TORONTO, ONT – On Sunday November 16th, Toronto live performance artist Jessica Gorlicky, better known as JessGo, (whose work has been commissioned by Google, Cirque du Soleil, Holt Renfrew, Coca-Cola, Guerlain, and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games) transformed JessGo’s 9,000 square foot studio into Studio 54, with 25 major works that celebrated rock legends and brought them to life through paint, light and sound.
The one-day exhibit entitled The Sound of Art included paintings (some of which were interactive) of Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, James Dean, Debra Harry and Marilyn Monroe. The artworks glowed under multi coloured strobe lights, while period music blared loudly, reminiscent of New York’s Studio 54 Disco and San Francisco’s Monterey Pop Festival.
Guests were treated to cocktails and hors d’oevours, while psychedelic dancers dressed in their summer of love flower power / psychedelic clothing grooved under a massive disco ball.
