Maximum Distance. Minimum Displacement. is a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Tahir Hemphill featuring 3D printed sculptures, screenprints, drawings, book projects, and an interactive Virtual Reality experience based on Hemphill's Hip Hop Word Count. The exhibition investigates the role systems play in the generation of form and how the data drawn from a linguistic analysis of Hiphop reveal a layer of aesthetics that are music related yet non-musical. In conjunction with the exhibition, Hemphill will lead his Rap Research Lab in collaboration with local youth.
