Archiving of Afrika Bambaataa’s record collection to be opened to the public



One of hip hop’s most important record collections is to be archived in public at New York gallery.

It’s not often you get the opportunity to get up close and personal with a record collection like this. Located at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, Johan Kugelberg/Boo-Hooray Gallery will be organizing, cataloguing, and documenting the collection publicly to give visitors the opportunity to “stop by, hear some great music and see how the cultural artifacts of this important strand of American history are preserved” before it finds a permanent home in Cornell University’s Hip Hop Collection later this year.

The gallery will be open on weekdays between between 12 – 5 PM between July 11 – August 10, 2013. Click here to find out more.
