From July 19 until 30 the I Love Hiphop x The Hague Street Art expo can be seen in the Atrium of the City Hall of The Hague. This exhibition is part of the I Love Hiphop Festival.
The Hague has an illustrious graffiti history. This exhibition takes a deep dive into the graffiti archives of the city. Never seen images from a private collection show graffiti pieces from the hay days of the infamous The Hague graffiti scene. Aside from the throwback to archives of the the 80’s and 90’s, there will be more recent photos tob e seen, mainly taken at the LGL (legal graffiti locations), made by newer generations of graffiti writers.
The exhibition shows an overview of graffiti “then” and “now”, showcasing the development in the scene from illegal graffiti in illegal spots to a growth of skills in different places. The Hague Street Art (formerly known as Haags Graffiti Platform) played a major part in the development.
Not only graffiti will be shown. A part of the exhibition will show exclusive (moving) images of breaking (better known as breakdance by the general public). The Hague is a well renowned city in this hiphop discipline as well and bred some national and international champs. Also the city is known for its many breakdance battles. This exhibition will show photos and videos of breaking and of course the battles at I Love Hiphop festival are a part of it.
