Hip Hop and Contemporary Portraiture

Author:  Brandon Brame Fortune, Frank H. Goodyear III, & Jobyl A. Boone

Images of hip hop performers are as pervasive in our culture as the music itself. This full-color booklet highlights the six artists and one poet—Kehinde Wiley, David Scheinbaum, Jefferson Pinder, Tim Conlon, Dave Hupp, Shinique Smith, and Nikki Giovanni—who appeared in the exhibition and captures the vibrancy and energy that characterizes hip hop.
