A free display celebrating twenty years of the sound
A new grime exhibit is opening at the Museum of London this Friday, 17th June 2022.
Grimes Stories; co-curated by one of the first cameramen of grime, Roony ‘RiskyRoadz’ Keefe tells the history of the genre, which emerged in the early 2000s, and focuses on people and places in east London who shaped the scene from then until now.
Boy Better Know’s Jammer and his basement studio, where the legendary clash fight Lord Of The Mics was founded, are among those key individuals and places that feature.
The exhibition will feature a panoramic illustration by artist Willkay, a series of films, and personal artefacts, plus will pay tribute to the parents, carers and youth workers who supported the MC.
Entry to the display is free but I would highly recommend pre-booking a space, click here for more information.
