I was driving down Beverly a few days ago & saw Michael Kohn Gallery in such a shambles, I thought it was shuttered. Turns out the gallery was preparing for a show opening tonight featuring the artwork of David Lynch & music of Danger Mouse.
According to the gallery:
Fifty of Lynch's photographs are mounted on aluminum panels that seem to float on the gallery walls, reinforcing the moody rhythms of the music from Danger Mouse's and Sparklehorse's album Dark Night of the Soul that will play throughout the gallery. The installation encourages a fully enveloping experience that surpasses the individual visual or auditory elements.
Dark Night of the Soul
Opening - 5pm May 30th
Michael Kohn Gallery
8071 Beverly Blvd
Los Angeles, CA
Show runs May 30–July 11, 2009
If you miss the show, there's a limited edition book featuring the photographs and a blank, recordable CD-R. All copies will be clearly labeled, "Fo Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will." Why?
Due to an ongoing dispute with EMI, Danger Mouse is unable to release the recorded music for Dark Night of the Soul without fear of being sued by EMI.
