Museum Mixtape!

MXM celebrate mixtapes in all formats! We found this mixtape  thanks to Dr. FayMuseum Mixtape, started by Juan Obando received a Rhizome Commission in 2012.

Museum Mixtape is a video-album in which up-and-coming rappers perform improvised freestyle rhymes as live critiques of museums in the southeast United States. The piece aims to create a playful connection between hip-hop narratives and institutional art spaces, reflecting on the current state of cultural economies, institutional community engagement and emerging subcultural forms and their intersections.

Watch the trailer below, more footage can be found on the Museum Mixtape website. We’ll definitely feature future releases!
