Join us on Saturday, September 24 at 7PM at MCA Denver at the Holiday for an incredible lineup of music, spoken word, and additional performances at The Dirty South Showcase. The showcase will be hosted by award winning author, writer, and actor Dominique Christina. Come celebrate creative performances inspired by the themes addressed in the exhibition The Dirty South: Contemporary Art, Material Culture, and the Sonic Impulse.

Occupying all three floors of galleries at MCA Denver, The Dirty South: Contemporary Art, Material Culture, and the Sonic Impulse will make visible the roots of Southern hip hop culture and reveal how the aesthetic traditions of the African American South have shaped visual art and musical expression over the last 100 years. Beginning in the 1920s with spirituals, jazz and blues, the exhibition interweaves parallels in the visual art production of the Southern United States. This exhibition features an intergenerational group of artists working in a variety of genres from sculpture, painting and drawing to photography and film as well as sound pieces and large-scale installation works.
