Event description

Description

Culture Move (Sampled History) is an exhibition by London-based artist Jaykoe, as part of the London Borough of Culture - London mayor Sadiq Khan's initiative to celebrate creativity across the capital, awarded to Brent for 2020.

Spanning art, music and performances, Culture Move is a dynamic exhibition tracing the diverse cultural heritage of Brent. The show explores the history of sampled music in the borough since the advent of hip-hop in the 1980s - celebrating a cultural movement initiated and led by young people as a positive creative outlet that continues to resonate across the generations.

The exhibition documents the recording artists, studios, pirate radio stations and urban spaces associated with the history of hip-hop and sampled music with a view to create new work that shines a light on the unique history of the area. Historical images and objects from the Brent Museum archive will also be used, visually sampling and rearranging these elements to form new compositions informed by music production techniques.

Jaykoe is also working with drummers and percussionists from different cultural backgrounds within Brent to create the video installation Drums and Base. He will remix the sounds to create a vibrant new artwork exhibited at the museum, along with a vinyl record and live performance.

The exhibition opening will conclude with a 30 minute performance lead by musical director, Levon Parikian, in which 15 musicians will play instruments from many cultural backgrounds.

Culture Move aims to recognise the distinct cultural output of Brent and its surrounding area, connecting with the shared creativity of multiple generations within the artistic space of the museum.

Exhibition opening and performance: 6:00 - 8:30 pm

Public transport:
Underground:10 minute walk from Willesden Green station (Jubilee Line)
Buses - 52, 302, 98, 260, 266, 460
