Spanning art, music and performance, Culture Move is a dynamic exhibition tracing the diverse cultural heritage of Brent. The show explores the history of sampled music in the borough since the advent of Hip-Hop in the 1980s.

The exhibition documents the recording artists, studios, pirate radio stations and urban spac es associated with the history of hip-hop and sampled music in Brent. Historical images and objects from the Brent Museum and Archives form new compositions informed by music production techniques.

Kingsbury based artist Jaykoe has engaged with the local community, inviting participants to bring personal objects and images, to be sampled in artwork for the exhibition.
