THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 7–8 PM
DIALOGUES STAGE
THE CULTURE | HIP HOP & CONTEMPORARY ART IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Panelists: Chance the Rapper and Asma Naeem, PhD.
Moderated by Nate Freeman.


Join Chance the Rapper in conversation with Asma Naeem, co-curator of the exhibition The Culture: Hip Hop & Contemporary Art in the 21st Century, which traveled from the Baltimore Museum of Art to the Saint Louis Art Museum in 2023. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of hip hop’s birth, the exhibition brought together the past two decades in hip hop considered through a wide range of artifacts and mediums. Featured in the exhibition—alongside iconic works like Gordon Parks’ photograph "A Great Day in Hip Hop" (1998) and Mark Bradford’s stunning canvas "Biggie, Biggie, Biggie" (2002)—was the same red overalls (designed by Sheila Rashid) and classic black "New Era 3" cap worn by Chance the Rapper at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Here, Chance will discuss his own contributions to hip hop through his career as well as involvement in contemporary art through a multi-year collaboration with visual artists from his upcoming Starline Gallery album. Moderated by Nate Freeman of Vanity Fair, the panel hopes to contribute to the growing scholarship around hip hop and its contributions to international contemporary art.

This panel will be followed by a signing of The Culture: Hip Hop & Contemporary Art in the 21st Century with Asma Naeem.
