Andy Gershon has been a tastemaker in the music industry for the past 25 years, discovering and nurturing careers of artists from The Smashing Pumpkins and Ozzy Osbourne, to Moby and The White Stripes. From working in a record store in Kansas City throughout high school, to promoting concerts in college, to managing bands in Los Angeles, Gershon was then offered to run Sir Richard Branson’s label in New York.
Gershon has been at the forefront of musical trends over the course of over his impressive thirty-year career. A Personal Musical Archive 1978-1994 will display an array of the ticket stubs collected by Gershon, including stubs of concerts by iconic musicians such as David Bowie, James Brown, Live Aid, and Nirvana. Collectively, these keepsakes illustrate the inspiration behind and love Gershon has put into his career.
Gershon has been included in several group shows in New York City, and had his first solo show, “Photourist”, in Kansas City, MO this past May at Weinberger Fine Art. His works are in collections throughout New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
