Rockarchive.com in collaboration with Proud Galleries proudly present Jill Furmanovsky: No Music No Life, an exhibition that at its heart exudes Jill’s love of music and her unique ability to capture its vibrancy and spirit throughout her career.
No Music No Life
Exhibition at Proud Galleries
32 John Adam Street, Charing Cross, London WC2N 6BP
17 November 2023 – 3 February 2024
Open Tuesday to Saturday – 11 to 6pm
The exhibition showcases some of the most celebrated shots from Jill’s extensive archive including images of Pink Floyd, Joy Division, Miles Davis, and Leonard Cohen, with the centrepiece, her stunning award-winning portrait of Charlie Watts.
Highlights include Chic’s electrifying performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1979, Oasis at Maine Road, with Noel Gallagher’s arms outstretched to an adoring crowd in 1996, and Amy Winehouse, beautifully captured backstage at the Union Chapel the same year.
A section of the exhibition is dedicated to Jill’s unique and intimate collection of Oasis images that reflect her close relationship with the band during their zenith. A short film has been created especially for the exhibition by Yvonne Catterson showing Jill & Noel Gallagher discussing her work and unique relationship with the band over those unprecedented years. Bringing the stories behind the imagery closer, an audio guide is available for visitors to access through their own headphones narrated by Jill, Noel Gallagher and Chrissie Hynde.
Prints from the exhibition will be available to buy, including new limited editions especially created for the show as well as a range of books and other merchandise. In addition to Jill’s prints a small selection of other work from Rockarchive will also be on show during weekends in the gallery basement.
