A smart and provocative piece of cultural anthropology, photographer Lyle Owerko’s The Boombox Project is a celebration of that quintessential big city accessory perched on shoulders or ornamenting front stoops, the icon of the punk, new wave, and hip-hop movements from the 1970s to the 1980s. Owerkoʼs lecture focuses on his captivatingly detailed photographs of the stylistic range of these “ghetto blasters” that celebrate this distinctive American cultural touchstone. His celebrated Abrams Image book of the same name, The Boombox Project: The Machines, the Music and the Urban Underground, features a forward from filmmaker Spike Lee, who immortalized the boombox in 1989’s Do the Right Thing, and is available in MOCA Jacksonville’s shop. See his work in Synthesize: Art + Music.
