well, I travel at the speed of a reborn man
I got a lot of love to give
From the mirrors of my hand...

 

Jimi Hendrix & The Jimi Hendrix Experience, 'Message To Love' (1970)

 

Opening on Monday 14th September, the show is comprised of rare photographs of Hendrix — some never seen before — taken by acclaimed photographers including Ed Caraeff, Baron Wolman, Gered Mankowitz, David Montgomery (UK debut of his works), Ulvis Alberts and the late Charles Everest. 

Accompanying the photographs will be two sculptures by Guy Portelli entitled Hey Joe and Wight Spirit — a large-scale glass mosaic panel which features the handprints of more than 80 musicians who performed at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival, including the handprint of Hendrix himself which Portelli mapped via the iconic ‘hand on face’ photograph taken by Baron Wolman. 

In addition, the gallery will present the original Isle of Wight 1970 WEM speaker system used by Hendrix during his last major performance on British soil, including Hendrix’s personal fender neck headstock pieces and Univibe effects pedal.
