Michael Jackson: On the Wall

Michael Jackson: On the Wall

Book Tickets
  • The National Portrait Gallery presents Michael Jackson: On the Wall, a landmark exhibition exploring Michael Jackson's influence on some of the leading names in contemporary art, spanning several generations of artists across all media.

    Curated by Dr Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition opens this summer to coincide with what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday.

    Michael Jackson is one of the most influential cultural figures to come out of the 20th century and his legacy continues into the 21st century. His significance is widely acknowledged when it comes to music videos, dance, choreography and fashion, but his considerable influence on contemporary art is an untold story. Since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982, Jackson has become the most depicted cultural figure in visual art by an extraordinary array of leading contemporary artists.

    For the first time, Michael Jackson: On the Wall will bring together the works of over 40 of these artists, drawn from public and private collections around the world, including new works made especially for the exhibition.

    Michael Jackson: On the Wall is produced with the co-operation of the Michael Jackson Estate.
