The Culture: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art in the 21st Century, on view at the Cincinnati Art Museum from June 28 – September 29.

In celebration of hip hop’s remarkable, decades-long impact and influence on society, the Cincinnati Art Museum will host the groundbreaking exhibition The Culture: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art in the 21st Century, on view from June 28–September 29, 2024.

The Culture: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art in the 21st Century showcases more than 90 works of art by some of today’s most important and celebrated artists —such as Roberto Lugo, Carrie Mae Weems, William Cordova, Hassan Hajjaj and Hank Willis Thomas–and fashion brands, with looks from Gucci, Cross Colours and Vivienne Westwood. A range of music ephemera will also be on display.

Rooted in the origins of hip-hop in the mid-1970s as a cultural expression of Black, Latinx, and Afro-Latinx youth, The Culture explores the transformation of contemporary art and material culture through the collision of hip-hop, technology, and the marketplace.

The Culture: Hip Hop and Contemporary Art in the 21st Century is organized by the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Saint Louis Art Museum. The exhibition is generously supported by the Ford Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The Cincinnati Art Museum presentation is made possible by P&G with additional funding provided by PNC Charitable Trust. It is accompanied by a comprehensive catalog with contributions from more than 50 artists, writers, scholars, curators, and arts leaders.
