Richard Kern 'Some Famous People' Exhibition
The legendary photographer's work comes to Sydney.
We're sure you've heard of New York-based photographer, filmmaker and writer Richard Kern. He has shot erotic films with the likes of Henry Rollins and Lydia Lunch, making music videos for Sonic Youth and King Missile and likes taking pictures of naked ladies. He's also shot a shit load of famous people, like Vincent Gallo, Nick Cave, Chloe Sevigny, Harmony Korine, Mark Ronson and more. Now he's bringing portraits of said famous people to Sydney! Vice Australia and American Apparel are organising an exhibition this August, featuring 37 of Kern's large format works.
The launch night is open to all, so if you live in Sydney, you should definitely get down there! Speaking of Richard Kern-related things, SBS2 will be airing a VICE series called Shot By Kern on 20 August 2013. Late at night, obvs. See the event page on Facebook for more details about the exhibition.
