This exhibition focuses on one spectacular work in the Cantor’s collection—a sowei mask, used by the women-only Sande Society that is unique to Sierra Leone. Used in dance by senior women of the society, the sowei mask symbolizes knowledge of feminine grace and is part of a young girl’s initiation into adulthood. Thus, for many women of the region, beauty is literally performed into existence through ndoli jowei (the dancing sowei or the sowei mask in performance). Take an in-depth look at a sowei’s aesthetic expressions of elegance, from its serene gaze of inner spirituality to the corpulent neck rolls that signify health and wealth—a beauty as defined and danced by women.

OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ANNOUNCES MAJOR SPRING 2018 EXHIBITION FEATURING THE EVOLUTION OF HIP-HOP

RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom Explores Hip-Hop’s Wide-Reaching Influences on Cultural and Social Movements, Including the West Coast’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s Impacts on this Global Phenomenon

Exhibition to run March 24–August 12, 2018 in OMCA’s Great Hall

(OAKLAND, CA)–Starting from its roots on the streets, before rap, DJing, graffiti, breakdancing, and street fashion launched into mainstream culture, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom, the Oakland Museum of California’s major Spring 2018 exhibition, explores one of the most influential cultural and social movements of the last 50 years.

Opening in OMCA’s Great Hall on March 24, 2018, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom uncovers the under-recognized story of how hip-hop changed the world. Delving into the West Coast’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s influences, the exhibition features insights from artists and hip-hop luminaries about how hip-hop continues to provide a platform for creative self-expression, activism, youth development, and education. 

Visitors will discover the beginnings of hip-hop and learn about the significant roles that California, and Oakland, have played and continue to play in hip-hop’s evolution, including its positive influences in youth development and education. Rooted in African American culture, the essence of hip-hop is self-expression and creativity. The exhibition highlights hip-hop’s innovative nature and reveals how the art form continues to be vital today.

Hip-hop’s many aspects–including DJing, MCing, dance, graffiti, fashion and style, knowledge and wisdom, and entrepreneurialism–will all be explored. Details of hip-hop’s origins and its influence on street art and fashion will be showcased in photographs by Martha Cooper, a photojournalist and former New York Post photographer best known for her documentation of New York City’s graffiti scene of the 1970s and 1980s, and Jamel Shabazz, who is internationally recognized for his images of New York City youth culture in the 1980s. Shabazz’s images have been featured across the world at Art Basel in Miami, the Brooklyn Museum, and The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Significant artifacts and objects will be displayed, including original party flyers, rare photographs, and contemporary artworks, including a tapestry by renowned New York-based portraitist Kehinde Wiley, who has recently had a nationally touring museum solo exhibition as well as having recently been commissioned to paint Barack Obama’s official presidential portrait. The exhibition will also feature a dedicated space for reflection and meaning-making, which includes a central reading room, offering select reading material and artifacts that connect hip-hop with its deeper cultural principles.

RESPECT recognizes the sensational essence of a movement that has become a unifying culture throughout the world,” said René de Guzman, director of exhibition strategy and senior curator of art at the Oakland Museum of California. “With this exhibition, OMCA sets the stage for a deeper exploration of hip-hop: the wisdom and style it has brought to many aspects of all our lives, from the language that we use to the clothes that we wear.”

A major part of the exhibition is the Hip-Hop Dojo: a practice, performance, and event space that will come alive with movement and sound. In the space, Museum visitors will be able to explore, learn, and practice hip-hop skills. The gallery features an immersive, multi-projector media environment featuring looping video footage of hip-hop performers and martial artists getting into the flow by Los Angeles-based DJ Mike Relm. Visitors are invited to experiment with the basics of scratching on real beat-making equipment, sit among the bleachers to socialize and play chess, or watch other museum goers perform in this energetic, dynamic space. Visitors can also participate in graffiti-making, and learn breakdance basics by dancing along with expert teachers projected in a shadow dance environment. Talent shows, demonstrations, workshops, and cyphers will be activated within the Dojo throughout the run of the exhibition.
“OMCA is committed to presenting programming that addresses topics of real relevance to our community and that link historic trends to compelling and urgent themes today. In just the past couple of years alone, we’ve presented Altered State: Marijuana in CaliforniaAll Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50; and Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, all of which attracted record attendance and captured the attention of both local communities and the national museum field,” said Director and CEO Lori Fogarty. “RESPECT will continue this vision for the Museum and for our audiences, in this case with a particular exploration of the influence of Oakland and California on this important form of self-expression and creativity.”

RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom will be on view in OMCA’s Great Hall March 24 through August 12, 2018. There is a $4 charge for this special exhibition in addition to regular Museum admission.
