Anna Sui Shares 2017 Fall Line with Morrison Hotel Gallery for Psychedelic Photography Exhibit
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the album Are You Experienced by Jimi Hendrix. Featuring the photography of Karl Ferris and designs from Blithe Spirit, the Anna Sui Fall 2017 Collection.
In the late 1960s, deep political unrest set the stage for a revolution of the mind: the psychedelic era. During this time of unbridled experimentation, writers, artists, and musicians unleashed limits and broke down boundaries with their work. Timothy Leary had readers explore the bounds of consciousness while musicians like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin gave them an electric soundtrack for their mind trips. Artists like Rick Griffin also worked in the psychedelic style, creating the brightly-colored, Art Nouveau-inspired rock posters so often associated with the 60s. Psychedelia also found its way into rock photography, and leading the way was legendary photographer Karl Ferris. Manipulating color and working with various filters and lenses, Ferris created images like the world had never seen.
On the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking album and cover, Morrison Hotel Gallery is stepping through the looking glass into the Age of Psychedelia with an exhibition and sale featuring Are You Experienced photographer Karl Ferris, as well as Neal Preston, Joel Brodsky and other photographers represented by the gallery. Images of Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, The Doors and others will take people on a trip back through the psychedelic era.
The exhibition and sale will be held at Morrison Hotel Gallery in SoHo and their West Hollywood location inside The Sunset Hotel. Both exhibits will open on August 24th and run until September 10th.
