Grunge: Rise of A Generation

Defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as a general term of disparagement for someone or something repugnant or odious, unpleasant or dull, "grunge" finds its way into music lingo by the 1960s to describe the unfavorably fuzzy or unclean sounds which might've otherwise undercut cheaply or poorly made records. This etymology is forever changed in 1987 when Seattle record label Sub Pop introduces a catalogue of "ultra-loose grunge" locals including the likes of Soundgarden, Nirvana and Mudhoney, thus giving namesake to a region’s budding subcultural movement that would soon thereafter sweep the globe up in its angst-ridden embrace. Three decades later, Morrison Hotel Gallery is pleased to reclaim the term once more with 'Grunge: Rise of A Generation', shining retrospective light on a teenage riot's coming-of-age at all three gallery locations starting Friday, March 8th.
