Julius Friedman: A Celebration Exhibition at the Frazier
Opening: June 24, 2016 9 a.m.
Running through: October 9, 2016
Julius Friedman: A Celebration is a celebration of life and will feature the iconic posters that have become a part of the international arts and culture community, including “Toe on Egg,” his famous Louisville Ballet poster of a dancer's shoe balanced on an egg, and his “Fresh Paint” poster, featuring three egg yolks in the primary colors. The multi-sensory exhibit, inspired by the movement and emotion of nature, will provide visitors a visual, audio and tactile experience that delves into the mind of Friedman.
Before photos were snapped on phones and editing was done with a click of the mouse, Louisville artist Julius Friedman was creating images the old fashioned way - with his hands, his imagination and lighting. For the very first time, over 200 of Friedman’s awe-inspiring collection will be on display at the Frazier History Museum.
Friedman’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and in museums across North America, Asia and Europe. Although Friedman is one of America’s most prolific and versatile photographers and graphic artists of the modern era, he keeps his roots in Louisville and is thrilled to be presenting this exhibit where he works and plays.
