Video Gallery: Juan Obando - Museum Mixtape
Real Art Ways presents Museum Mixtape (Dirty South Edition), a 2014 video album in which rap artists perform live critiques of museums in the southeast United States. This work was created by artist Juan Obando and produced as a Rhizome commission, an affiliate in residence at the New Museum in New York City.
From the Artist Statement
“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.”
