    Testing, Testing!

    What effect does the city have on your brain and body? In a series of weekly tours developed with Lab Team member Charles Montgomery, Dr. Colin Ellard, author of You Are Here: Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon, but Get Lost in the Mall, has begun to gather evidence about the psychological effects of public spaces near the Lab. This week, join Dr. Ellard on this tour and measure the effects of the city on your own brain and body.

    Screening: Wild Style

    For those craving the true roots of rap, Wild Style captures the hard-core South Bronx scene at its birth and stars the pantheon of hip-hop’s pioneers, including DJ Grandmaster Flash and the Rock Steady Crew. The film stars the legendary subway artist Lee Quinones and the queen of the graffiti scene, Sandra “Pink” Fabara. It follows the outlaw artists through train yards to rap/breakdance clubs and climaxes at a massive outdoor jam, the most famous hip-hop party in history.
