The Mixtape Museum (MXM) is an archive project established to collect, preserve, and share knowledge related to mixtape history.
The MXM is devoted to advancing public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and impact mixtapes have made around the world. While encouraging the research of mixtapes as records of time, place and situation, it will also examine the individuals that have shaped their existence.
Through exhibitions, technology, publications, symposia, collaborative projects, and other partnerships, our aim is to create an environment that encourages dialogue between scholars, music professionals, and enthusiasts on the mixtapes’ various functions in society.
In loving memory of Orpheus ‘Justo’ Faison
