HVW8 Gallery Los Angeles and adidas Originals proudly present UNCATEGORIZED, an exhibition of photography by Chi Modu. Alongside images of hip-hop royalty including Tupac, Biggie, Nas and ODB, UNCATEGORIZED also features previously unseen gems from Chi’s photographic archive. The show celebrates hip-hop’s creative energy and raw, unrivaled ambition in its prime, showcasing Chi’s documentation of the legends behind the sound. UNCATEGORIZED is an ode to a movement, honouring the impact that the early hip-hop icons inimitably maintain today.
UNCATEGORIZED stems from a wider exhibition series, the title of which marks Chi’s open-minded approach to his work. “I wanted to create something that is the opposite of putting labels on everything and make a statement against stereotyping,” he explains. “My work does not fit into any one stereotype and neither do I.”
