A Traveling Exhibit Of Kurt Cobain’s Artwork Is Coming Soon

first_imgKurt Cobain was known as quite the prolific songwriter in his 27 years, but the grunge icon was also a revered artist. In an NYT profile piece on Jeff Jampol, head of Jampol Artist Management, the executive revealed plans to take Cobain’s artwork on the road for fans everywhere.Jampol works with the legacies of artists who have passed, like Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, The Doors and more. His newest client is the Cobain family, and he is working with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain in hopes to bringing this artwork to life. The exhibit will apparently feature “Kurt’s works and his art and his possessions,” and is scheduled to appear across the country.“He’s got some amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen or even heard of,” Jampol said, and added that Cobain’s work “going to be relevant for centuries.”This story really begins in 2010, when Courtney Love signed over Cobain’s life rights to their daughter. Frances Bean Cobain has been instrumental in creating Montage Of Heck, the documentary that HBO released last year, and various other exhibits. The work of Cobain is crucial to the history of music and culture, and we can’t wait to see what this exhibit brings.last_img read more
