Juan Obando presents at Reverse Art Space in Brooklyn

Juan Obando, assistant professor of art, will be presenting his project proposal, Museum Mixtape, at The Impossible Project artist talk series at Reverse Art Space, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The presentation is at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at Reverse Art Space at 28 Frost St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Impossible Project series seeks to promote dialogue, exchange, and interaction between artists and general public. 

Museum Mixtape is an album and a series of videos in which amateur rappers perform freestyle rhymes as live critiques of museums in the southeast United States. The project aims to create a playful connection between hip-hop narratives and institutional art spaces while reflecting on the current state of cultural economies, institutional community engagement and emerging subcultural forms and their intersections. This project was granted a 2012 Rhizome Commission and is currently in development.
