It"s Our Thing: More History on Australian Hip-Hop (Part II) will be presented by Blacktown Arts from 22 June 2017 to 12 August 2017.

Fourteen artists will present works both inside and in the open at Blacktown Arts Centre, exploring the explosion of hip-hop culture in Blacktown during the 1990s and its impact on current artistic practices.

Curated by Kon Gouriotis and Paul Howard, It"s Our Thing (Part II) features some of the original graffiti artists and visual artists active during that time.

The exhibition includes performances, paintings, graffiti (both at the Centre and throughout the Blacktown CBD), video displays of female hip-hop performers from the 90s to now, and a rare original piece by visual artist Unique, last displayed in 1992.

The program includes an opening event with live graffiti and a DJ set on Thursday, 22 June 2017, and a hip-hop concert on Saturday, 12 August 2017, presented in partnership with FBi Radio.

Throughout the exhibition, Blacktown Arts will host a series of free panel discussions with the artists, school holiday workshops and special events for young people and seniors.
