“HIP! Portraits of Cool by ART PERRY – forty years of counterculture icons

Galerie Rye – April 1 to may 3
ARTIST TALK 6PM followed by reception 7pm
Live music by Takk

What’s hip?

Ask Lou. When yet another velveteen interviewer attempted to question Lou Reed about the meaning of cool he answered: ‘I know your type. … If you weren’t a journalist you’d never be invited to anything hip.’ Ouch. And double ouch.

Today’s nu-hipsters have shamelessly kidnapped hip. Let’s set the record straight: the term hip goes way back to the 1700s and gained its modern cachet when used by the original Bebop jazz hipsters in the 1940s … long before Vice mag, Holga cameras and vintage one-speed CCM bikes. Hip comes from the African verb hepi (to see) or hipi (to open one’s eyes.) In other words it means enlightenment. How hip’s that?

So this gets us to the heart o’ hip … it’s not only about style but about awareness. You can’t just pose and be hip. That’s faux-hip or hipsterama. To be truly hip you have to be cool (that’s a given) but also be enlightening. You must give the world something amazingly creative along with your ‘look.’

As a photographer Art Perry has engaged the ‘look’ in his portraits of people who’ve been offbeat or innovative iconoclasts.

The cultural icons in this exhibition run from Rudolf Nurveyev to Devendra Banhart. They’re the real goods carrying authenticity and artistry, the twin handmaidens of hip. Yes Lou’s here. So are Dizzy Gillespie, Patti Smith, Werner Herzog, Joe Strummer, Allen Ginsberg, Max von Sydow, Laurie Anderson, Leon Golub, William Klein, Nick Cave, Philip Glass, Louise Bourgeois, Antony Hegarty, Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes), The Handsome Family and Lady Diana … What? She’s hip? Sure is. C’mon she took on the English monarchy, showed compassion for AIDS and cluster bomb victims and in utter hippness said: ‘Being a princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. … I don’t go by the rule book… I lead from the heart, not the head.’

Galerie Rye’s HIP! portraits of cool exhibition is the first time Art Perry’s counterculture portraits have been shown all together. His images are as honest as his subjects. Never a studio photographer Perry has taken these portraits over the past forty years with a handheld camera and fast film in hotel rooms, backstage, backyards, street corners, cafes and studios. Always the intimacy and spontaneity of the moment are revealed in a naked truth. This is the history of hip.


Art Perry is not only one of Canada’s best kept underground secrets; he’s also a bona-fide bohemian guru. For forty years Perry’s life has engaged, befriended, supported, taught and documented the often-marginal cultural figures he admires.

Best known for his Penguin Putnam publication THE TIBETANS: photographs – the result of five years travel throughout Himalayan Buddhist and nomadic communities – Perry has paralleled this photographing and writing about oppressed world communities with his ongoing religious belief in and valuing of the holiness within outsider culture … culture that goes counter to the mainstream.

An associate professor in cultural studies at Emily Carr University, Vancouver, Art Perry teaches the marriage of art and life. In his lectures on the Beat Generation he continues to practice what he preaches: art, poetry, music come from the extremes of living. As a result Perry’s silver print portraits of counterculture icons carry an empathy and deep passionate commitment to creative bohemian outlaws.”



Sunday, April 3rd
Doors: 6:45pm
Show: 7:30pm
NOTE: Early start time!
In the 1950s to be Beat was not about wearing a beret, growing a goatee and casually interrupting a Cold War ode with a bongo. That was the beatnik, not the Beat … the hipster, not the hip … the poser, not the poet.

Using new music (be it rock-n-roll or jazz) and fueled by drugs, alcohol, espresso and libido sciendi (forbidden knowledge) the disciples of postwar hip – from Serge Gainsbourg to Patti Smith – have shaken the fat of the bourgeoisie by being authentically cool.  Join Blue Sunshine for a look at what Hip is, what it means to be hip and where these hip ideas come from.  At this one night event Art Perry will discuss and present with the aid of music, film clips and slides of his own documentary photography – the hip aesthetic and what makes bona fide cool.

This show runs in conjunction with Art Perry’s photography exhibit HIP! Portraits of Cool at Galerie Rye (1331A Rue St-Catherines), running April 1 to May 3.  The show includes Perry’s portraits of Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Dizzy Gillespie, Joe Strummer, Devendra Banhart, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson and more.”

Lemon Chill – Sentant – “Reflections”

Sabrina’s Secret Stash on NYC’s electronic, nu-disco, synth-loving DJ/production duo, Holy Ghost! (Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel) Highly influenced by late 70s, early 80s synth music, the album is already on my best of list along with Beth Ditto‘s Ep!) Their highly addictive, danceable debut, self-titled album will be released Tuesday, April 5th in North America on DFA Records.  The same day that they will be in town opening for Cut Copy @ Club Soda (1225, boul Saint-Laurent) !  A show and album not to be missed (synth aficionados will surely dig these sounds and beats!  We sure did @ MMA! ) Some serious old/new skool jams burning up our MMA dancefloor! This one is going to be a spring/summer album in heavy rotation!

file under: nu-disco, electro, synth-pop, Italdisco, alternative dance, new wave, funk

If you dig Holy Ghost! check out some the musicians who have influenced them:  New Order, Giorgio Moroder, Italian electronic musician/producer, ALexander Robotnick, soul/ disco singer Sylvester, Pet Shop Boys, Human League, LCD Soundsystem, Rick James to name a few…

Holy Ghost!‘s debut has a few guest appearances from the likes of Juan MacLean, late drummer Jerry Fuchs, Luke Jenner of The Rapture, Chris Glover, aka Penguin Prison, and Michael McDonald on album closer, “Some Children”

Songs played : “Hold On,” “Hold My Breath,” “I Will Come Back,” and “Static on the Wire

I Will Come Back, is pretty much a shot-for-shot remake of New Order‘s “Confusion” video, including Arthur Baker reprising his role from the original. The song is included on excellent “Static on the Wire” EP, released on the 18 May 2010 and on the self-titled Lp!
