Announcing The Fridge Summer Line-up

On 03, May 2013 | In Exhibitions | By tfdcadmin

We’re presenting work from DC greats HKS 181 and Aniekan Udofia and Buenos Aires-based collective Graffiti Mundo in June and July of this year. August brings The Elements of Hip Hop featuring multiple exhibitions, workshops, a b-boy competition and more.


The line-up:

HKS 181 and Aniekan Udofia
IT WAS WRITTEN
June 7 – June 30
Opening Reception June 7, 7 – 11pm

DC street artists and muralists HKS 181 and Aniekan Udofia explore the art of storytelling through hip hop lyrics. Following the belief that the importance of narrative in hip hop music is declining, the artists are creating works that translate the poetry of select songs into a visual landscape. They listen between the lines to reinterpret the wordplay into surprising, new creations.

Graffiti Mundo
The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires
July 13 – July 28
Opening Reception July 13, 7 – 11pm

Buenos Aires-based collective Graffiti Mundo brings a group of street artists from Latin America to DC. The city walls in Buenos Aires do more than just host edgy works of graffiti art. They have been used to challenge dictators. They have broadcast the stories the media wouldn’t touch. They serve as a channel for expression, art, activism, political propaganda and public opinion. The walls of Buenos Aires talk to those who are prepared to listen.
