In the course of his career, Gruen has shot several superstar artists from David Bowie to Led Zeppelin, from Tina Turner to The Ramones and from Patti Smith to Kiss. Still active, Gruen shot, for example, Michael Monroe and Slash, during his visit in Helsinki in 2015.
The forthcoming exhibition consists partly of the same photos displayed at the Rockers exhibition at Kaapelitehdas, Helsinki in 2015 with nearly 10.000 visitors. Entrance to Tiketti Galleria is free of charge and all works are for sale at the exhibition space and online at tiketti.fi/galleria from December 10th onwards.
Tiketti Galleria opened its doors in 2015 and aims to bring a touch of club-like atmosphere into the field of art and in return curates art one step closer to the friends of good music. This experimental art space that is situated on Urho Kekkosen katu in Helsinki, exhibits artists’ works in which music and art live side by side and mix harmoniously.
