About the Author
Maxwell Wolf is a curator, art dealer, and author based in New York. Wolf founded New Canons in 2021, a nomadic curatorial office and art advisory. As the founder and chief curator of Red Bull Arts, an experimental arts space in New York City, he staged major exhibitions of artists such as Gretchen Bender, Mel Chin, Bjarne Melgaard, and Akeem Smith, among many others. Jeff Mao is an author, music journalist and historian, and curator. A longtime member of the creative collective ego trip, with which he has co-written two books, he worked extensively with Red Bull Music Academy as an interviewer and radio and film producer, and was an associate curator for Red Bull Arts' 2018 exhibition Rammellzee Racing for Thunder. Jeffrey Deitch has been involved with modern and contempo­rary art for fifty years as an artist, writer, curator, dealer, and advisor. He has had a long association with Rammellzee: He was with the artist and Jean-Michel Basquiat in Los Angeles in 1983 when Basquiat painted his iconic work Hollywood Africans which features Toxic and Rammellzee. In 2011, Deitch recreated the legendary Battlestation in collaboration with the artist's wife Carmela in the exhibition Art in the Streets at MoCA, Los Angeles. In 2022, Deitch's Los Angeles gallery organized, in partnership with the Estate of Rammellzee, Gothic Futurism, a survey featuring two-hundred works. Carmela Zagari was the artist's wife and muse.
