Welcome to THHM announcements, news, and media for July 2022! Thank you for being part of our community of supporters, artists, fans, and advocates. We’ve got one significant announcement this month, so without further ado…
[R]Evolution of Hip Hop – The Golden Era circa 1986 –
The long-awaited curation of the [R]Evolution of Hip Hop continues to represent at the Bronx Terminal Market. We’re very excited to announce the final timeline installation of the exhibition, 1986-1990, known as “the Golden Era of Hip Hop” opens on July 12, 2022. Seven months in the making, we present the dawn of a new age in Hip Hop and Rap music, a new generation of MCs, DJs, producers, and dancers made remarkable advancements in artistry and technology. We will look forward to welcoming you to The Golden Era: 1986 – 1990.
In the words of curator and icon Prime Minister Pete Nice, put on your shell-toe Adidas Superstars and take a step back into time at the Revolution of Hip Hop 1986 to 1990. Experience the street fashions of Dapper Dan, the beats of DJ Scott LaRock, the rhymes of Biz Markie, and the culture of Hip Hop that was chronicled by “Video Music Box,” Word Up Magazine, The Source, “The Arsenio Hall Show,” and scores of other outlets.
Executive Director Rocky Bucano calls this [R]Evolution “undoubtedly our most engaging, creative, entertaining celebration of Hip Hop History produced since we opened the pop-up in 2019.”
It takes a village, and our co-creators/collaborators include Microsoft, BaseBoss, Collab Studio NYC, The Related Companies, and the Bronx Terminal Market. Our curators are the aforementioned Prime Minister Pete Nice and the legendary Paradise Gray.
The exhibition is open Tuesday-Saturday, 12-7pm EDT and on Sunday 1-6:30pm EDT at Bronx Terminal Market, 610 Exterior Street, Bronx, NY. Tickets $20, must be reserved in advance. Proof of vaccination or a negative within 24 hours COVID-19 test is required for entry. Space is limited.
