Today at Kohn Gallery to see Mark Ryden: The Gay Nineties. I’ve missed LA! More to come from my art-filled day.
Mark Ryden created this video for Nick Cave’s contribution to his concept album “The Gay Nineties - Olde Tyme Music”.
This album is comprised of an array of musicians and artists performing their interpretation of the 1892 song “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two).” It is a part of Ryden’s art exhibition “The Gay Nineties West” which opened at Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles, CA on May 3, 2014. All profits from this record are being donated to “Little Kids Rock,” a nonprofit that revitalizes music education in disadvantaged schools.
Mark Ryden’s long-anticipated solo show “The Gay 90s: West” opened last weekend at Kohn Gallery in LA. Check out opening night photos on Hi-Fructose.
The Mark Ryden public gallery opening on Saturday.
Katy Aphrodite, a piece from Mark Ryden’s new show “The Gay 90s.” Ryden’s exhibit opens today, May 3rd, at the Kohns Gallery in Los Angeles.
"The first time I actually heard of who she was, my 11-year-old niece said, ‘There’s this girl who really likes you,’ " Ryden says about approaching Katy Perry for the project. "I guess she had mentioned me in some interviews. I just got to meet her, and we were admirers of each other, and I asked her, and she did it."
In addition to the portrait, Ryden has worked with Perry as well a number of other artists on a limited-edition album. On the record, titled The Gay Nineties Old Tyme Music: Daisy Bell, each performer will do a rendition of the same song, “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two).”The album, printed on 180 g red vinyl, is limited to 999 copies, all hand-numbered and signed by Ryden. Half of the records will be sold at the gallery when the show opens and half will be sold on the artist’s website, beginning May 13. A spokesperson for the gallery said that they anticipate the albums will sell out in “about five minutes.” The proceeds from the record, which will sell for $99.99, will benefit Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit that supports musical education in disadvantaged elementary schools.
