A new LCD Soundsystem exhibition will be hosted in the Guinness Open Gate Brewery for the month of June.
From 1st – 22nd June fans will be able to visit the brewery to view an exclusive exhibition of never seen before photographs and artworks of the band.
Ruvan Wijesooriya’s photography collection documents LCD Soundsystem’s journey to fame by way of up close and personal images.
In addition, Wijesooriya has collaborated with artist and exhibition curator Joe Henry to create eleven paintings to go alongside the photographs and re-create LCD Pop Artworks in his own artistic language. This is a follow up to the recent success of The Lost Warhols exhibition at Brown Thomas, which Joe Henry also curated.
Joe Henry said: “Ruvan is the official photographer for LCD and has the best collection of the band I have ever seen. His access and friendship with LCD is something rare in the commercialised and controlled music industry of today, and this close relationship can be seen in the rapport between photographer and subject.
“We both discussed collaborating on this exhibition and me doing a ‘ Remix ‘ of his original photography, putting my own pop art spin on top of his photos.”
All images and artworks will be available for purchase during the exhibition.
The exhibition will be on display to the public during general Guinness Open Gate Brewery hours, Thursday and Friday from 5:30pm – 10:30pm and Saturdays from 2.00pm – 8.00pm. Tickets are priced at €9 each and include a tasting paddle. To purchase tickets, visit www.guinnessopengate.com.
To kick start the exhibition, an exclusive DJ set by Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem will take place at the Brewery on 1st June. Tickets to the launch event are priced at €25 each and are on a first-come first-served basis with limited spaces available.
