Opening January 7, 2011
Joni Mitchell is one of the most revered musicians of the last century. She is a confidant, sister, mother, seer and a personification of the artist as archetype. Her influence as a creative muse spans further than the world of music, and many a "lonely painter" has sought inspirations from her words and chords. Joni is an "artist's diva" - far from the glossy hooks of traditional radio pop stars, she has risen up through the record collections, mix tapes, CD jewel cases and Mp3 players - passed on from one sensitive soul to another for over four decades. The exhibiton will include works from contemporary artists who have all chosen Mitchell as their subject. Works will include performance, video, painting, drawing, textile, photography and sculpture.
