Following the exhibition’s debut last month, the Art of Hip Hop has proudly provided a home for iconic works created by Hip Hop’s unsung heroes: the photographers, album cover artists, graffiti legends, and logo designers who shaped the visual identity of Hip Hop as we know and love it today. Currently, the Art of Hip Hop acts as the first entity in the world exclusively focused on the gallery representation of famous Hip Hop photographers from varying generations.
Currently on display at the Art Of Hip Hop is the inaugural exhibition, entitled From the Bronx to the Beach, showcasing a prominent mural of Hip Hop’s first NYC DJ, Kool Herc, to rare vintage ephemera of Miami’s own pioneer Uncle Luke. Visitors can expect highly immersive educational moments that provide the most interesting ways of exhibiting the works of famed Hip Hop photographers like Janette Beckman, Erin Patrice O’Brien, Martha Cooper, Mike Miller, Henry Chalfant, Matt Doyle, Lisa Leone, Joe Conzo, and Daniel Hastings. The exhibition also shines a special spotlight on Miami’s own Hip Hop history, capturing it through the lenses of local historian and photographer Derick G. and photographer Esdras T. Thelusma.
From the Bronx to the Beach, will be on display until February 28, 2024, tickets are available for purchase at theartofhiphop.com ($12).
