Η Interscope Records γιορτάζει 30 χρόνια από την ίδρυση της!

Το Μουσείο Τέχνης του Λος Άντζελες (LACMA) παρουσιάζει την έκθεση

“Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined”.

Με πρωτότυπα έργα από σημαντικούς εικαστικούς καλλιτέχνες, εμπνευσμένα από τα άλμπουμ και τα τραγούδια ορισμένων iconic καλλιτεχνών της Interscope, που θα παρουσιαστούν στις 30 Ιανουαρίου.

Η Interscope Records ξεκινά σήμερα τον εορτασμό της 30ης επετείου της. Στο πλαίσιο αυτό, το Μουσείο Τέχνης του Λος Άντζελες (LACMA) θα παρουσιάσει πάνω από 50 έργα τέχνης σε μιά έκθεση με τίτλο “Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined”. Αυτή η έκθεση θα αποτελείται από έργα μιάς ομάδας εικαστικών καλλιτεχνών που έχουν εμπνευστεί από τραγουδιστές που ανήκουν στην Interscope Records.

Πιο συγκεκριμένα, οι Cecily Brown, Julie Curtiss, Shepard Fairey, Lauren Halsey, Damien Hirst, Rashid Johnson, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Kehinde Wiley και πολλοί άλλοι αξιόλογοι εικαστικοί καλλιτέχνες, έχουν δημιουργήσει πρωτότυπα έργα εμπνευσμένα από άλμπουμ και τραγούδια των 2Pac. , Billie Eilish, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Juice WRLD, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, MGK, Nine Inch Nails, No Doubt, Olivia Rodrigo, Selena Gomez, Snoop Dogg, U2 κ.ά!

Το φιλόδοξο αυτό project οργανώθηκε από τον συνιδρυτή της Interscope Records, Jimmy Lovine,  τον τωρινό πρόεδρο John Janick, το μουσικό στέλεχος Josh Abraham και τον αντιπρόεδρο της Interscope Steve Berman, οι οποίοι συνεργάστηκαν στενά με όλους τους μουσικούς και εικαστικούς καλλιτέχνες. Η ομάδα συνεργάστηκε επίσης με τον επιμελητή Διακοσμητικών Τεχνών και Σχεδίου της LACMA, Staci Steinberger, για τη συλλογική οργάνωση της έκθεσης. Το μέγεθος της επιτυχίας της Interscope, αναγνωρίζει τη βαθιά επίδραση που έχουν οι καλλιτέχνες της παγκοσμίως, τις τελευταίες τρεις δεκαετίες.

I’m so proud that Interscope’s culture of boundless creativity provides its artists with the widest palette possible with which to express themselves.  As a result, Interscope and its artists have not only consistently delivered some of the world’s most influential music, but also created groundbreaking visual media.  It is fitting that the great work of Interscope’s artists be reinterpreted by leading visual artists in a way that celebrates their unique visions as well as three decades of this iconic label.” – Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group

“From its earliest days, Interscope’s roster has included one-of-a-kind artists who clearly moved culture, and that’s something that we work to honor every single day in our current work at the label.  In conversation with one of our label partners Justin Lubliner, he sparked this idea. As Jimmy, Berm, Josh Abraham and I reached out to the visual artist community, we realized that having them create a lasting visual legacy that honors our artists’ music would be a hugely powerful tribute. The fact that so many of the world’s most acclaimed fine artists came together so eagerly to contribute to this project, and the fact that our own recording artists were as equally enthusiastic, is a deeply meaningful tribute to Interscope and one that we are immensely grateful for. Having these artworks debut at LACMA, one of the world’s most prestigious museums, is hugely gratifying for all of us who have been connected with Interscope over these past three decades. Sir Lucian Grainge’s enduring support of Interscope’s unique voice and vision over the years has helped make it possible for Interscope to foster an ambitious artistic endeavor of this magnitude.” – John Janick, Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M
