Do you see any relationship between Michael Jackson, Bruegel the Elder and Hyeronimus Bosch? What synergistic interaction could possibly link modern popular culture to the Fine Arts?
This conference offers an unprecedented journey into the heart and soul of a painting by popular surrealist artist, Mark Ryden, conceived and executed to be the artwork sleeve of Michael Jackson's iconic album, Dangerous, in 1991 at the request of Michael Jackson, whose contributions to the painting make it a true collaborative effort between two great artists.
An in-depth decoding for an enigmatic and codified opus, this conference (and the book he introduces, by the same author) witnesses the cultural dimension, too often ignored, of the most famous artist in the History of Recorded Music. A pictorial analysis, this talk examines links to works of great masters who are at the very source of the painting. It also provides a musical analysis, plunging the viewer into the stylistic eclecticism of an amazing album, one which invites both Beethoven and the rapper Heavy D into the same conversation, showing Michael Jackson's incredible ability to create and compose as well as his knowledge and appreciation of the artistic and cultural environment he navigated with such precision.
