Mick Rock’s Fall New York exhibition EXPOSED (also the title of his new book which will be launched at the exhibition, with Kate Moss on the cover sporting a Ziggy Stardust t-shirt) will open at the Sumo Gallery on the 22nd September, 2014 for a four week run. The event will showcase Mick’s iconic images of Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Queen, Blondie, and other rock legends that gave him the title of “The Man Who Shot The Seventies.” The exhibition will include never before seen images of the icons and recent work of today’s musical glitterati.
EXPOSED will also feature 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 personal and human side of legendary stars. EXPOSED will confirm Mick Rock’s place as one of the most iconic photographers of our time.
Mick’s latest book EXPOSED, the inspiration for this exhibition, will be available at the end of September from Palazzo Editions.
