Contact High: “A Visual History of Hip-Hop” curated by creative director, Vikki Tobak and Fab 5 Freddy brought their exhibition from Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles to International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City. This launched a new home base for Contact High which is on display until May 18, 2020.
Contact High brings to life what hip-hop fans crave — an assortment of historical visual moments. The iconic photos are jaw-dropping and mesmerizing. If you love the culture, get down to Contact High. It is the real deal — an absolute Woodstock of hip-hop’s photography Gods. The list goes on, but I’ll share a few. Joe Conzo, Barron Claiborne, Danny Clinch and Gordon Parks just to name a few. It’s overwhelming, and all I’m saying, when you see the picture with NaS and TuPac standing next to Redman, make sure you snap a photo and tag Al Pereira. It’s Contact High all-the-way.
