If YOU in DC...

On JUNE 7, 7 - 11PM, The Fridge will open IT WAS WRITTEN, the lastest from the greatest DC street artists and muralists ANIEKAN UDOFIA and HKS 181. Hip hop’s guiding principle of chronicling the culture of urban Americans has been replaced by an egocentric bravado rooted in fantasy. The work in It Was Written is born out of Aniekan and HKS 181’s desire to document the importance of the commonly shared narrative to hip hop music. The artists borrow from lyrics by the likes of Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest and The Last Emperor to create paintings that re-imagine these classic, inspired songs. It Was Written will be on view through June 30.
