Uncovered II

Socially-Conscious Artists


Culver Center of the Arts

Thursday, May 26, 2011 - Friday, June 3, 2011



Uncovered II: Socially-Conscious Artists: Through the use of the Tableau Vivant, dance and music, life-size versions of some of hip hop's most politically charged and message-conscious album covers will be brought to life. From the politically charged Public Enemy challenging the structure of not only American society but of the world, to Lauren Hill's compelling presence bringing a different form of female representation to hip hop music, to OutKast's outlandish and innovative style, the focus of the second version of Uncovered is albums and artists who left a powerful mark on hip hop as well as American culture through their provocative, fearless and visionary music.

The album covers that will be re-created are: Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back, Ice Cube's Death Certificate, The Fugees The Score, Boogie Down Production's "By All Means Necessary, Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Common's Universal Mind Control, OutKast's ATLiens, TLC's Ooooooohhh? On The TLC Tip, and Gang Starr's No More Mr. Nice Guy.

Uncovered II: Socially-Conscious Artists is the culmination of a Culver Arts Research Laboratory Residency by the director Rickerby Hinds, Associate Professor of Theatre at UCR. This Hip Hop Theater Performance is also the follow-up to Uncovered: A Pageant of Hip Hop Masters that Hinds directed at UCR Sweeney Art Gallery in 2009 and features performers from UC Riverside as well as the surrounding communities Riverside, San Bernardino, Perris, Moreno Valley and Los Angeles.

The Culver Center of the Arts presents Rickerby Hinds' Califest '11, featuring Uncovered II: Socially-Conscious Artists. Califest is an annual celebration of Hip-Hop culture through theatre, dance, music, poetry, spoken word and art.
