The Classic

Mike D, Curator

Mike D., a.k.a. Michael Diamond

Beastie Boys member Mike D is trying his hand at curating thanks to LA MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch, who has invited the rapper to curate an exhibition called Transmission L.A.: AV Club as part of a larger cultural festival at MOCA this April.  And who is Mike D keen on showing?  Word has it that he’ll be working with Swedish artist Klara Liden and the Brooklyn-based collective Still House, with further inclusions to be announced.  One thing’s certain for the hip hopper: “I want a place where people can come and hang out” he says.  “Not some button-up white walls gallery with people to match”.
