Controversial photograher David LaChapelle displays his new Michael Jackson “tribute” exhibit in NYC. I brought it HERE for you to see.
LaChapelle is featuring his mind blowing show at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York this week. Works featured included Martyred Jackson which are glaringly critical interpretations of mainstream culture. The late legendary pop star Michael Jackson is posed as the American Jesus.
Michael Jackson’s influence is undoubtedly as magnetic as that of a religious God in mainstream culture. By projecting Michael Jackson as Jesus we are forced to ponder his persecution. Michael Jackson in some ways is a pop culture martyr, although he was castigated for his transgressions, he also represented the ills of society that were already present.
