Who Shot Rock & Roll is the newest exhibit to open at the Annenberg Space for Photography, located in Century City. This mini-museum is dedicated to the community of Los Angeles and is an “…initiative of the Annenberg Foundation and its trustees…” Admission is always Free.
Many of the exhibits at the Annenberg Space for Photography are kid-friendly, but Who Shot Rock & Roll may not be suitable for all ages, since in this case the subject matter includes the Sex and Drugs that often accompany the Rock & Roll. Parental guidance is suggested.
The exhibit features the work of photographers such as Amy Arbus, Diane Arbus, Roberta Bayley, Ed Caraeff, Stephanie Chernikowski, Danny Clinch, Ed Colver, Anton Corbijn, Henry Diltz, Jill Furmanovsky, Godlis, Lynn Goldsmith, Jean-Paul Goude, Bob Gruen, Ross Halfin, Dennis Hopper, Richard Kern, David LaChapelle, Michael Lavine, Annie Leibovitz, Laura Levine, Gered Mankowitz, Jim Marshall, Ryan McGinley, Marcia Resnick, Stephane Sednaoui, Norman Seeff, Mark Seliger, Pennie Smith, Storm Thorgerson, Albert Watson, Guy Webster and many others.
The Los Angeles showing of this exhibit is the only one on the West coast of the United States and will include an original documentary film produced exclusively for the Annenberg Space for Photography, featuring appearances by recording artists such as Alice Cooper and Henry Rollins, as well as rock photography über-collector Michael Ochs, Grammy-winning album cover designer Gary Burden and guest curator and author Gail Buckland.
The film is an amazing glimpse into the world of Rock & Roll Photography and is not to be missed.
The Annenberg Space for Photography has partnered with Los Angeles public radio station KCRW (89.9FM) to create a live music series during the month of July, that will be free and open to the public.
Admission to the Annenberg Space for Photography is always free.
