Standing in a room full of selfies taken by Stevie Nicks probably feels something like being a newborn baby bird encircled in a nest, wrapped in the warmth of your mother's wing, at twilight. The Fleetwood Mac frontwoman was selfie-ing way before Instagram, and now her (to use outdated Vernacular) "self portraits" will be on display at the Morrison Hotel Gallery.
The exhibition, according to ArtsBeat, will start at 201 Mulberry Street (October 10th and 11th) and then move to the Morrison Hotel Gallery (at 116 Prince Street) on October 13th. It will run through the end of the month, presumably closing on Halloween, because "white witch."
The show—called "24 K Gold"—will contain "self-portraits by Stevie Nicks from between 1975 and 1987. The pictures for the show were selected by Dave Stewart, the Eurythmics guitarist, who co-produced her In Your Dreams album." All portraits were "taken in the wee hours of the night, both at home and on tour, using Polaroid cameras." Nicks told ArtsBeat she was taking the portraits because she "wanted to learn how to become a photographer. I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director—it was my joy. I was the model.”
