The highly-anticipated exhibition titled “Michael Jackson: On the Wall” is set to be unveiled at the Grand Palais on November 23, 2018. The exhibition will be on view through February 14, 2019.
Michael Jackson Jackson is one of the most influential cultural figures to come out of the 20th century and his legacy continues into the 21st century. His significance is widely acknowledged when it comes to music, music videos, dance, choreography, and fashion, but his impact on contemporary art is an untold story. This landmark exhibition explores how Michael Jackson has inspired some of the leading names in contemporary art.
“Michael Jackson’s songs, choreographies and video clips are testament to the extraordinary artistic path he was destined for, and were a source of inspiration for many artists: Andy Warhol, Lorraine O’Grady, Isaac Julien,” the museum says.
After Andy Warhol used his image in 1982, Michael Jackson has become the most represented cultural figure in visual art. His legacy goes beyond albums and awards; his philanthropic achievements are profound, and he broke cultural barriers.
“Michael Jackson: On the Wall,” will bring together the works of over 40 artists, drawn from public and private collections around the world. The multimedia exhibition, showing works by several generations of artists, will include works by Rita Ackermann, Dara Birnbaum, Candice Breitz, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Mark Flood, Isa Genzken, Maggi Hambling, David Hammons, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Jonathan Horowitz.
The exhibition opens on November 23, 2018, through February 14, 2019 at Rmn-Grand Palais, 3 Avenue du General Eisenhower, 75008 Paris, France.
