Triptychs have been a compelling part of storytelling in art since the Middle Ages. These tri-paneled works help show a triple perspective of a single scene, as well as tell three different parts of a single story.
In association with Arthouse 18, Morrison Hotel Gallery is exploring the art of triptych photography in its newest exhibit, Trendsetters in Triptych: Part 1.
The show will include triptychs that place jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, and Miles Davis side-by-side, as well as up close and personal shots of Billie Holiday and Elvis Presley. From The Beatles and Bob Dylan to Andy Warhol and Muhammad Ali, Trendsetters in Triptych presents icons of film, sport, and screen – all viewed from this unique perspective.
Featured is the work of superstar photographers Phil Avery, Sid Avery, Henry Diltz, Brian Hamill, Gered Mankowitz, Eric Skipsey, D.A. Pennebaker, Paul Weiss, Timothy White, Bob Willoughby and others.
All triptychs have been exclusively printed for the exhibit and are presented on one full sheet. Each triptych is signed and numbered by the photographers and offered in a strictly limited edition of ten.
Trendsetters in Triptych: Part 1 opens at our NYC gallery on July 13, and at our LA gallery on July 27. Check our galleries for exact times.
