On October 9th of this year, John Lennon would have turned 80 years old. To commemorate the momentous occasion, Morrison Hotel Gallery reimagines what it means to be a dreamer in the digital age with its latest online exhibition, opening Thursday, October 1st, 2020 with select works on view at both its Los Angeles and New York City outposts by appointment only. Reflecting upon the enduring ideals championed by the late-great visionary through photographic masterworks from Bob Gruen, Astrid Kirchherr and Allan Tannenbaum among others, In His Life retrospects the artist and activist's colossal rise from pompadoured Liverpudlian to metaphysical legend whose posthumous lens of perception speaks to the sensibilities of a socio-political present.As the world seeks to come together to commemorate the late-great John Lennon’s birthday on the cusp of seismic cultural awakening, In His Life lends itself to endless cultural rumination on what was, what might have been and that which remains eight prolific decades later. Harkening to more than a return to in-gallery activations, this exhibition moves beyond familiar holdings of fine art music photography with the unveiling of several rarely-seen images and special offering of four of Lennon's original handwritten lyric sheets ("Yer Blues", "I'm So Tired", "Dear Prudence", "Watching the Wheels") made available in limited edition fine art prints by the John Lennon Estate on behalf of Yoko Ono.
