///SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL

SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL

On Oct.10, Montreal’s Musée d’Art Contemporain opens “Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967,” organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, where 75-year-old Ono is given a central place in the section titled “Ono, Eno, Arto: Non-musicians and the Emergence of Concept Rock.”
Organized by Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Sympathy for the Devil examines the history of the relationship between avant-garde art and rock music over the past forty years. 
From Andy Warhol’s legendary involvement with The Velvet Underground in New York in 1967 to the dazzling 2007 installation Pinball Wizard and The Byrds (Love in a Void) by British artist Jim Lambie, Sympathy for the Devil is the most comprehensive presentation ever—including artworks, album cover design, music videos and other materials—of work that has emerged from the intersection of these two cultures. The title is taken from the eponymous Rolling Stones song.
