Alison Mosshart Fire Power Solo Art Exhibition

Living in NYC there is never enough time to do everything, plain and simple. One thing RtBE has really dropped the ball on is attending the numerous art gallery openings that literally happen blocks away from us. The last one we attended was for a friend who passed away too soon.

That is changing though as we are making a mid-year resolution to do more of just that and it has started already.
Thanks to the good people at Press Here Publicity, we were clued into the opening of Alison Mosshart (The Kills, Dead Weather) first ever solo Art Exhibition titled Fire Power which would be opening literally around the block from our apartment at the Joseph Gross Gallery. Being a huge fan of her music (already posted about her upcoming album this week), we figured it was the perfect time to take the plunge into the art world.

Mosshart is a dynamic front woman and that perspective/unique approach comes through in her artwork as well. One of the things we found interesting is the clear titles written directly into the art and as a lyricist this makes total sense, we dig it.
Forgive this newbie as to not knowing how to properly describe the works or use flowery prose to pontificate on the meaning of pieces (we will save that for the music critiques) but it is safe to say we would have liked the art if we had no idea who Alison was. Vice also did an interview with Mosshart to have her give voice to the pieces and the process.
We felt weird taking pictures of artwork, still a bit unclear on the etiquette of these things, but we took one shot of the magic carpet above and there are a few other sites you can check out for more of her work from this exhibition.

Guest of a Guest in particular did an amazing job of capturing the event here and I am not just saying that because of the damn good looking couple here, hell even my glasses got their own shot with Alison's art:
Post event we have to say that we are now fans of both Mosshart's music and her artwork but in the end it really all does feel like one in the same. The exhibit runs until Saturday so if you are in the neighborhood definitely stop by and check it out.

  2. This is brilliant post! I hope you had fun time in this event. Very soon I will also attend an art gallery fest with my family at the gallery space for rent NYC venue. My kiddos are very much excited for this weekend show.

  3. The challenge for both residential homes and commercial buildings is getting carpets cleaned efficiently and without spending thousands of dollars on cleaning equipment. After all who wants to waste countless hours cleaning their carpets each week?Omega Fuses
