Reports say never before seen pieces have been authorised for a travelling show by Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain
A travelling exhibition of Kurt Cobain’s art is apparently in the works, and it’s authorised by his family and a ‘legacy act’ manager.
In an interview with the New York Times, Jeff Jampol, who’s company manages deceased celebrity estates and promotes their legacies, revealed he’d been in talks with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain to oversee an art show with Cobain’s work. Jampol, who manages the estates of Janis Joplin and the Doors among others, said it would feature “Kurt’s works and his art and his possessions”.
“He’s got some amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen or even heard of,” he said.
Back in 2010, Love signed over the rights to the Nirvana frontman’s name and likeness to Frances Bean. The first authorised documentary on the artist, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, came out last year along with a collection of his demos.
Though there’s no other information about the supposed touring art exhibit, there is one you can catch if you’re in Seattle, “Nirvana: Taking Punks to the Masses”, with the largest collection of Nirvana memorabilla in the world.
