From his early works until now, Atlanta artist Fahamu Pecou has always explored the intersection of hip-hop culture and fine art.
And as guest editor of the current “Art x Hip Hop” issue of Art Papers magazine, Pecou has brought together some of the nation’s up-and-coming artists, scholars and MCs to explore topics from appropriation of black style to a meditation on rapper Kendrick Lamar. On Feb. 24, Pecou expands the “Art Papers” project with “InterSessions: ArtxHip-Hop Dialogues,” a conversation between rapper T.I. (Clifford Harris, Jr.) and Michael Rooks, High Museum curator of modern and contemporary art. It’s the first of a series, moderated by Pecou, that will bring together some of Atlanta’s top hip-hop artists and notable arts figures. It is free, though tickets are limited.
The inaugural event, which was sold out, was postponed by Atlanta’s SnowJam a couple of weeks ago. It was to have happened just days
