EXHIBITION ‘KURT’ AT SEATTLE ART MUSEUM

Scott Fife, Kurt Cobain 2006

Currently running through September 6, 2010, is the exhibition Kurt, at the Seattle Art Museum. About the exhibition: 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.

International in scope, the works on view in Kurt range from straightforward portraiture to pieces that show a more subtle assimilation of Cobain’s ethos and idealism in a broad range of media. With works from the early 1990s to the present, by artists such as Rodney Graham, Douglas Gordon and Elizabeth Peyton, among others, this exhibition will cause viewers to question why and how Kurt’s visage and his gestures came to mean so much to a generation.
