BORN IN THE BRONX: AN EXHIBITION OF ARTIFACTS FROM THE CORNELL HIP HOP COLLECTION
Open June 26 - July 26 
620 Greenwich Street at the corner of Leroy Street
In 2007, the Cornell Hip Hop Collection was established by Johan Kugelberg. In the years since, the Cornell Hip Hop Collection has grown to be the largest archive of hip hop materials in the world, spanning over four decades and over 200,000 objects. Last summer, Boo-Hooray and Gavin Brown’s Enterprise held an open archiving of Afrika Bambaataa’s record collection prior to its delivery to Cornell University. This summer, we’re staging an exhibition of the most amazing items we identified alongside highlights from the Cornell archive including:
Hand-written lyrics by Afrika Bambaataa.
Original records from Bambaataa’s collection.
Artworks and hand-painted hip hop clothing by Buddy Esquire, the king of the flyer.
Original animation and photography from Charlie Ahearn’s Wild Style.
Iconic photographs by Joe Conzo, the man who the New York Times said “took hip hop’s baby pictures.”
A sound-installation of rare live early hip hop performances from Breakbeat Lenny Roberts’ collection.
SURPRISE GUESTS will be DJing. Join Boo-Hooray/Gavin Brown’s Enterprise on social media to keep posted on who and when. Several crates of Afrika Bambaataa’s duplicate records from his personal collection will be for sale on a first-come-first-serve basis. These records are stickered as coming from Bambaataa’s stash. An exclusive signed silkscreen print portrait of Afrika Bambaataa by Paul Insect in a numbered edition of 150 will be available for sale on a first-come-first-serve basis.
