History of grime to be explored in exhibition at Museum of London

There’s a new grime exhibit coming to the Museum of London later this month.

Grime Stories, on display from 17th June, explores the history of the influential UK born and bred genre over the last 20 years and specifically highlights the East London grime community. One of those key people and places are Boy Better Know’s Jammer and his Waltham Forest basement studio, where grime clash battle series Lord Of The Mics was founded. 

The exhibit is co-curated by Roony ‘RiskyRoadz’ Keefe, “one of the first cameramen of grime”. It will include a panoramic illustration by artist ​​Willkay, a series of new films and personal items that honour the people who surrounded and supported grime’s pioneers like parents, carers and local youth workers. In addition to Jammer, Skepta and Slimzee also feature in the display. 

Grime Stories is located in the Museum of London’s Eclipse Hall and entry to the exhibit is free. Find more information here, and see more photos below.
