WHO SHOT ROCK & ROLL: EXHIBIT INFORMATION
Open to the public June 23 – October 7 at The Annenberg Space for Photography
Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present, organized by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator and author Gail Buckland, is the first major museum exhibit on rock and roll to spotlight the creative and collaborative role that photographers have played in the history of rock music. This exhibit, which features an original short documentary film produced exclusively for the Annenberg Space for Photography, catches and defines the energy, intoxication, rebellion and magic of rock and roll. It explores the photographs and photographers who captured rock's message of freedom and personal reinvention – and examines the effect their pictures have had on musicians, fans and culture itself.
