Korean hip-hop sensation Dynamicduo and dance crew PROWDMON (“Street Woman Fighter“) will take center stage at the Hammer Museum’s opening celebration for “Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s.” Presented by CJ ENM, the event will take place at the Hammer Museum’s courtyard on Saturday, February 10 at 8PM.
The opening celebration marks the opening of a full slate of exhibitions this season at the Hammer Museum. “Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s” is the first exhibition in North America to explore groundbreaking shifts made by a generation of artists in the decades following the Korean War (1950–53).
Admission to the opening celebration is free and first come, first served. Museum members will receive priority entry. A cash bar will be present at the event and members at the Immerse level and above ($250+) will receive a complimentary first drink, while Impact level members and above ($500+) are invited to attend the Director’s Reception before the public celebration.
In addition to the performances, attendees can explore other exhibitions on display, including stanley brouwn, Groove: Artists and Intaglio Prints, 1500 to Now, and two new Hammer Projects by artists Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi and Vamba Bility. The galleries will remain open until 10:30 PM, offering a unique opportunity to engage with a diverse range of contemporary art.
Dynamicduo, consisting of the rappers Gaeko and Choiza, is set to bring their explosive energy and chart-topping hits to the City of Angels. From their 2014 release “AEAO” to last year’s smash hit “Smoke,” Dynamicduo has been a prominent figure in the Korean hip-hop scene.
Dance crew PROWDMON, led by Monika, has been widely recognized for their exceptional performances on CJ ENM’s dance competition series “Street Woman Fighter.” Their performance at the Hammer will feature four members of the crew—Monika, Lip J, Minz, and Kayday — and will showcase their incredible skill, creativity, precision, and passion for their art.
