Morrison Hotel Gallery Salutes Neil Young
Morrison Hotel Gallery Salutes The Enduring Legacy Of Neil Young With Career Photographic Retrospective, Long May You Run
Featuring Photographers Joel Bernstein, Danny Clinch, Henry Diltz, and Julie Gardner
Neil Young’s fiery emotionality, down home ethos, and heartfelt songwriting is as vibrant now as it was six-decades ago. Young turns 71 on November 12th, and he’s still hitting high watermarks, having recently performed at Desert Trip, alongside The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, and The Who.
Long May You Run is a tribute to Young’s artistic legacy, and it has the special distinction of being the first ever exhibit to appear in all three galleries. It will show at Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel from November 10th thru November 16th; Morrison Hotel Gallery in SoHo on December 1st; and, finally, at Morrison Hotel Gallery in Maui located within Mick Fleetwood’s General Store January 12th, 2017.
The photographers represented by Morrison Hotel Gallery have been with Young, onstage, backstage, and offstage for it all. Long May You Run will showcase the work of photographers Joel Bernstein, Danny Clinch, Henry Diltz, and Julie Gardner. Diltz and Bernstein’s images document the first few decades of Young’s formative years with Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and as a solo artist. Danny Clinch’s images snapshot the glory days of 1990s until now, and Julie Gardner is the new face in the show-her work captures the freshness of the artist as he continues to stretch and grow six decades in his incredible career.
The thread running through Young’s six-decade career is organic, straight-from-the-gut-and-the-heart artistic expression. Even in the1980s, when his contemporaries suited up for MTV and “contemporized” their approach, Young maintained his earthy roots. As the glitzy 1980s gave away to the grungy 1990s, Young became lauded as an icon for the emerging alt-rock and grunge scene with Seattle bands such as Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Alice In Chains siphoning from his raw and purposeful music and his flannel and ripped jeans attire.
Long May You Run salutes the amazing breadth of the two-time Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Famer and Grammy Award winner’s career, from his start in Buffalo Springfield until the present. Along the way, Neil Young has worked with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Pearl Jam, Booker T. Jones, Crazy Horse, and The Stray Gators, among many other collaborators. He’s a fearless artist who has followed his heart through a labyrinthine artistic continuum.
Joel Bernstein is an acclaimed photographer whose work, spanning more than three decades, chronicles the inner lives and public moments of some of the most important singer-songwriters, performers and musicians of our time. They include Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, Prince, Jackson Browne, Laura Nyro, Tom Petty and many others. Bernstein’s many album covers are commonly listed among the most influential in rock’s visual history.
