Beat Nation Storms the VAG
by Marika Swan
Beat Nation: Art, Hip Hop and Aboriginal Culture opens at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Friday February 25th featuring performances by Jackson 2Bears, A Tribe Called Red, Skeena Reece, Nicholas Galanin, and RPM’s Ostwelve.
Every so often the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) hosts FUSE Fridays with live music and performance. This Friday will not only host an epic roster of performers but will open the Beat Nation art exhibit featuring work by Sunny Assu, Shawn Hunt, Jordan Bennett, Dana Claxton, Nicholas Galanin, Kent Monkman and others. There will also be an RPM installation of Indigenous hip-hop music videos, intercut with commentary by Ostwelve.
Find out more about this event here.
The exhibit runs from February 25 – June 3, 2012.
Here are some shots from Beat Nation’s last show at the PUSH festival.
In case you missed our incredible interview with ms Skeena Reece… here is a stream of the song in question “John Carver” http://rpm.fm/music/stream-skeena-reece-john-carver/
It’s the end of the year and hard to believe that RPM is only 6 months old! What an incredible journey it has been so far.
As a thank you for making our first few months so fantastic, we’ve put together an exclusive free mixtape for you to download and enjoy over the holidays.
Download the 2011 RPM Loves You Mixtape, hosted by our Ostwelve, here: http://rpm.fm/news/a-holiday-gift-from-rpm-to-you/. We hope you enjoy it.
In return, we ask that you share this post with two friends and continue to grow this community of Indigenous music culture!
Happy holidays everyone!
RPM’s own Ostwelve will be on the CBC radio show On The Coast speaking about the official launch today. Tune in and share it up!
