This series explores the influence of music on contemporary art practices, focusing on New York in the 1980s and 1990s and the birth of “remix culture.” These films and videos examine the birth of hip-hop; new articulations of feminism in video chain letters, zines, and raucous art and music performances; AIDS activism in public service announcements, street posters, and concerts; the continued artistic development of music videos; and the rise of the digital domain, where sound and image acquired a curious parity as sampled bits of electronic information, raising the curtain on new creative possibilities.

Organized by Barbara London, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art.
