George Michael shows off art collection
(music-news.com) - George Michael and his partner Kenny Goss are displaying their contemporary art collection across the water in a US gallery. The Goss-Michael Foundation's exhibition, in the couple's gallery in Dallas, Texas, is currently showcasing their collection of edgy, contemporary British art at their sleek gallery in Dallas' hip uptown area - just north of the skyscrapers that define the city's distinctive skyline.Goss says, "We want to expose the Dallas art community to work that they've quite potentially never seen if they weren't able to travel, these works that in some ways may be a little controversial for one thing, a little strong."But let's face it, art a lot of times is about sex, love, death, loss."Native Texan Goss, who has been with the singer for 12 years, says the gallery enables the pair to share a portion of Britain's art scene with a US audience: "It works great for us. We live in Britain almost all the time. We have a house here."So we collect amazing art in Britain, bring it to Dallas and everybody gets to see it. It keeps us busy in both places."
