Hit the jump for more info about City of God’s Son and the exhibit.

City of Gods Son is a revolutionary new audio driven cinematic experience by artist Kenzo Digital. A story completely created out of samples and re-appropriated audio and visual media, City of Gods Son stars rappers Nas, Jay Z, Ghostface, Notorious BIG, Raekwon, and actors Samuel Jackson, Lawrence Fishburne, Delroy Lindo, and Al Pacino. Narrated by legendary soul singer Joe Bataan. The project has received critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, Kanye West, Complex Magazine, Fader Magazine, Nahright.com and many others. As one of the most viral and groundbreaking forms of new media art, City of Gods Son fuses musical and cinema mythologies into a one of a kind sound film, redefining how stories can be told and the very definition of the remix.

Each night will feature back-to-back screenings/listening sessions starting at 8:00pm, followed by a Q&A with director Kenzo Digital. There will be a rooftop party & reception throughout the night.

    ^ hear this often, knows what it mean, but how does having ones nose wide open translate into being crazy about a chick.
