The Smiths and the death of Princess Diana
WHAT do The Smiths mean to you? To the Holden Gallery at Manchester Metropolitan University, for a show about the band:
A raft of art projects under the banner ‘The Gospel According To’ start next week with a major new exhibition showcasing how influential The Smiths have been in European arts and culture. The Part 1 will include video installations of contemporary artists Lucienne Cole tap-dancing to Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now, Lars Laumann explaining a conspiracy theory that Smiths classic The Queen Is Dead foretold Princess Diana’s demise, and Andrew Bracey’s animation of a bear dancing to This Charming Man.
It being what they would have wanted.
As foretold by the Manchester Evening News.
