October 19, 2023 | Time TBD

Join MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta) and Villa Albertine for a conversation with DJ DJEL, a Marseille-based beatmaker and graffiti artist from the famous FONKY FAMILY.

In residence with Villa Albertine from September 17 – November 1, DJ DJEL will work on his project MarsTlanta: a sound creation project based on a collection of musical archives and sound recordings of words and street noises—soundscapes—of the two cities. In conversation with Rachel Griner, curator of MODA’s Hip-Hop Innovators series, DJ DJEL’s talk will focus on his residency project and the connections between the hip-hop scenes of Atlanta and Marseille.

Tickets for this event cost $10. Registration required.

This talk is presented by MODA and Villa Albertine, as part of Atlanta Design Week and France-Atlanta.
