Art. Music. Activism. (2020)
Catalogue to accompany Kurt Jackson's 2020 exhibition Art. Music. Activism. Kurt Jackson, Glastonbury Festival and Greenpeace at the Jackson Foundation Gallery, St Just.
This immersive exhibition looks to share a selection of Jackson’s work as Glastonbury Festival Artist-in-Residence as well as celebrating the 50th anniversary of both Glastonbury Festival and Greenpeace.
These paintings and sketches show festival royalty looking out across their massed ecstatic armies, veiled travellers from the Sahara cradling their guitars like electric scimitars, lost revellers fluttering around the lights of a doughnut stall and panoramic landscapes of the vast faerie city of mud and scaffolding, neon and wood smoke that swirls across the Vale of Avalon after summer solstice.
Kurt has painted and sketched over 20 years’ worth of Festival moments at Glastonbury and we love the way he captures the festival landscape so beautifully. I’m really looking forward to seeing this collection all in one place.
