Jakprints Presents... INSTRUMENTHEAD Music & Fine Art Exhibit By Michael Weintrob

April 25, 2013
  • Address: 2121 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA
  • Times: 7:00 pm-close
  • Visit Website

Pop-Up Gallery Opens April 25 w/ Live Music From Papa Mali & Friends feat. Eric McFadden, Rob Mercurio, Eric Bolivar, Nigel Hall and DJ Logic.

 

On the eve of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, photographer Michael Weintrob will open the doors to a pop-up photography exhibit called InstrumentHead -- a surrealist portrait series that captures the identity of Grammy-award winners, New Orleans legends and world musicians without ever showing their face. Instead, the entertainers pose with their instruments suspended in front of their heads, creating intimate expression of each artist within the frame of a single, iconic photograph.

Though Weintrob's InstrumentHead collection includes more than 250 artists since he began shooting the series in 2006, he has hand-selected 75 images for his Jazz Fest exhibit, many of which have never before been seen by the media or public to date. Presented by Jakprints, the photographs will be sold as 36 x 48 limited-edition fine art Giclee prints, with 20 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Tipitina's Foundation and the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation.

"The music and culture of this city has had such a profound impact on my life over the years, that I want to create an opportunity to give back to the New Orleans community," said Weintrob.

In turn, Papa Mali, Eric McFadden (Parliament Funkadelic), Rob Mercurio (Galactic), Eric Bolivar (Anders Osborne), DJ Logic and Nigel Hall (Lettuce) will also pay it forward, donating live music for the exhibit's April 25 Grand Opening. In connection with the Frenchmen Art Market, the pop-up gallery will be open daily at 2121 Chartres Street from 7pm to close April 25 through May 5.
