New York, NY – Starting September 20, A Tribe Called Quest frontman Q-Tip’s personally curated art collection will be on display at Bonhams New York.
Q-Tip: The Collection will consist of works from the likes of Richard Prince, Nina Chanel Abney, Jeff Elrod and street art icon and fellow Hip Hop legend Fab 5 Freddy.
Nina Chanel Abney (American, b. 1982), Untitled (FUCKT*E*OP), 2014, acrylic on canvas.
Prince, most notably, created the cover for ATCQ’s final album, We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, in 2016.
“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to showcase and recognize some of the most talented artists that have inspired me personally and professionally,” Q-Tip said via press release. “This would not have been possible were it not for Bonhams’ generosity and commitment in sharing my collection to the public. My hope is that this exhibition will encourage visitors to learn something new, be inspired, and discover the brilliance of some of these incredible emerging artists.”
The exhibition will run until October 4, 2019, and is free to the public.
