Sharing the fascinating legacy of Jim Marshall with the world, we have traveled to Italy to present an exhibit of his work in Bologna, May 9–June 20, at the Ono Arte Contemporanea. Entitled "Johnny Cash: We Are All Men in Black,"the exhibit features iconic onstage, candid and intimate images Jim captured of the country music giant who became his close friend, published in Jim's book "Pocket Cash." Fifteen limited-edition prints are also available for sale during the showing.
Portsmouth Guildhall, built in 1890, has played host to such music greats as Duke Ellington, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and David Bowie. This magnificent neoclassical building has recently been relaunched as an all-purpose arts and entertainment venue, with giant exhibition spaces, each space being a piece of art in its own right. A copper-lined space with Zodiac engravings currently has an exhibition of album cover artwork by the late great Storm Thorgerson. In July an exhibit of Jim Marshall's photographs of the Rolling Stones from their 1972 U.S.tour of the West Coast—and published in "The Rolling Stones 1972"—is the first exhibition presented in a new space being especially renovated and designed for photographic displays. This exhibit coincides with the Stones' return to the UK music scene with sellout shows in London's Hyde Park, where they last played in 1969, and was previously displayed at The O2 in London at the same time of the Stones' performance there in 2012.
The San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE) hosts "Album Covers, June 8 to July 8," celebrating the genre with the work of three of the greatest music photographers: Jim Marshall, Joel Brodsky and Barry Feinstein. Check out SFAE's website for more information.
GuitarTown—a public arts project on LA's Sunset Boulevard featuring more than 25 Gibson Les Paul-mode guitar sculpture—includes a ginormous fiberglass guitar celebrating Jim Marshall, in recognition of his artistry and contribution to music history.
Occupying its home for a year outside the Andaz Hotel (which was the original Hyatt House) on Sunset Strip, the "Jack & Jim Guitar" is 10 feet high, and its creation is the result of a (second) partnership of Jack Daniel's and Jim Marshall Photography LLC. This one-of-a-kind sculpture displays Jim's iconic "Exile on Main Street" recording photographs, taken in 1972 at Sunset Sound Studio (you'll find many of these photographs in "The Rolling Stones 1972"), as well as the bold graphics of the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 brand. The guitar will be auctioned off after its one-year exhibition.
The first solo museum exhibition of Jim's work opened at Experience Music Project (EMP) in Seattle on July 14. Coinciding with the release of "The Rolling Stones 1972" by Jim Marshall (Chronicle Books 2012) and the 50th anniversary of the band, the exhibit features 45 Rolling Stones photographs and marries an array of rare photographs produced during Jim’s lifetime, along with prints used for magazine art and proofs. It also includes estate-produced prints from the book that inspired this exhibit. Documenting moments from the recording studio to the stage, Marshall’s powerful photographs capture the camaraderie, essence and energy that make the Rolling Stones an internationally beloved band. The show runs for six months. Check out the museum's website for more details.
