    Michael Jackson's impact on art explored in London show

    Late singer will be subject of exhibition at National Portrait Gallery next year looking at ‘untold story’ of his influence on art.

    Michael Jackson is to be the subject of an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery looking at the late singer’s influence on art.

    Almost 10 years after his death, the London gallery said the way he inspired contemporary artists was “an untold story”.

    Michael Jackson: On the Wall will open next summer to coincide with what would have been his 60th birthday. The show, featuring loaned items from around the world, will be curated by the gallery’s director, Nicholas Cullinan.

    While Jackson’s legacy in music, video, dance and fashion has been celebrated, his influence on art has not, the gallery said. There will be more 40 artists featured, including Andy Warhol, the first to depict Jackson in 1982, Maggi Hambling, Gary Hume, David LaChapelle and Grayson Perry.

    New works will also be made for the show.

    Cullinan said: “Michael Jackson: On the Wall takes an entirely new and quite radical approach by exploring the cultural impact of a unique figure through contemporary art.

    “All the artists included, despite coming from different generations and parts of the world, and employing a range of media, are fascinated by what Jackson represented and what he invented.

    “It is rare that there is something new to say about someone so famous, but here that is the case. The exhibition breaks new ground for the National Portrait Gallery in its subject matter and the breadth and profile of the artists who have been invited to participate.

    “It will open up new avenues for thinking about art and identity, encourage new dialogues between artists, and invite audiences interested in popular culture and music to engage with contemporary art. Like its subject, we hope this exhibition will be inclusive in appeal, uncompromising in artistic integrity and in the process, break down barriers.”

    Michael Jackson: On the Wall is being produced with the cooperation of the Michael Jackson estate.

    Jackson died in 2009 aged 50 after an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol, as he prepared to make a live comeback with a string of shows at the O2 Arena in London.

    Sounds like this would also be an excellent documentary.

    The Evening Standard must have corrected it because it just says this-it doesn't give the run date, though.

    Michael Jackson: On The Wall will open on August 28, a day before what would have been the singer’s 60th birthday. It is curated by the gallery’s director, Nicholas Cullinan, and includes essays from writers Zadie Smith and Margo Jefferson.


    Mr Cullinan said the exhibition takes an “entirely new and quite radical approach” by exploring the cultural impact of a unique figure through contemporary art.

    This landmark exhibition explores the influence of Michael Jackson on some of the leading names in contemporary art, spanning several generations of artists across all media. Curated by Dr Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition will open in the summer of 2018 to coincide with what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday (on August 29, 2018).

    Michael Jackson is one of the most influential cultural figures to come out of the 20th century and his legacy continues into the 21st century. His significance is widely acknowledged when it comes to music, music videos, dance, choreography and fashion, but his considerable influence on contemporary art is an untold story. Since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982, Jackson has become the most depicted cultural figure in visual art by an extraordinary array of leading contemporary artists. For the first time, Michael Jackson: On the Wall will bring together the works of over forty of these artists, drawn from public and private collections around the world, including new works made especially for the exhibition.

    Michael Jackson: On the Wall is produced with the co-operation of the Michael Jackson Estate.

    Oh my days this quote from David LaChapell! WOW. Love it!


    “We persecuted him. Every person who ever bought a tabloid or watched the news, we all contributed to his death by taking in that form of gossip… Madonna has been torn down. Michael Jordan has been torn down. Michael Jackson was destroyed. Like no other person in our times. You have to remember that Michael Jackson was innocent. He was proved innocent in our courts. If you read the transcripts of the trial it is insanity, it should never have gone to court. We spent tens of millions of dollars to prosecute him when we don’t have money for schools in California,” LaChapelle tells Nowness in 2010.

    Wishing to balance the overtly negative portrayal of Jackson in the media, LaChapelle decides to portray the singer as a martyr: “I believe Michael in a sense is an American martyr. Martyrs are persecuted and Michael was persecuted. Michael was innocent and martyrs are innocent. If you go on YouTube and watch interviews with Michael, you don’t see a crack in the facade. There’s this purity and this innocence that continued. If it had been an act, he couldn’t have kept it up. If you watch his concerts from Budapest and compare it to a Madonna concert of today, you’ll see such uplifting beauty and a message that you won’t see in any other artist of our time,” he explains to WWD in 2010.

    Yes, he was spot on, painfully so. How Michael was treated by the tabloids, by our so called law enforcement, and even by people he thought were on "his side" was inhumane and despicable. No matter how many times they tried to bring him, and keep him down, he managed to rise above. I don't know how he did it without going postal.

    Such an interesting backstory!!!
    It is too bad that they never collaborated-I also think it's interesting that he ran away from home at 15 and became a busboy at Studio 54. That wold have put him there when Michael was about 20/21 when he was still going there, celebrating his birthday, etc. Really interesting-guess that might be where he met Warhol, etc.

    I also remember seeing pictures of Dr. Klein's auction when he had to declare bankruptcy-and he had a large print of the LaChapell photo of Jesus holding Michael hanging in his house.
