Get Rich orDie Tryin’

Curated by Lars Lindemann & Paolo Woods

From the Bronx to the runways of the biggest fashion brands, rap, now 50, has come a long way. This exhibition aims to tell the story of a culture created by the most disenfranchised, who, through hip hop, found an avenue for expression, identity, creation and, finally, wealth and acceptance. On show there are the work of some of the most respected artists who have focused on hip hop but also the lesser-known photographers who followed the birth of this movement and crystalized its iconography, who worked for legendary publications like Vibe and shot some of the most recognizable album covers ever produced.

The texts that accompany the exhibition are written by Bonz Malone, one of the most respected voices of the movement.

The photographers in the group show are:
Marc Baptiste, Janette Beckman, Sophie Bramly, Drew Carolan, Custom Gold Grillz, Brian Finke, Philip Knott, Dana Lixenberg, Clay Patrick McBride, Johnny Nelson, Jamel Shabbaz, Victor Zea
