Hip-Hop du Bronx Exhibition

Last month, I visited the Institut du Monde Arabe for the Hip Hop du Bronx exhibition. It is a museum which was opened in 1987 (My favourite year :P) to disseminate information about Arab culture and values and is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. The building itself, designed by Jean Nouvel, is a stunning work of architecture. The rooftop is also worth a visit with a beautiful view of the Notre Dame &  Île de la Cité.



The exhibition was one of the coolest I have ever seen & experienced. There were wooden turntables, photographs, street art, rooms full of graffiti, hip-hop clothing & accessories, short films, music videos and a demonstration of mixing and scratching discs. Felt like I was in the Bronx. I tried to photograph as much as I could (phone photos only). Enjoy!
