“Last time I checked I was the man on these streets!” Well, now I’m the man in the MOCA, witnessing the #ILLEST thing on Earth; Me! Art!
Kahlil Joseph’s Hypnotic Art installation Film is now showing at the MOCA. Kahlil keeps a lowkey profile, expressing that all the talking should be done by the work. You may have seen his work before, if you were praising Yeezus during the Yeezus tour, in which his work was projected behind tour opening act, Kendrick Lamar.
The motion picture features a 15 minute mix of violence and triumphs within the streets of Los Angeles. Compton to be exact. It is hard to find words to describe the 15 minutes of mixed emotions, but it’s sure to inspire. My eyes were pacing back and forth between the two screens, shaped in a 165 degree obtuse angle. (I didn’t measure.)
Here is my very own snapshot collection:

Until next time, y’all!
