during a special opening evening at the Galerie MX on November 13, 2007, from
5 PM to 9 PM. The event is opened to accredited medias.
Beginning in 1980, Summers documented The Police, behind the scenes in a
series of candid and striking black and white photos. Possessing a visual gift
for composition and mood allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police more
intimately than anyone else.
Summers, one of the most prolific guitarists of all time, is now in the
midst of The Police sold-out tour celebrating their 30th reunion. Andy Summers
heralds his return with a biathlon of photographic output: an exclusive
photographic exhibition in five cities, which have been produced by HP on its
new HP Designjet Z3100 Photo Printer series, and a book published by Taschen.
The gallery shows, presented in conjunction with Rockarchive.com began in June
at the Laurie Frank Gallery in the famed Los Angeles art complex Bergamot
Station, and will be followed by similar exhibitions in July at Newbury Fine
Art in Boston and Gjethuset in Denmark.
Another inventive event of Galerie MX
Founded only last year, Galerie MX is already among Montreal's top
contemporary art galleries. Located in the magnificent international quarter,
it has been looking for artists that have gone beyond the technique, gestual
and composition of the norm. According to François Lauzon, Galerie MX
Associate: "even though all of these elements are essential to the quality of
the work, they remain secondary to the artist if they are without soul and a
unique style". Andy Summers and Galerie MX: two creative worlds to discover.
