Listed in order of my visiting them in the building.
Not my scene, because I’ve never been a big hip-hop fan and I didn’t even recognize many of the famous names portrayed. I enjoyed the late-70s — late 80s esthetic though.
One of the smaller exhibits, did not grab me.
Oh my, so conceptual. Around 3 or 4 works (digitally altered images, as is usual) the artist/museum had crafted rooms echoing them. So one of them was a person using a stepladder to peer over a maze. Adjoining it was a literal stepladder with the room painted the same way.
The exhibit text was exhorting us to break out of “filter bubbles” or something, which in the age of alt-right chuds infesting the internet feels disingenous.
Now this is right up my alley - cool (“svala” in Swedish) high-key B&W images of details in the Stockholm urban landscape, interspersed with portraits of young people in the photographers New Romantic milieu. Very 80s and thus very nostalgic.
I mostly skipped this, both because I wasn’t really in the mood for discourse around the violence to women’s bodies in contempory Iran, and because it was very crowded.
