Over the past 50 years, The Grateful Dead have inspired generations of fans through their unique visual language, spirit of openness, and endearing lyrics and melodies. Last summer, artist Matthew Brannon worked alongside fashion designers Elijah Funk and Alix Ross of Online Ceramics on a Dead-inspired exhibition at David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles.
At the core of the show, The Galaxy Song was about change and variation, in relation to the landscape of your own mind. Comprised of paintings, sculpture and unique silkscreen prints, each artwork prompted the viewer to reconsider how they would see the same object or idea on any given day.
David Kordansky Gallery has published a limited-edition catalog that succinctly documents the past exhibition. The eponymously titled book is an edition of 1,000, spans 96 pages and features an essay by The New Yorker’s Naomi Fry. The Galaxy Song is available to purchase at the gallery’s website for $55 USD.
