10.3. - 7.4.2019
curated by John Colton and Emily Smeaton in cooperation with MIchael Spencer Jones
On the advent of the 25th anniversary of the release of Oasis' first full album Definitely Maybe (1994), BROWSE GALLERY Berlin presents iconic photo art by Michael Spencer Jones created for the band. His surreal photographic image compositions, shot during the "golden era"of the band in the mid to late 1990s, adorn the covers of three Oasis album records und several singles.
Working with Oasis, Michael Spencer Jones developed a surreal and unique imagery for the band which corresponded organically with their music. His photographic compositions helped much to create and transmit content and identity of the famous Britpop legend. Michael produced images which spoke to the sense of being and the lifestyle of a whole generation all over the world. Through his images fans connected to the music and strengthened their emotional ties with the band. The exhibition lets us experience how Michael was using his photographic art providing the look and feel for setting the context - physically and spiritually - for a generation to slip into the vibe and phänomenon of Oasis.
Setting the Scene: Oasis 25 is a celebration and a journey into how these extraordinary covers were made. A revealing look into the stories behind them and how the fans connected so strongly to them. The exhibition features a host of previously unseen photographs of Oasis, together with editions of sleeve artwork never before seen in public, and items of memorabilia from the shoots themselves including the songs that inspired them. There will be one or two surprises as well but the images speak the loudest in this unique exhibition scheduled for its global première in Berlin, March 2019
