Hip Hop exhibit arrives at Smithsonian 1,022 Years Early

September 19, 2008

“I can see what rap can be: glorious
Put in the Smithsonian on podiums for holy hymns”

–Deltron, 3030

And in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery this exhibit of hip hop inspired visual artwork has arrived 1,022 years early of Deltron’s (aka Del, aka Del the Funky Homosapien) prediction of the year 3030.

I wish I could make it out to D.C. for this show, the installation shots look pretty good at least from the pictures online. Finally someone is presenting graffiti straight on the wall. I think the style and genre can lose a lot of power when it gets put into a different medium. Click the image to go to the site.
