video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

For too long, Los Angeles hip hop has been seen as one dimensional 'gangsta rap.' With this new series, we're giving our city's hip hop artists an amazing platform to show not only our community, but the world, that we have so much more to offer.
– Murs

Through the Mic is a new concert series at LACMA that explores contemporary Los Angeles hip hop, with an emphasis on the diversity of L.A.-based artists. Co-curated by LACMA and hip hop artist Murs, concerts will take place in front of artist Chris Burden's iconic Urban Light sculpture on the third Thursday of every month, May through October 2012. The event is presented in collaboration with Guerilla Union and Cashmere Agency.
