“Hip-Hop 360” at the Philharmonie de Paris (Paris Philharmonic)

From 17 December 2021 to 24 July 2022, the Philharmonie de Paris is staging an exhibition devoted to hip-hop, rap, dance, graffiti, DJ, beat making, beatbox and fashion. “Hip-Hop 360” retraces the genre’s 40-year history through interactive presentations. 

You have until 24 July 2022 to visit the new exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris. Entitled “Hip-Hop 360”, it focuses on several periods and founding events of the genre: the birth of the hip-hop movement in the Bronx in the 1970s, its arrival in France in the following decade, its history on French radio, Parisian graffiti, rap and its musical grammar, fashion pioneer Ticaret, the development of beat making and, finally, the 360 space: an immersion at the very heart of all hip-hop disciplines.
