Michael Jackson: On the WallFor Michael Jackson fans and super-fans - and it doesn't get more committed than the 16 singing Thriller in Candice Breitz's 'King' - the National Portrait Gallery's major exhibition on the man in the mirror will be a must-see. Almost a decade after his death, and continuing on what would have been his 60th birthday, on 29th August 2018, Michael Jackson: On the Wall shows the influence of the man who invented the moon walk on 48 artists contemporary artists. The last portrait he commissioned shows the King of Pop on horseback, painted by Kehinde Wiley looking like King Philip II. This looms large over first room you encounter. Under his eyes, walk through a cut out of Mark Ryden's cover for the Dangerous album and you'll find a picture of Elizabeth Taylor's 'Bedside Table' by Catherine Opie, Michael Jackson's 'dinner jacket' and footage of his 1992 concert in Bucharest. Very much an exhibition of art, rather than a collection memorabilia, the show reveals how the youngest person to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine has influenced - and continues to inspire - modern day artists.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
