Manson exhibition on course for Dublin
The Golden Age of Grotesque set for Irish show
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 04 Oct 2002
The Hollywood glitterati were out in force last week as Marilyn Manson's The Golden Age Of Grotesque opened for business at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibition Center.
Over 20 of the boy Warner's watercolours were sold, with Flea, Nicholas Cage and Jack Osbourne among the buyers.
"Flea purchased Elizabeth Short As Snow White (A Smile I)," reveals a spokesman, "Jack picked up Harlequin Jack & The Absinthe Bunny and Nic Cage is the new owner of Hand Of Glory."
As exclusively revealed in Hot Press, Dublin's Apollo Gallery has been appointed official Irish exhibitor of his work, and plans to bring the show here in early 2003.
The Golden Age Of Grotesque is also the title of the new Marilyn Manson album which is due next month.
According to the God Of Fuck, "It will make people want to have sex. The subject matter is more related to people's festishes and how that motivates their behaviour. The rhythm is very important because I'm trying to get across my sexual nature. I'm putting down some dirty beats that'll probably be played in strip bars."
