Thirty-one artists to explore the creative force behind the Beach Boys
A new art exhibition exploring the life and music of Brian Wilson in the 60s is to open at the Tate Gallery in St Ives in May.
The exhibibition consists of paintings, sculptures, installations and photo films to explore the genius that drove the success of the Beach Boys between 1962 and 1967.
The loosely chronological exhibits also helps to explore recent art development through the works of the thirty-one Southern Californian artists who help unravel a new perspective of Wilson’s cultuarl achievements.
Tate St Ives is the perfect setting for the Beach Boys’ exhibition – it’s placed by Porthmeor Beach, ‘a glorious stretch of sand where surf is usually up.’
“If Everybody had an Ocean: Brian Wilson: An Art Exhibition” takes place from May 26 to September 23.
As previously reported, Wilson is also working on a specially commissioned concert repertoire for the Royal Festival Hall.
Wilson has said that the new piece entitled “That Lucky Old Sun (A Narrative)” will consist of ‘four rounds – interspersed with spoken word.’
The concert is due to premiere in September.
