Spring 2010: Two Turntables and a Microphone/Lady Pink Graffiti Slideshow

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In Spring 2010 the University of Iowa Museum of Art will run the exhibition Two Turntables and a Microphone: Hiphop Contexts Featuring Harry Allen's Part of the Permanent Record (co curated by Deborah Whaley and Kembrew McLeod). The exhibition will feature stunning images of the early days of hip-hop by the photographer and journalist Harry Allen. It will also feature artifacts that situate the history of hip-hop, including event posters, music, and a slide show of graffiti artist Lady Pink's work. The exhibition opens in late March and will take place at the UI Black Box Theater. This blog will feature updates and press information about the exhibition as well as written contributions by those involved with the exhibition.

As a quick teaser of what to expect, here is a slide show I put together of images of Lady Pink's work. She will come to UI in April 2010, and I, along with Studio Arts students, will create a mural with her as the guiding artistic force. In the slideshow below, I included an interview with her that I excerpted from a documentary on youtube (if you have suggestions for this video please let me know):
