This Mixtape Assembly features Zoe Buckman, an artist who has developed a reputation for the bold and innovative ways in which she confronts the themes of feminism, mortality and equality. Working in sculpture, installation and photography, Zoe’s influences are often lyrical, with past exhibitions paying reference to John Keats and the Notorious B.I.G respectively. In her Mixtape Assembly, Zoe reflects on how important music is to her work, and, as both a fan of hip hop and a feminist, talks about how she responds to some of the misogynistic content found within certain rap lyrics. As a London girl relocated to New York, Zoe explains some of the cultural differences between the cities, particularly in terms of race and identity, in the process paying homage to one of London’s finest, Amy Winehouse. Having attended the same sixth form as Zoe, we couldn’t help but reminisce about growing up as underage garage ravers, and it turns out we were both a little bit in love with Damon Albarn back in the day...
