ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
After decades hidden away, Julie Kramer unearthed and unveiled THE BASEMENT ARCHIVES: THE GHOSTS OF WFNX: VOLUME I in Lynn, MA last year. Now, she’s back with VOLUME II, this time taking over BCAE with over 100 portraits and live concert images of celebrity musicians from the heyday of modern rock — the 1980's and 1990's.
The exhibition features both color and black-and-white analog images, including portraits of Blondie’s Debbie Harry, X’s John Doe and Exene Cervenka, The Jam’s Paul Weller, The B52s, The Clash’s Joe Strummer, The Replacement’s Paul Westerberg, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Stooges’ Iggy Pop, The Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, Bjork, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Liz Phair, Talking Head’s Tina Weymouth, and dozens more.
VOLUME II at the BCAE also showcases modern rock heroes from Boston, including Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis, Letters to Cleo’s Kay Hanley, Buffalo Tom, Throwing Muses’ Tanya Donelly and Kristin Hirsh, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Lemonhead’s Evan Dando, Pixies’ Black Francis, and Morphine.
Julie Kramer may be best known as the beloved on-air radio personality for WFNX’s "Leftover Lunch." After WFNX, she continued on-air at RadioBDC and is now on-air on Indie617. She earned her MFA in Photography from University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.
Prints will be for sale.
