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.
