ATLiens Visit Planet MARS

Chastain Arts Center and Gallery, 135 Chastain Park Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30342

ATLiens Visit Planet MARS captures the early origins of Hip-Hop communities in two creative capitals—Atlanta and Marseille. As Hip-Hop began to spread beyond New York and Los Angeles in the early 1990s, communities around the world began to claim it as their own, and with that agency, began to frame their own identities within the culture.

In this exhibition, photographers Shannon McCollum and Jean-Pierre Maero present images and videos from the early 1990s to early 2000s from their personal archives that offer rare access to the foundational artists, spaces, and moments of Hip-Hop in Atlanta and Marseille, respectively, and help compare and contrast the creative output of cities that would become contemporary cultural capitals.
