Grime Stories: from the corner to the mainstream Exhibition at Museum Of London
17 June - 4 December 2022
For this week's #ArtThursday feature we headed to see The Grime Stories exhibition as part of the Fusion Future project with Museum Of London. We combined the Challenge Day session with the Big Creative Academy students and took in the exhibition before the museum opened on a crispy autumn morning.
Grime Stories is a free display co-curated by Roony 'RiskyRoadz' Keefe honouring the music, people and places central to the grime scene and its roots in East London.
On the other side of the exhibition, there was a reconstruction of the door and stairs to Jammer's famous basement. This was the genesis of 'Lord of The Mics'. It felt like you were actually underground as the walls and floor of the museum had been covered in signatures, just like the real basement of everyone who had passed through to record!
