3rd Thursday: Hymns, Hers and Hip-Hop

Back in September, the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW) opened a show culled from the Smithsonian's vast collection. African American Art in the 20th Century exhibits 103 diverse paintings, photographs, sculptures and prints by 43 black artists. Now, in conjunction with the exhibit, Albuquerque Poet Laureate and all-around arts champion Hakim Bellamy presents Hymns, Hers and Hip-Hop at the museum’s monthly 3rd Thursday event. He’s designed the evening around the idea that the complexity of the African-American experience and its ongoing impact can be best expressed only through an amalgamation of mediums. Poets, musicians, singers, rappers, DJs and b-boys will bring meticulous beats, keen observations and adroit movements that explore and expand on the exhibit’s themes and connect them to modern hip-hop culture. The free performances shake out from 5 to 8:30pm tonight, and African American Art in the 20th Century will be on view until next January.
