Thread started 09/08/17 12:45pm





Prince.org, the largest and longest running Prince fansite, in collaboration with The Violet Reality, are pleased to announce the news of Steve Parke’s UK Gallery show at Proud Galleries in London - from the 9th November to the 3rd December.

‘Picturing Prince: Photographs by Steve Parke’ is a collection of rare and intimate prints to coincide with the recent launch of Parke’s acclaimed photobook. The exhibition will reveal the unique collaboration between artist and art director, while illustrating Prince’s flamboyant persona and playful characteristics, culminated in an image of gender fluidity and sexual expression.

Prince and Parke met in the late 80s at the artist’s renowned private estate and recording studio, Paisley Park, described by the latter as a ‘mecca of creativity’. Their partnership was consolidated when Prince requested Parke to be his official photographer, a creative alliance that produced an extensive archive of over 500 photographs, the best of which will be on display at Proud from 9th November to 3rd December.

There will be an exclusive, invite-only launch on the 8th November at the Proud Central Gallery, 32 John Adam St, London, WC2N GBP. Steve Parke himself will be in attendance to launch the gallery exhibit, which will open to the public the following morning! The Violet Reality will also be in attendance to cover the event for YouTube and prince.org.

This promises to be an incredible exhibit for all fans, so we hope to see you there!
