​Bring the Noise: Hip Hop at 50 and Til Infinity

March 25 All day

Using an NPR segment of Pop Culture Happy Hour, namely, “The hip-hop verse that changed my life,” as a point of departure, AFR’s “‘Bring the Noise’: Hip Hop at 50 and Til Infinity” is an interactive hip hop exhibit that celebrates the 50th anniversary of hip hop.  It will feature hip hop memorabilia, including books, magazines, albums, etc. that reflect the influence of hip hop on visual culture, identity, and community.  AFR hopes to include the voices of City Tech’s community by soliciting artwork, essays, poems, and other creative writing to be included in a catalog that will accompany the exhibit. All submissions will be included and credited to the author.


The exhibit will open the week of April 15, 2024, and will coincide with our Spring 2024 event, “Supa Dupa Fly: LGBTQ+ Hip Hop Til Infinity” to be held on April 16, 2024. Details coming soon on how we can partner on this event as well.  All submissions due to Tanzania Garland (TGarland@citytech.cuny.edu) by March 25, 2024.
