Michael Jackson, King of Pop Art

Michael Jackson is inseparable from his astronomical celebrity. It was his making and his tragedy. It glows with a bright, mournful edge from every one of these exhibits, probing the question of what might have been if his enormous success had not in some way required, or at least contributed to, his eventual annihilation. An exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery gathers together the work of forty-eight disparate artists exploring the legacy of perhaps the most frequently depicted cultural figure in history, and his fame is their common palette.
