Tom will be showing four of his book jacket designs that he’s done for Tosh Berman’s TamTam Books, including covers for Serge Gainsbourg and Boris Vian titles, as part of Monsieur Gainsbourg. Opening is Thursday, September 22, 5:30 - 8.30 pm, and the exhibition runs Friday, September 23 through November 11 at Here is Elsewhere Gallery at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the disappearance of actor and singer Serge Gainsbourg, Monsieur Gainsbourg is an exhibition that not only aims to pay homage to the cult artist, but also to reveal how he continues to be an inspiration for the 21st century. Photographs from cult and avant-garde artists and friends of Gainsbourg will be shown in L.A. for the first time, while contemporary artists have been commissioned to present their own interpretations of Serge. The program will also involve conversations, video clip and musical performances (to be announced). With works by: Franck Habicht, Kami, Vanessa Atlan, Tom Recchion, Jules Muck, Robert Schwan, Remy Bond and more.
