From PSFK: San Francisco gallery-goers will be able to spice up their regular routine on August 8th. Expected to contain over 100 works of art, this show will pay homage to the seemingly countless roles and angles of one man: Bill Murray. “The Murray Affair” is hosted by San Francisco event space and gallery Public Works, and is conceived by curator, musician, and promoter Ezra Croft. In a time when many art lovers are feeling pop-culturally inundated by snarky memes and TV references, the show seeks to bring about a thoughtful — but also fun — gathering of the actor’s admirers.
Croft explained to VICE’s Creator’s Project, “it’s an homage to Bill Murray through a narrative art process. With Murray, a lot of people think you’re riding off the coattails of his fame, but I don’t feel like that. This is taking something idyllic and the concept of him as a public figure and we’re rooting off of it and make art out of it. It’s fun. He’s an interesting guy. He has a lot of personas that people can interpret. We got to watch him develop from the 70s up until now, and we’ve loved Murray throughout all of it.”
