A new exhibition called Grime Stories is opening at the Museum of London this summer.
Grime Stories will focus on the genre’s emergence in East London in the early 2000s and the community and places that shaped its sounds. The exhibit is co-curated by Roony ‘Risky’ Geefe – one of the first cameramen of the grime – and spans almost 20 years.
The Leytonstone recording studio basement of legendary Grime pioneer Jammer is among the spots highlighted in the exhibition, which features newly commissioned films alongside archival material and footage, personal artefacts, and a panoramic illustration by Wilky.
Entry to Grime Stories at the Museum of London is free and can be booked online, with the show opening on 17 June 2022.
