In a new (very interesting) profile in the New York Times about Jeff Jampol, who runs a private company that specializes in managing the estates of deceased famous musicians, an enticing tidbit of information was revealed regarding the estate of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. Jampol — whose other wide-ranging clients include Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, and the Doors — revealed that he has been working with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain on a touring art exhibition that would exclusively feature the late singer’s work.
The exhibit is still in its early stages of development, but will feature “Kurt’s works and his art and his possessions,” which Jampol notes is “going to be relevant for centuries.” He added: “He’s got some amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen or even heard of.” No other information is known at this time, but until then, the EMP Museum in Seattle is currently showing the memorabilia-heavy “Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses” for your Nirvana fix.
