Yes Yes Y’all: The Birth of Hip Hop Exhibit

Deitch Projects will present a show of historic

photos and flyers from the first decade of Hip Hop at Deitch Brooklyn in New

York. The exhibition celebrates the publication of "Yes Yes Y’all: The

Experience Music Project Oral History of Hip-Hop’s First Decade" by

Jim Fricke and Charlie Ahearn with an introduction by Nelson George (Da Capo

Press).

With over 100 photos and flyers—brought

together for the first time at the Deitch exhibit—"Yes Yes Y’all:

The Birth of Hip Hop" is a visual record of the birth of Hip Hop. The show

is comprised of a number of photos that Charlie Ahearn took during his pre-Wild

Style days in the Bronx and also includes many other photos and flyers that

were generously donated from private scrapbooks and closets of the hip hop pioneers

themselves.

The show opens November 1st and runs through

December 1st. The opening will be hosted and DJ’ed by Grandmaster Caz, Captain

of The Cold Crush Brothers. Deitch Brooklyn is located at 110 North 1st Street

(between Berry Street and Wythe Avenue) in Brooklyn, New York.

There will be an advance media preview from 5:00
