What Is Hip-Hop Feminism?

Short answer: it’s awesome. And it’s currently on view at Cue Art Foundation.

Curated by Katie Cercone, the exhibition Goddess Clap Back: Hip-Hop Feminism in Art brings together various artists who, in their work, subvert the tropes of mainstream hip-hop: the unabashed consumerism and celebrity worship, the heteronormativity, the machismo bordering on misogyny. One of my favorite finds was Michelle Marie Charles.
