The Funk Gallery
The Funk what can you say? If you could only listen to one form of music on the deserted island. The best music in the history of the world. The most important music in modern times. The music that taught the world how to get on and find the one. The spirit and joy mixed with soul and independence. The art about Funk is an open love letter to the Funk.
The visual expressiveness of that cultural period is the glue. The clothing, the flavor, the black experience through the psychedelic lens, the radical new ideas, all came together to inform the style of the Funk. The psychedelic influence on the Funk is undeniable as exemplified by Sly and the Family Stone takin’ you higher at Woodstock. Who influenced who? The Funk became a melting pot for musicians to end up in. From Hendrix and Hancock to James and George the Funk was and is a multi-headed cultural hydra to be dealt with.
This gallery will continue the celebration of the Funk in all of it’s formats. For the one by the one.
