With the Warhol exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal's art galleries have really dialed in on the strong relationship between art and rock music. This dynamic exhibit will be of interest to art and music fans with a whole bunch of people coming to the museum who might never have without the pull of the subject being music.
Organized by Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art the exhibit has an in-depth look at the relationship between rock music and avant garde art over the last 40-odd years. It includes works by photographer Richard Prince, Andy Warhol, Jim Lambie, Adam Pendleton, Richard Kern, and Canadian artist Rodney Graham. Within the over 100 pieces in the exhibit, all different medium are represented like video, paintings, drawings, photography, and album covers. We look at the 6 hotbeds of the music/art relationship including New York, North American West Cost, the American Midwest, Continental Europe, the U.K., and the rest of the World.
