Man Parrish at Museum of Modern Art NYC (MoMA) November 2017 to April 2018

Two of his 1978 film scores and his 1983 music Video “Man Parrish Hip Hop Be Bop” were recently added to the prestigious permanent collection of The Museum Of Modern Art [MoMA] in New York City. He was also included as part of their “Club 57” exhibit which ran from November 2017 to April 2018 in the main museum on 53rd street, NYC. Additionally, he did an ambient sound installation for Moma. “Is Sound Art?”, asking the question, does art have to be a visual medium, to be shown in a museum? His plan is to bring that installation to various cities worldwide. He was also on a 2019 exhibit in Paris “Musee De City Of Paris”, and A 2020 London Museum Electronic Music Exhibit along with Jean Michele Jarre and Kraftwerk claiming them as “The Forefathers of Electronic Music’.
