CRAZY ABOUT THE MUSIC
September 21 – November 4
La Fiambrera loves music! It’s with us in everyday life and it’s all over the walls of the gallery.
We can’t dissociate it from the art that surrounds us because it is, in many cases, inseparable. Almost all of our artists can’t separate their work from music either because they too are CRAZY ABOUT MUSIC.
That’s why we want to pay a huge homage to music with this show. It’s designed to be a celebration for us and also for all the music lovers, friends and customers of La Fiambrera. Our artists have all created musical tributes in their subject matter over time. In some cases, music is the total focus of their work.
CRAZY ABOUT MUSIC gathers original and edited work that were made to not just deliver an aesthetic message, it also indicates a passion for sound and the excitement of listening to the musicians portrayed in some of the pieces on display.
We have compiled a very eclectic musical selection for your viewing pleasure. The show is a visual equivalent of those mixtape cassettes that we used to compile before the arrival of streaming music. It’s all influenced and inspired by the great music that was made by the performers you’ll see interpreted on the walls. It represents a wide range of styles including Jazz (Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Nat King Cole), Soul (Sam Cooke, James Brown, Marvin Gaye), Country (Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton) Rock n’ Roll (Elvis Presley, Wanda Jackson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino), Pop and Rock (The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Bowie, Dylan, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Velvet Underground, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna) and Punk (Ramones, The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Cramps) to name but a few.
We’re aware that there many more but every single one here really counts.
