A Lyrical Masterpiece

  • A Lyrical Masterpiece is a concept for a visual and aural exhibition exploring the connections between hip-hop and fine art. The exhibition takes notable pieces by fine art masters and combines them with rap lyrics from hip-hop legends. The artwork is presented in it’s original form and music that is referenced in the exhibition is played throughout on a larger-than-life boombox. Rappers and their corresponding artists are represented by equally large cassette tapes, also acting as a navigation tool. As a song is played, the corresponding artwork lights drop and lyrics are projected across it in striking green light, creating a new, lyrical masterpiece.
