A rare, insider’s look at the growth of My Morning Jacket – from
fledgling musicians to major musical icons – will debut May 22 at The Morrison
Hotel Gallery, located in the building that formerly housed CBGB, the legendary
landmark club for punk musicians including Blondie.
You can take in a visual sneak preview via a special video trailer,
“Still Moving,” that BLURT is currently hosting in our video kiosk. Just scroll
down to that section, or go straight in HERE.
The six-week, 21-image exhibition of work by photographer and filmmaker
Sam Erickson shows the growth of the band from 2002 to 2008. Photographs show
everything from live concert images to the band’s recording of its last three
studio albums including It Still Moves, Z and Evil Urges. Erickson’s long-term
project allowed him to record private images of the band, many of which have
never been viewed by the public.
“Sam is one of the new emerging talents in
the music visual media arena. I
was impressed with his technical and artistic ability as a photographer,” said
Peter Blachley of Morrison Hotel Gallery. “Combined that with Sam’s ability to
capture the very talented and critically acclaimed band, My Morning Jacket from
early on in their career to present. That appealed to me and I anticipate will
appeal to our audience.”
Hotel Gallery is located at 313
Bowery St. in New York City. The show is free and the hours
will be as follow:
– 7:00 Sunday to Wednesday
– 9:00 Thursday to Saturday
