This exhibition showcases photography, painting, and sculpture to explore remix as a crucial method of creation within the Hip-Hop genre. Remix is a sonic metaphor for the active reinvention of Black life as a means for repairing colonial ruptures. To remix, as put by scholar Katherine McKittrick, is to “engender new contexts with old histories.” Remix frames the artistic works of Raque Ford, Adama Delphine Fawundu, David Ellis, and Camella Ehlke. In the era where Hip-Hop celebrates 50 years of cultural innovation, these four artists illuminate the fact that Black Diasporic remixing has always been a part of a broader survival strategy of storytelling and preserving memory. Remixing becomes an expansive framework for composing new futures with poetic resonance, and much like the experimental remixes found on a Hip-Hop artist’s b-side tracks, encourages ongoing dialogue and constant creative evolution.

Co-curated by Jenny Gerow and Zahra Sherzad in collaboration with Taylor Dews
