Celebrating 50 Years of Hip Hop: Exhibition

Tags: Gallery News

From Tuesday, August 1 to Saturday, September 2, 2023, this exhibition will be held at ACG in celebration of Hip Hop’s culture and overall multidisciplinary influence on people, especially creatives. 

On August 11th, 1973, a back-to-school party was held in the Bronx, at 1520 Sedgwick Ave. It became known over the years as the party that started the culture of Hip Hop. Hip Hop is more than just a style of music; it's a culture that began with four elements: MC’ing, B-boy/B-girl, graffiti, and DJ’ing. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of Hip Hop and to commemorate this monumental occasion there are events of varying degrees planned around the world, including the Capital Region at Albany Center Gallery.

Exhibit Curators are all regional artists themselves and were selected to put together this exhibition: Curators include Robert Cooper, Truemaster, and BoogieRez. If you would like to read more about each curator, visit here: Celebrating 50 Years of Hip Hop: Curators | Albany Center Gallery
