PARIS – A new exhibition dedicated to the late American superstar Michael Jackson was getting ready to open its doors to the public on Wednesday at Paris’ Grand Palace exhibition space.
“Michael Jackson: On the Wall,” organized to mark the 10th anniversary of the King of Pop’s death, brings together works by various artists and explores the singer’s cultural influence on the world or contemporary art from the 1980s.
“Although he has always been considered a reference in the world of music, video, dance and fashion, his impact on contemporary art has never been studied in such a way and never been the sole focus of an international exhibition like this one,” the Grand Palace said on its website.
The singer-songwriter has served as a source of inspiration for several artists including Andy Warhol, Lorraine O’Grady and Issac Julien, among others.
The exhibition runs from Nov. 23-Feb. 14.
