ADE: Opening Dana Lixenberg Tupac Biggie

On the occasion of ADE, join us on 19 October from 18:00 hrs for the festive opening of Dana Lixenberg – Tupac Biggie. We'll be celebrating with a hip-hop block party with music by DJ Cutnice, Don Dev and a photo studio with clothing by Patta.

About the exhibition

In a special collaboration, Foam and MAQAM are proud to present Dana Lixenberg’s famed portraits of Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG. The exhibition dives into the ongoing evolution of these iconic images – which have transcended various mediums, from heartfelt graffiti tributes to playful nods in animations like the Simpsons – and displays images from the eponymous book Tupac Biggie which include the contactsheets from Lixenberg’s shoots with the two iconic rappers. The space has been specially transformed by graphic artist Linda van Deursen.

The exhibition will be on display at MAQAM, a creative space in Amsterdam-West.
