In a special collaboration, Foam and MAQAM are proud to present Dana Lixenberg’s famed portraits of Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG. The exhibition dives into these iconic images, with the space transformed by graphic artist Linda van Deursen. Come and see the series at MAQAM, a creative space in Amsterdam-West.
The exhibition dives into the ongoing evolution of the iconic images of Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG – which have transcended various mediums, from heartfelt graffiti tributes to playful nods in animations like the Simpsons – and displays images from the eponymous book Tupac Biggie which include the contactsheets from Lixenberg’s shoots with the two iconic rappers.
