IDOLS: A Web Exclusive World Tour
Situating iconic imagery in cross-contextual dialogue with billboards, megaliths and masterpieces.
From it’s gallery walls to the Great Wall of China, Morrison Hotel Gallery invites you to hit the road with Idols, a web-exclusive world tour-seven continents and more than a 50+ years iconic imagery through irreverent virtual renderings.
Playing on portrait tradition, conventional sites of exhibition, and the pangs of wanderlust presently felt worldwide, Idols reframes the works of internationally-acclaimed photographers such as Terry O’Neill, Peter Hujar, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen and Timothy White via creative new concepts. Like uncanny postcards of iconic worlds colliding, Idols ushers in a new age of virtual expression as this fine art activation makes its way to MorrisonHotelGallery.com on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.
Follow @IdolsWorldTour on Instagram as we explore what it means to take these legendary works of modern portraiture beyond their Morrison Hotel Gallery home and into the “real” world.
