As of today, May 6th, Morrison Hotel Gallery invites you to experience Idols, a web-exclusive world tour spanning seven continents and more than a half-century of iconic imagery. Idols reframe the praiseworthy works of internationally-acclaimed photographers such as Terry O’Neill, Peter Hujar, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen and Timothy White through virtual renderings at the intersection of kitsch and hallmarks of human expression.
Like uncanny postcards of iconic worlds colliding, Idols ushers in a new age of virtual expression and MHG experiences as this fine art activation makes its way to MorrisonHotelGallery.com as of today. Along with viewing these iconic photographs you can also purchase gallery prints framed or not framed on the site as well.
Follow along both on the Morrison Hotel Gallery site and at @IdolsWorldTour on Instagram as they explore, in real-time, what it means to take these epochal works of modern portraiture beyond their Morrison Hotel Gallery home and out in the “real” world at large, situating iconic imagery in cross-contextual dialogue with billboards, megaliths and masterpieces.
About Morrison Hotel Gallery
Morrison Hotel Gallery® is the world leader in fine art music photography representing over 125 of the most highly acclaimed music photographers — those who made, and continue to make, an indelible mark on music culture with photographic portrayals of the industry’s most influential artists.
Morrison Hotel Gallery was founded by former record company marketing executive Peter Blachley; music retail industry professional Richard Horowitz; and legendary music photographer Henry Diltz. The concept of Morrison Hotel Gallery originated with the Diltz archive and the eponymous Morrison Hotel album cover taken by Diltz in 1969 for The Doors.
With it’s flagship gallery in Soho, New York City, the gallery has always maintained a presence in Los Angeles, and is now suitably housed in the rockstar’s hotel, Sunset Marquis Hotel – this incarnation the brainchild of world-renowned author, director and photographer Timothy White. White, the gallery’s newest partner, is well known for documenting the charisma of an astounding list of Hollywood royalty.
In 2016, Morrison Hotel Gallery joined forces with Fleetwood Mac founder and rock icon Mick Fleetwood to open our newest gallery in Fleetwood’s General Store in Lahaina, Maui.
