From a stage full of Santas to crowdsurfing in a bubble, rock fans know Flamings Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is capable of creating a spectacle. In October, Coyne will bring his visual vagaries to the American Visionary Art Museum in Federal Hill.
Coyne is among the headliners of “The Big Hope,” an exhibition focusing on “transcendent survival,” according to the museum. Coyne’s installation, called “King’s Mouth,” is based on the Flaming Lips’ near-death experience being robbed at gunpoint in his Oklahoma hometown. Coyne often says the 1978 incident helped unlock the creativity that has dazzled us ever since.
Coyne is among dozens of artist featured in the show. Also on the list are photographer Bob Adams as well as artists Margaret Munz-Losch and Jackie Sumell. The show opens Oct. 3.
