Description

Josh Gosfield: Gigi Gaston, The Black Flower

Josh Gosfield makes his Minneapolis debut with his internationally acclaimed exhibition Gigi Gaston, the Black Flower. Gosfield has assembled the definitive archive devoted to the 1960s French pop star Gigi Gaston. Gigi’s music and the spectacle of her tragic life riveted the public through the 60s and 70s. The exhibition documents her life and loves with archival photographs, posters, record covers, magazine and newspaper articles, and music videos. We see her Gypsy family’s escape from Bulgaria, her affair with her stepbrother, her first guitar, her rise up (and fall down) the charts, the car crashes, funerals, love triangles, and the murder trial. All this played out in a garish media spotlight before the insatiable eyes of her public.

In fact Gigi Gaston did not exist. Her persona and all her documents are the fictional creation of Josh Gosfield working with the aid of actors, stylists, makeup artists, and Photoshop. This exhibition can leave you wondering if Madonna exists. How do you know?

The exhibition will feature over 50 oversized prints—limited edition archival digital prints featuring Gigi.

Josh Gosfield is painter, photographer, illustrator and videographer who has exhibited and been published widely. He resides in New York City.

Cost Free.
