 2nd floor, New York, NY. Check out the photos and flyer below.
