The show opens Friday evening in Covent Garden, in the building at 14 Henrietta Street. This is the first show I've had in London in almost twenty years! And it's gonna be fucking great. I'll be there for several days off and on answering questions and signing books, etc. Should be a lot of fun. Go to the ATP website or the Facebook event page for up to date info on different screenings and other bonus events while i'm around and even after i'm gone.
As stated in the press release:
This exhibition comprises of over 50 colour + black and white fine art photographic prints - many of which have never been exhibited before. Classic images from Friedman's last UK exhibition at the ICA in 1997 are also included, now printed larger and better than before. After the premiere in London, the My Rules exhibition will continue to tour worldwide.
For the Rizzoli book, Friedman reached out to some of his subjects to get in their own words what it was like to be at the crux of these cultural movements; these exclusive, often revealing words serve as an education and inspiration. My Rules is not only a remarkable chronicle of beautiful images and a primer about the origins of three radical street cultures recognized worldwide; it is also an artistic statement of inspiration for generations to follow.
The exhibition will include audio installations from Ice-T, Ian MacKaye, Alan "Ollie" Gelfand and an unreleased audio interview between Jay Adams and Glen E. Friedman.This interview formed the basis of Jay's essay in the book, and was one of the last extensive interviews he gave before his untimely death in August this year.
The exhibition will also play host to a selection of curated films by Glen E. Friedman & there will be Q&A sessions throughout the opening weekend - more details to follow.
14 Henrietta St, is a building steeped in publishing history, being previously inhabited by Victor Gollancz, a British publisher and humanitarian (publisher of George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London and Franz Kafka's,The Trial) who also ran his business from the premises.
