You probably recognize some of the faces above, and by doing so you know their artistic endeavors when it comes to music, but you may not be aware that they also do other forms of art as well. Come Together is a forthcoming “collaborative art” exhibit where people known for their illustrations, photography, and paintings are working with musicians, MC’s, DJ’s, and producers to create revisions of the familiar.
Some of the people involved include Chuck D. of Public Enemy, guitarist George Lynch of Dokken/Lynch Mob/Souls Of We, Angelo Moore of Fishbone, The RZA of Wu-Tang Clan/Gravediggaz, bassist Bootsy Collins (P-Funk empire), drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver), turntablist DJ-Q-Bert, bassist Shavo Odadjian (System Of A Down), and many more. Some of them are explorations of each musician or songs that they’ve done, while others are relevant to what they may have talked about in their music before, but may be more valid today. Art of art from art, for art.
These pieces are being presented at the Andrew Weiss Gallery in Beverly Hills (179 S. Beverly Dr., 310-246-9333) from Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 5pm, and will continue until November 1st. To find out more about the Come Together exhibit, head to SceneFour.com.
The art pieces will be compiled into a book to be published in the fall by Addition Iconics.
