World at Large: Looking at Music 3.0 Exhibition-MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art in New York is home to a number of the world's leading exhibitions, but one that really caught our eye is Looking at Music 3.0

The exhibition looks at the influence of music upon the art world with a specific focus on movements from the 80's and 90's in New York. Think street art, performance artists and underground clubs- this is where Looking at Music 3.0 gains its inspiration from. A number of artists and musicians alike feature in the exhibition, from hip hop pioneers Beastie Boys and Run DMC to street activist artist Keith Haring, this is one exhibition for anyone who was intrigued by the creative underground world of the 80's and 90's. 

If you're going to check out the exhibition, we suggest heading on May 5th as the whole place will be turned into a live music performance featuring a DJ set by Adam Horovitz of Beastie Boys (we'd be there if we could!)

Other artists and musicians will also be there to sign posters and what not, including Kathleen Hanna of Le Tigre and creative director of Def Jam Recordings, Cey Adams (oh and there will be a bar, just to add to the fun.)

Looking at Music 3.0 closes on May 30th.
