John Lennon fans at the ready, because Anna Schwartz Gallery has just the thing for you.
From July 27 – September 28, a 25-channel video installation, Working Class Hero (A Portrait of John Lennon), will showcase 25 fans of the legendary Beatle, who have been filmed by video artist Candice Breitz while singing along to Lennon’sPlastic Ono Bandalbum in full. The catch? The backing music has been removed so all that remains is an untrained acapella choir passionately belting out the songs. Breitz’s work is designed to explore fan culture in the context of society’s mainstream entertainment and presents audiences with a distinct portrait of Lennon by combining the different perspectives of adoring fans whose lives have been affected by his music.
