  • Free with museum admission

How does the bravado of rapper Jay-Z emulate Flemish still-life? Can rap’s politics of power inform a reading of an Italian Baroque history painting? Explore ways in which themes propounded in the quintessentially American music genre of hip-hop are echoed in the work of artists from Old Masters to Jackson Pollock.
