MICHAEL JACKSON ON THE WALL
Michael Jackson: On the Wall is EMMA's main exhibition in 2019!
Michael Jackson, one of the most successful recording artists of all time, also has the distinction of being the most depicted cultural figure of the last fifty years. He was an inspiration for an extraordinary array of leading artists including Isa Genzken, Grayson Perry, Andy Warhol and Kehinde Wiley.
This book, which accompanies a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, examines why so many contemporary artists have been drawn to Jackson as a subject and their artistic responses to him as an enduring international icon.
