Interscope Celebrates 30th Anniversary With LACMA Exhibit Featuring Artwork Inspired by Dr. Dre, Kendrick, and More

Some of the world’s most significant current artists have joined forces to assist Interscope Records commemorate its 30th anniversary.


Interscope will display over 50 artworks inspired by the artists on its roster at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to commemorate the record label’s landmark year. Shepard Fairey, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Kehinde Wiley, Cecily Brown, Rashid Johnson, and Julie Curtiss are among those who have given works to the exhibition.

These artists were inspired by artists such as Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, Juice WRLD, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, U2, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac. Interscope co-founder Jimmy Iovine, chairman John Janick, music executive Josh Abaraham, and vice chairman Steve Berman coordinated the exhibition.


“Interscope’s original mission was to find the most profound artists, empower their creativity and watch what happens,” Iovine said in a statement. “For the 30th, we wanted to continue that vision by assembling the most admired visual artists and empower them with that same creative license to honor the musical artists we have worked with over three decades.”

They worked with Michael Govan, LACMA’s CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, who highlighted that the museum has long nurtured a collection of record art. “Seeing these performers reimagine three decades of famous modern music is exciting,” Govan added. More information about how to attend the exhibit, which opens on January 30, is available on the LACMA website.
