Fahamu Pecou is a visual artist and scholar whose works combine observations on hip-hop, fine art, and popular culture. As Pecou states: “My work seeks to provide a crucial intervention in contemporary representations of Black masculinity. I began my career experimenting with the branding strategies employed in hip-hop music and entertainment. These experiments ultimately led me to question not only the stereotypes engendered by the commodification of hip-hop culture but, more, to consider how the influence of historic and social configurations of race, class, and gender impact and inform these representations.”
Fahamu Pecou will exhibit at the Halsey Institute in Fall 2016.
