The 2010 B-Girl Be festival kicked off last night at Intermedia Arts with the multimedia visual arts exhibition SIDESHOW opening, featuring seven Twin Cities based artists working in varied aesthetics of hip-hop. The opening featured a DJ, a makeup artist, $30 haircuts and stylings by Moxie Salon in the “Hair-Raising Fundraiser” with all proceeds going to the festival. Curator Michele Spaise wants you to leave with with the idea that women in hip-hop are no longer the SIDESHOW, but the main event. The show runs now through September 18th.
