NIRVANA: TAKING PUNK TO THE MASSES

 

Evocative of the Pacific Northwest without being cliche, wooden structures

for this exhibit about Nirvana and the alternative music scene are made from

rough lumber found on land owned by Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic.

Prime artifacts, sizable environmental photomurals, and a haunting score

by composer Steve Fisk combine with the monumental and gestural qualities

of the fixtures to create a contemplative, reverential space.
