Satisfaction…Guaranteed. Martin Lawrence Galleries Announces Rolling Stones/Andy Warhol Weekend

MARTIN LAWRENCE GALLERIES
NEED A BIT MORE SATISFACTION?

MARTIN LAWRENCE GALLERIES IN LAS VEGAS
WELCOMES THE ROLLING STONES TO LAS VEGAS ON MAY 11
WITH MULTI-SENSORY WARHOL WEEKEND EXHIBITION

 

Gallery to Showcase Mick Jagger/Andy Warhol Suite;
Rolling Stones Music All Weekend and Multiple Showings of
Acclaimed Documentary, Crossfire Hurricane

 

With one of the only full-suite collections of Andy Warhol’s famed 10-print Jagger Suites in existence, the Martin Lawrence Galleries at The Forum Shops in Las Vegas is set to celebrate the arrival of the Rolling Stones in Las Vegas via a one-of-a-kind, multi-sensory exhibit during the weekend of May 10-12.  The weekend long homage will feature the entire Warhol/Jagger Suite, as well as be accompanied by a soundtrack of the Rolling Stones classics and multiple screenings of their documentary, Crossfire Hurricane.

 

By the 1970’s Warhol no longer relied on found imagery and had expanded his range of subjects. He began to take his own photographs and the hand-made look became increasingly apparent by additions of collage elements using torn cheap graphic Color Aid papers, which were produced in a collection of colors. The series of ten screen prints of Mick Jagger were characteristic of this change in technique and the artist used an assortment of ten of his own photographs that he had taken of Jagger to create the now iconic collection.  The Martin Lawrence Galleries in Las Vegas is a 26,000 square foot celebration of the arts, both classic and contemporary, and Warhol’s Jagger Suite has become the most visited area of the gallery’s vast collection.

 

“This gallery was built to showcase the masters from all of the eras, and Andy Warhol is unquestionably one of the most popular and definitive artists of the 20th Century,” explains Staci Goulet, gallery director.  “We have a great collection of Warhol’s, but the Jagger Suite is by far the most popular and we are one of the few places in the world where you can view all 10 screen prints. When we heard the band was making Las Vegas one of the few stops on their tour this year, we decided it was the perfect opportunity to let all of their fans know about this special collection and we wanted to add a bit of rock n’ roll to gallery, so when you visit that weekend you will be surrounded by the Rolling Stones via art, music and film.”

 

About Martin Lawrence Galleries:
Martin Lawrence Galleries, which has been in business for over 35 years, is the premier fine arts gallery network in the United States, with galleries in New York, Boston, New Orleans, Oak Brook, IL, Dallas, San Francisco, Orange County, La Jolla, CA, and Maui.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Announces Eclectic Flaunt Magazine Artists for P3Studio Spring Residencies

cosmopolitan

THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES  ECLECTIC FLAUNT MAGAZINE ARTISTS FOR P3STUDIO SPRING RESIDENCIES

 

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announces a unique line-up of renowned artists scheduled for the P3Studio artist-in-residence program. After recent successful collaboration on Do Not Disturb with Flaunt Magazine, The Date Farmers, Bert Rodriguez, Alan Aldridge and David LaChapelle are set to showcase their unique individual styles in the ever-changing P3Studio.

For those looking to take a piece of the artwork home, an exclusive set of door hangers that includes work by each artist is available for $30 starting Wednesday, Feb. 27 at Monogram and Vitals, located on The Cosmopolitan’s second and first floors respectively.

Theo-Mass Lexileictous was the first in this collaboration to showcase his work in-studio from Feb. 21-Feb 25. Below are the remaining artist-in-residence participants that will be in P3Studio through March 24.

Friday, March 1 – Sunday, March 3
The Date Farmers
6 – 11 p.m.

Dynamic Mexican-American duo Carlos Ramirez and Armando Lerma’s experimental work with spray paint, bricolage, prison art, tattoos, pastel, oils and wood illuminate an element of folklore, swinging the door between worlds wide open. Their environment-based pieces often include desert creatures and indigenous elements with a nod to their journeys to Oaxaca. Credit for their majestic artwork stems from the fateful date farm which Ramirez dedicated hard sweat and labor to and Lerma’s father owned.

Friday, March 8 – Sunday, March 10
Bert Rodriguez
6 – 11 p.m.

Miami-bred artist Bert Rodriguez shows his unidentifiable style of art through an array of methods which explore the relationships between art and artistic value. Rodriguez works with a range of media, in different styles and genres. He uses various methods to translate his ideas, which explore the relationship existing between audience and art. Rodriguez uses wit and irony in creating work that deals with the human experience.

 

Friday, March 15 – Sunday, March 17
Alan Aldridge
6 – 11 p.m.

Aldridge was born in London but currently resides in Los Angeles.  He first worked as an illustrator at “The Sunday Times Magazine,” and later became the art director of Penguin Books. As art director he specifically focused on science fiction book covers and introduced his style which resonated with the mood of the time, the early 1960s. His creative designs and intoxicating images captured the dreams of a generation – in The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, on album covers for Elton John, The Who, and Cream and on the infamous Chelsea Girls poster for Andy Warhol. During the 1960s and 1970s he was responsible for many album covers, and helped create the graphic style of that era. His work was characterized by a flowing, cartoony style and soft airbrushing – very much in tune with the psychedelic styles of the times.

 

Friday, March 22 – Sunday, March 24
David LaChapelle
6 – 11 p.m.

Connecticut-born David LaChapelle began his photography career in the 1980s when he started showing his artwork in New York City galleries. His work caught the eye of Andy Warhol, who gave him his first job as a photographer at Interview magazine. He went on to befriend celebrities, which led to his experimentation directing music videos, theatrical events and documentary films, reaching out to individuals’ unconsciousness with profound social messages. A former Tel Aviv Museum’s “Artist of the Year” and Sundance Film Festival award winner, LaChapelle’s work has been featured in New York’s famed Lever House, Interview Magazine, Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone and across the globe in Shanghai. LaChapelle is known for combining a hyper-realistic aesthetic with social messages.

P3Studio is an artist-in-residence program that invites international and local artists to create projects that are interactive, participatory and that give guests the opportunity to connect with art at an authentic and personal level. The viewer can watch an artist at work, enter the studio and engage with them while experiencing the immersive installations.

A blaze of red draws attention to Ali’s most valuable asset, in this iconic image of his fist.  Poised and ready to strike.

This definitive version of 13MB includes avant-garde electro-rock remixes by Scott Hardkiss: 

“I’ll Keep It with Mine (Scott Hardkiss electric remix)”  

“It Don’t Rain In Beverly Hills (Scott Hardkiss)”  

When Dean & Britta, the electro-pop duo formerly of Luna, opened their vaults of their music for the Andy Warhol screen tests to DJ/ producer Scott Hardkiss a kinetic force drew him to several of their recordings:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One was a cover of Bob Dylan’s unreleased “I’ll Keep It With Mine,” the song Dean & Britta performed to accompany Warhol’s transfixing screen test of Nico of The Velvet Underground. This remix combines classic indie rock sounds (psychedelic, shoegazer & drone) with electronic dance music transforming the essential elements of the track while placing it in a new electronic space. A futuristic effect on Britta Phillips’ voice, strings replaced with synths, and trippy chimes by Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3 / MGMT) give Dean Wareham’s classic Galaxie 500 guitar sound a whole new 21st century feel. Timeless electro-space rock!!!

Scott also jumped at the chance to remix the perfect rainy-day pop song “It Don’t Rain in Beverly Hills,” which Dean & Britta recorded for Warhol’s screen test of Edie Sedgwick. Hardkiss adds a subtle tapestry of programmed drum beats, synthesizer sweeps, delays & fx to modernize the feel w/ electronic touches while keeping all the warmth of Dean Wareham’s melodic vocal and guitars. The result perfectly captures Edie’s iconoclastic “poor little rich girl” glamour & sweetness, which was lost forever as Edie died shortly after this screentest shot in 1964.

More about 13 Most Beautiful:

 

Dean & Britta have been making waves with their highly acclaimed 13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests a special, limited-edition album. Originally commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum, the project began as a live multimedia show featuring Dean & Britta performing in front of 13 shorts selected from Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests collection. The screen tests are silent portrait films made by Andy Warhol at the Factory between 1964 and 1966 with each film focusuing on a unique subject. The duo selected 13 subjects (including Dennis Hopper, Nico, Lou Reed), which became the inspiration for the music. Produced by Dean & Britta in Brooklyn, the album version features studio recordings of material written by the pair from the live show as well covers including Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep It with Mine” and the Velvet Underground’s “Not a Young Man Anymore” plus several extraordinary remixes & versions by Scott Hardkiss, Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3 / MGMT), Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T-Rex) and My Robot Friend.
