How did contemporary artists see Michael Jackson? Next year, the very different answers to this question will be presented in the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn. From 22 March to 14 July 2019, the show, “Michael Jackson. On the Wall” will present Michael Jackson’s influence on some of the leading figures in contemporary art. It will collect works from over 40 artists from public and private collections all over the world, including items created especially for the exhibition.

In 1982, Andy Warhol was the first artist to take Michael Jackson as his subject, and with his portrait, he inspired many other artists, such as the US photographer and director David LaChapelle. He presented Jackson as an American Jesus or archangel, for example, who overcomes the devil. The artistic palette is very diverse, ranging from a diptych, a painted vase, a monochrome painting, a portrait of a horseback rider to a series of screen prints, for example.

The exhibition is currently still on show at the London Portrait Gallery, which also curated it.
