Queen Latifah and Whoopi Goldberg Co-Curate "Hip Hop at 50" Exhibition

A tribute to the genre’s resilience, creativity and societal influence.

Queen Latifah and Whoopi Goldberg, two prominent figures in the world of hip-hop, have joined forces to curate the “Hip Hop at 50” exhibition, commemorating the 50th anniversary of this influential genre.

The showcase boasts a collection of 50 photographs that vividly trace the evolution of hip-hop from its origins in the Bronx to its current global prominence. These images, handpicked by Queen Latifah and Whoopi Goldberg, not only pay tribute to the genre’s resilient spirit but also reflect the strength of the hip-hop community.

Adorning the gallery walls are the works of renowned photographers, including Danny Clinch, Timothy White, Lynn Goldsmith, Josh Cheuse, Mike Miller and Jonathan Mannion. The curated assemblage also features iconic personalities in hip-hop history, such as Run-DMC, Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, The Notorious B.I.G., Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Eminem and the Wu-Tang Clan, among others. Through their camera lenses, these photographers have captured instances of vulnerability, resilience and creativity that have become emblematic of hip-hop’s cultural significance.

“Hip Hop at 50” will run from August 10 to 24, delivering an immersive experience at two locations: the Morrison Hotel Gallery Sunset Marquis in Los Angeles and the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York City.

And in case you missed it, Moral Turgeman delivers an ode to the not-so-magical nature of mushrooms in “Rooted Signals.”
