REMEMBERING KURT

Thursday, May 6th, 2010
Seattle forever holds the stamp of "grunge" and the legacy of Kurt Cobain. Kurt Cobain was an icon, whether he wanted to be or not, and the story of Nirvana is one that we all know, but perhaps don't fully understand. Curator of The Seattle Art Museum, Michael Darling, is going to help change that. The Kurt Cobain exhibit, which runs May 13 - September 16, 2010, will include works from Rodney Graham, Douglas Gordon, Jennifer West and Elizabeth Peyton, among other contemporary artists, but this tribute will not be an easy quest. "Kurt Cobain symbolized the ideals, aspirations and disappointments of the ’90s generation, and a diverse array of artists have incorporated his image into their work to comment on those issues."
