Moroccan contemporary artist, Hassan Hajjaj is among the creatives set to showcase at the upcoming St. Louis Art Museum exhibition titled ‘The Culture: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art in the 21st Century.’ The Hip Hop show kicks off on August 19 and continues until January 1 is set to highlight pressing themes surrounding the culture of the genre ranging from capitalism to racial identity and commodification.
Hajjaj, the Andy Warhol-inspired artist, will contribute to the showcase with his 2017 photograph titled ‘Cardi B Unity.’ Known for his eclectic printed fabrics, the vibrant piece showcases the American Hip Hop singer dressed in a checkered black and yellow dress as she poses on plastic green tea boxes with the ultimate pink star backdrop.
Along with Hajjaj, the exhibition will explore themes of Hip Hop through a myriad of mediums that vary from music, visual and performing arts, and fashion, to even technology. With the exhibition, there will also be a showcase of artwork never before shown in Saint Louis by the world’s most renowned artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Mark Bradford.
