Leroy Moore: Black/Brown International Disability Art and Hip-Hop
Oct 10, 2017
When you think of the history of hip-hop you might not automatically think of disabled artists and their influence and contributions to the genre. But during the Whitney’s June 2 event, Leroy Moore: Black/Brown International Disability Art and Hip-hop, audience members traveled from past to present in a multimedia presentation by artist Leroy Moore. In a mixture of performance, lecture, and video, Moore drew on the often overlooked history of disabled artist of color and the eventual emergence of Krip-hop; a movement that seeks to accommodate and celebrate artists with disabilities.
