This just in: EMP will be showing a major exhibition of all things Nirvana this coming spring! The show will be called “Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses,” and will premiere on April 16, 2011. The show will run for two years, and includes previously unexhibited artwork by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, handwritten lyrics for the band’s songs, and the first guitar Cobain ever destroyed onstage. Numerous photographs and all sorts of memorabilia and oddities — even Cobain’s potted-meat collection — will be on display. More than 100 oral histories about Cobain, Nirvana and the wildly popular late 1980s-early ’90s grunge scene (considered a subset of punk) have been assembled for the show. For more information about this exciting display, follow the link.
