ArtNowNY and The City Firm are pleased to present The Art of Rap: Remixed & Mastered, an exhibition of work that traces the influence of Hip Hop on mainstream culture. Curated by Miz Metro, The Art of Rap: Remixed & Mastered is the official exhibition inspired by the full-length feature documentary film directed by Ice-T entitled, ’Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap’. The exhibition will feature rare and never before seen photographs by legendary New York graffiti artist and photographer Edwin Sacasa AKA ’Shirt King Phade’ and master documentary photographer, Jamel Shabazz. The Art of Rap: Remixed & Mastered will also feature contemporary remixes of Phade’s work by New York artist Ryan Keeley, behind the scenes shots from the filming of ’The Art of Rap’ by associate producer ’Hen Gee’, and a sound piece by Keith Shocklee of Bomb Squad featuring samples used for classic Public Enemy tracks. The opening reception for The Art of Rap: Remixed & Mastered will be held on Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6 to 9pm. Wine will be provided by DiSalvo & Sons.
