Here’s a great exhibition for all Joe Strummer fans …
McHarg brings Joe Strummer centre stage by covering the gallery with photocopies of Joe’s lyrics, images, thoughts and scribblings. This installation is based on Strummerville’s Rehearsal Rooms that McHarg has had a hand in art directing/installing – The Roundhouse in London, Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast – and the “Joe Strummer Past Present & Future” exhibition – London & Tokyo – curated by McHarg.
On the 22nd of December 2009, as a tribute to Joe, McHarg named the Subway Gallery’s pedestrian subway were Strummer used to busk and roam, JOE STRUMMER SUBWAY. In Gordon’s words “It was an act of love and rebellion, for an artist who’s words, music and actions have left me better off.”
