LACMA and Interscope Records to Showcase 50 New Artworks Inspired by Seminal Album Covers

To commemorate the label’s 30th anniversary.

Recent visitors to LACMA will have likely noticed a giant wall of records that were placed at the entrance of the Yoshitomo Nara exhibition. Opening later this month, album artwork will serve as the premise of a new show, titled “Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined.”

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Interscope Records, the exhibition brings together 50 new works made by artists, such as Julie Curtiss, Shepard Fairey, Damien Hirst, Kehinde Wiley, Takashi Murakami, and many more. Each artist has revisited one of the many influential musicians that Interscope has represented over the past three decades, that range Tupac, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga and Dr. Dre, amongst many.

The project was conceived by a number of Interscope executives, including co-founder, Jimmy Iovine, who reiterates, that the label’s “original mission was to find the most profound artists, empower their creativity and watch what happens…For the 30th, we wanted to continue that vision by assembling the most admired visual artists and empower them with that same creative license to honor the musical artists we have worked with over three decades.”

Additionally, the institution is working with Snapchat to provide an AR component that will further transform the experience. “Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined” will be on view at LACMA from January 30 to February 13. Check out the full list of exhibiting artists below, along with the album they were inspired by.
