Harlem School of The Arts Presents
Hip Hop Fine Art: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
Opening Reception: Friday September 23, 2016 6-9pm ( FREE EVENT )
Will you be the next hashtag? Hashtags represent a connection and a community of voices that demand to be heard and recognized. The digital revolution has allowed artist and activist the ability to educate, communicate and highlight key issues facing our society. Hip Hop Fine Art: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised connects the expression of Hip Hop culture with the media of fine art with a focus on political issues and current events. Artist Isis Kenney’s political cartoons are politically charged with the goal of creating dialogue about contemporary issues.
Hip Hop and Fine Art have traditionally been seen as two different worlds. Considered an oxymoron to some Hip Hop Fine Art aims to entertain, educate and inspire. We’re Passionate about highlighting the positive impact of Hip Hop Culture. Hip Hop Fine Art aims to expand the perception of Hip Hop by bringing the culture’s electric vibrancy into our homes and offices, through fine art and now home decor. Please join us Friday September 23, 2016 for the solo exhibit.
Event Location: 645 St Nicholas Ave, New York, NY 10030
