Known as "Kurt," the SAM event "will explore the ways in which the grunge movement's most iconic figure continues to influence modern artists from a multitude of disciplines," according to an announcement by Darling. The curator also said that the exhibit "asks viewers to question why and how Kurt Cobain came to mean so much to a generation."
In celebration of the event's launch, the Seattle Art Museum will host a discussion between Darling and acclaimed Nirvana biographer Charles R. Cross on Friday, May 14. Early Nirvana photographer Charles Peterson's work is included among the art in the exhibit, which also counts a cardboard Cobain bust by Scott Fife, plus work by Rodney Graham, Douglas Gordon, Alice Wheeler and Elizabeth Peyton.
