Blokhedz

New BLOKHEDZ exhibit featured at the Hip Hop Archive and Research Institute.   
Under the guidance of Professor Marcyliena Morgan, the Hip-Hop Archive is doing crucial work in the scholarship and preservation of the culture.


The Hip-Hop Archive at Harvard University started in 2003 and became widely praised in 2013 when they launched the Nasir Jones fellowship. This poignant moment was captured in the climactic moments of Nas’ HBO documentary  “Time is illmatic”. 

The Hip Hop Archive launched the exhibit titled BLOKHEDZ: Music, Magic, & Mayhem on April 10th.  Kicking off the gala event was a guided tour of the gallery highlighting a timeline of Blokhedz inspiration followed by a panel discussion headlined by the Madtwiinz featuring luminaries from the worlds of comics and academia. 

The exhibit features - the Debut of new Blokhedz animation, animated webisodes, digital comic books, and vinyl toys.  The art featured includes Hip-Hop themed comic art from Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1 and the DMC comic.  Pieces produced exclusively for the exhibit include graffiti installation(link to our other post) by Merk Those and Street Legends Ink’s Self Uno and a life-sized sculpt of Young Blak with his boombox robot sidekick, Audio II(pic link). The exhibit will be on display through July 24th.  If you are in the Greater Boston Area, don’t miss out! For gallery hours and group tours go to the Hutchins center  for details.
