Life through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx...IRIS Nights @ Annenberg Photography Space!
Fans of Nikki Sixx are anxious to snap up tickets for a much-ballyhooed event to launch at the Annenberg Space for Photography next Thursday (August 25th).
An "Evening with Nikki Sixx and Kristine McKenna" is expected to sell-out!
Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue) is a Grammy-nominated musician with over 80 million album sales to date.
The dynamic Pop personality is also a New York Times bestselling author who has three books under his belt which include "The Heroin Diaries", "The Dirt" (written with his Mötley Crüe bandmates) and "This Is Gonna Hurt: Photography" (Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx).
According to the curators at the gallery - "Life through the distorted lens of Nikki Sixx is an exploration of beauty, its perception, and how we view ourselves based upon Sixx's journals" - featuring a collection of eclectic photographs available for the first time in print.
Kristine McKenna is slated to act as moderator in a follow-up lecture that will focus on the rock star's photographic musings.
McKenna is a widely published critic and journalist who was a staff writer at the LA TIMES daily newspaper (1977 to 1998). Her profiles and criticisms have appeared in Artforum, The New York Times, Artnews, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone.
Because of the high-interest in the special event the Museum has instituted a handful of new procedures:
* Tickets will be limited to one per person.
* There won't be a standby list for the lecture. (no tickie - no laundry)
* Doors will close promptly at 6:30 pm. (late-comers will not be admitted)
* Pre-signed books will be available for purchase (no on-site signings)
* Photography is not permitted inside the Space for Photography.
Tickets will be released on Wednesday, August 17 at 12 noon & Thursday, August 18 at 9:30 am.
See 'ya there!
