Over the years, Rza has come to be viewed as an expert on martial arts film. In that tradition, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has invited Rza to express his thoughts about martial arts film classic, “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” and how the film influenced him and the Wu. This is also a topic I discussed in my book on Wu-Tang, “Enter The Wu-Tang: How Nine Men Changed Hip-Hop Forever” (i.e. the vital importance of “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin,” which even served as the origin of the group’s name).
The event is $7 for LACMA members, students with valid ID and seniors (62+); $10 for the general public. Tickets went on sale on Thursday, August 28. Two ticket limit. The event will take place September 23 at the Hammer Building.
