Punk vs. Rap: Two Genres Born In The ’70s Battle It Out In Upcoming Toronto Photo Exhibit
April 14, 2014

PUNK: The Clash

Punk and Hip-hop both got off the ground in the 1970s. Each genre had its subversive elements, with the musicians in the various scenes often defining themselves in opposition to the mainstream rock and pop culture. And here's another thing they had in common: both brought with them a bold new visual style. "Punk vs. Rap," a new exhibit opening May 1 at Toronto's Analogue Gallery, will explore the visual history of the two genres, lining one wall with photos of punk icons (like The Clash, Patti Smith and the Sex Pistols) and the opposite wall with hip-hop heroes (like Public Enemy, Notorious B.I.G. and, yes, Drake). For the opening night party, there'll even be a DJ battle, with one representative from each side spinning tracks. In the gallery above, 10 photos from the exhibit, which is part of Toronto's Contact Photography Festival.
