Shoreditch-based Kurt Cobain exhibition revels in grunge spirit

WHILE different musical fads have swept through the pop charts across the decades, from indie, to R&B and ska, few icons manage to transcend their genre. Kurt Cobain was one of them.

The lead singer of Nirvana has posthumously kept the 1990s alive for those old enough to remember them and a new book and exhibition will now celebrate his ongoing legend status.

Published by Belly Kids productions, Kurt and the gang is a sticker collection chronicling the life, career and cohorts of Kurt Cobain. The book is made up of a quirky and poignant array of 60 peelable stickers, as well as printed illustrations by 13 artists depicting the life and work of the grunge singer and his contemporaries, including Daniel Johnston, Courtney Love, The Pixies and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.

To celebrate the launch of Kurt and the gang, Shoreditch’s KK Outlet will host a three-week exhibition showing a selection of illustrations, alongside extended works on the theme.

Kurt and the gang will run 10-28 January at KK Outlet, 42 Hoxton Square, N1 6PB. For information, call: 020 7033 7680 or visit www.kkoutlet.com
