Good day – an exhibition.

 
January 20th 2017 is the day that President-elect Trump takes office. Unbeknownst to many, January 20th also happens to be the day Ice Cube rapped about in his seminal song It Was A Good Day.
 
Rather than mourn the current news, a group of artists are choosing to celebrate Ice Cube and his positive song with an exhibition dedicated to It Was A Good Day to be held at Stour Space, Hackney Wick.
 
It Was A Good Day by Ice Cube was released in 1992, and using the song’s lyrics and historic events—like the debut date of Yo! MTV Raps and results of games between the Lakers and Sonics—Donovan Strain from Murk Avenue concluded that Ice Cube’s “good day” was Jan. 20, 1992.
