Courtney Love Proclaims “Kurt-Free Zone” At Solo Art Show

Is Courtney Love ready for yet another comeback? After a tumultuous few weeks, including revelations that Love has lost control of former husband Kurt Cobain’s image to her daughter thanks to an outstanding debt and now-retracted Twitter accusations that former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl was fiddling with that same daughter, there is a bit of silver lining appearing around Love’s dark cloud.

Not only did her band Hole reunite for the first time in eons with all of the members who played on the band’s last record, Celebrity Skin, for a quick set in Brooklyn recently, but this week a show of Love’s artwork—titled “And She’s Not Even Pretty”—has its debut at the Manhattan art gallery Fred Torres Collaborations.

The show, which features 45 original pieces by Love, is open through June 15 and, as she told The Huffington Post, it’s a “Kurt-free zone.”

"A lot of this collection is about one romance," Love said. "It’s embracing this thing in my life that haunted me.”
