Professor Joe Lewis in Artists' Talk at Sacramento State

Pump Up the Volume is Jane Dickson and Joe Lewis’ celebration of hip hop’s ascension into a global movement from its earliest moments that they witnessed in the South Bronx. The exhibition consists of approximately 60+ discrete pieces, including portraits of important genre artists, dating from 1979 - 2015. There is also an audio component overlay of 278 songs (18 hours of music) tracing the history of hip-hop music from the Bronx.
