REPETITION - PAINTWORK#3
POP-MUSIK UND KUNST - THE FALL
Open 31st October till 21st November 2009
Opening 30th October 2009
The Fall, the group around singer Mark E. Smith, was never an art-rock band but nevertheless influenced more than a generation of artists.
Paintwork#3 is a unique collection of artists who are so divers that they normally would never exhibit together. Their only link in this exhibition is The Fall-Gruppe.
- made artwork for the album covers and live shows
- made explicit reference in their work to The Fall
- were inspired by both The Fall´s music and attitude
- use the band as a code or cultural phenomenon
The Fall as a morphic field.
Very different artists understand this music and attitude.
The uncompromising code that changed so many lifes. Repetition, Repetition, Repetition.
For more information see:
The Fall will play on the 5th November in the club „uebel und gefährlich“ in Hamburg.
