Sonic Youth Etc Sensational Fix


If you are a fan of Sonic Youth and kept track of their collaborations with various visual artists, film makers, designers and musicians, you'll love the Sensational Fix catalogue that accompanies their exhibition.

The exhibition was initiated and curated by freelance curator Roland Groenenboom in collaboration with the band, and focuses around the multidisciplinary output of Sonic Youth and related works by other artists.

It provides an alternative history of contemporary culture and questions the division between 'high art' and 'low art', featuring themes such as teenage rebellion, adolescent wanderlust, gender, fame, fashion, sexuality, and religion.

Their album covers, inner sleeves and inlays have featured artists such as James Welling, Richard Kern, Dan Graham, Gerhard Richter, Raymond Pettibon, Mike Kelley, William S. Burroughs, Savage Pencil, Richard Prince, Christopher Wool, and Jeff Wall, so the catalogue is a great way to view their creative output. As a bonus you also get a 7 inch record with Steve Schelley and Thurston Moore.

You can currently catch the exhibition at Kunsthalle Dusseldorf where it opens on January 30th, but if you can't wait until then or can't make it to Germany why not buy the catalogue which is priced at £58.81 from Colette.
