Award-winning photographer Michael Weintrob’s INSTRUMENTHEAD series returns to New Orleans during the Jazz & Heritage Festival with a pop-up exhibit running from April 27 – May 6. The two week fine-art extravaganza takes place on Oak Street (across from Jacque-Imo’s restaurant) and features live music, food and book signings.
There will be a kick-off celebration on Friday, April 27th at 8:00 PM with performances by legendary musicians Papa Mali & Bobby Vega.
The INSTRUMENTHEAD pop-up will also be teaming up with the New Orleans Musicians Clinic & Assistance Foundation, to benefit the foundation. Weintrob explains, “I am so excited to return to New Orleans to share my work. New Orleans is one of the cultural epicenters of the planet for music, food, and art, and I’m honored to exhibiting my INSTRUMENTHEAD portraits and book in a way that can give back to the community.”
The INSTRUMENTHEAD exhibit comprises a vast collection of striking portraits shot since 2006, portraying diverse entertainers shown with their instruments obscuring their faces. Subjects include: Bootsy Collins, Mickey Hart, Junior Brown, Scott Avett of the Avett Brothers, and Derek Trucks. In the INSTRUMENTHEAD book, Weintrob has captured uniquely intimate expressions of 369 artists and their instruments, without ever showing their faces.
