Now Reading: Mick Rock ‘Exposed’ Exhibition Opening in NY
Written 4 years ago by
British music photographer Mick Rock’s exhibition EXPOSED is now open until late October at the Sumo Gallery in Tribecca, NY. The show, in conjunction with
the soft cover release of his acclaimed book of the same title, showcases Mick’s iconic images of Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Queen, Blondie, Bob Marley and other rock legends that gave him the title of “The Man Who Shot the Seventies.”
I had the chance to meet Mick and checked the exhibition and if you guys are around, it’s definitely worth going checking it out. The prices are also very reasonable, starting at $1.500 for signed edition of 50.
The exhibition will include never before seen images of the icons and recent work of today’s musical glitterati including Pharrell, Karen O, Daft Punk, Janelle Monae and Lady Gaga.
EXPOSED also features a selection of the PhotoArt that he has produced over the past 20 years but rarely exhibited, with interpretations inspired by Mick’s iconic photos of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lady Gaga, Bob Marley, Freddie Mercury, Lou Reed and Paul McCartney.
From the Ramones to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the exhibition will be a visual celebration of the energy and unique style of the music that created the most exciting era in rock history. Quintessential images that created many of the seminal record covers of the seventies will mix with intimate and timeless photographs of the person- al and human side of legendary stars.
Now through October 19th | Tues-Sun | 11am-7pm – 37 WALKER ST.
