Hip Hop: Conscious, Unconscious, which is on view at Fotografiska through May 20, amplifies the individual creatives involved in the movement. The exhibition also surveys the women who trail blazed amid hip-hop’s male-dominated environment, hip-hop’s regional and stylistic diversity, and the turning point when hip-hop became a billion-dollar industry that continues to mint global household names. The exhibition was created in partnership with Mass Appeal.
