[New Video] Kendrick Lamar – Element

0 Posted by - December 4, 2017 - Videos

The “Element” video has been transformed into a full-scale art exhibition titled ELEMENT: Gordon Parks and Kendrick Lamar. It’s no secret that the visual for the Kendrick song was a direct homage to the iconic photographer, Gordon Parks, which deliberately recreated some of his best-known images, such as “Boy With Junebug” and “Untitled,” as well as photos form Parks’ “Harlem Gang Leader” series, which debuted in 1948. All in all, the music video is a striking tribute to this artistic titan, and the foundation felt it more than appropriate to have “Element” live alongside the rest of Parks’ work, at least for the time being. “Gordon Parks’ work is continuing to have a great impact on young people – and particularly on artists like Kendrick who, use the power of imagery to examine issues related to social justice and race in our country,” , Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr., who is the Executive Director of The Gordon Parks Foundation, said in a statement. “With ELEMENT the music video, Kendrick has helped to call attention to one of the most important artists of our time.”
