Greetings from the glorious underdogs of the art-flux. Yours truly, COMMENTARIVM is proud to present “Scenes From Inside” by Dave Markey. 🏴
Over a year-long pleasure of working with legendary Dave Markey, we’ve collected a handsome stack of amazing imagery together, composed as a visual journal of Dave Markey’s work & life and over 50 years of Los Angeles history. Dave’s photos including members of Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Black Flag, Beck, Stephen Malkmus, a very young Lenny Kravitz (a small surprise) and ‘many many many more’ will be shown for the first time.
Along the photos we’ve been rewarded by Jennifer Schwartz interviewing Dave about his life’s work and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth writing the foreword!!!
“David’s films and photos were always in praise of the moment, not unlike the physical presences of Kurt Cobain or Yamatsuka Eye on the microphone, or Pat Smear and Bill Bartell at a dinner party, or Sofia Coppola emulating Joan Crawford, or even David’s fascination with clown masks designed for mirth but eliciting horror in their absurd take on possibly expressing the perverse id we all are shocked by.” — Thurston Moore on Dave Markey in his foreword for “Scenes From Inside”
