Some may say that Grimes has already sold her soul, but she’s literally doing so to the highest bidder at her first solo art show. Best know for music, Grimes told Bloomberg, “I see myself as a visual artist first and foremost, and I’ve always felt strange that people know me for music.”
Grimes’ art will be on show simultaneously in online exhibitions at both the Gallery Platform and Maccarone, Los Angeles from 28 May.
The show, titled Selling Out, features art created by Grimes over the last ten years, and includes prints, drawings and digital art. Perhaps the most controversial piece is also titled Selling Out, and is a legal document which grants the purchaser a piece of Grimes’ soul and will sell to the highest bidder.
