Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki will present the popular photographic exhibition, Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 – Present and RadioLIVE is a proud partner.
Direct from its United States’ tour, Who Shot Rock & Roll opens at Auckland Art Galley on 10 November 2012.
One hundred and seventy three works from more than one hundred photographers many of which are rare and never-before-exhibited images. Who Shot Rock & Roll is the first museum exhibition to acknowledge photographers for their collaborative and creative role in the history of popular music.
‘Through Who Shot Rock & Roll, we continue to build on our international programme of presenting high quality exhibitions to Auckland,’ says Gallery Director Chris Saines. ‘Who Shot Rock & Roll is a vibrant and engaging depiction of the revolutionary history of rock & roll. From Allen Tannenbaum’s John and Yoko in Bed to the frenzied energy of a mosh-pit captured by Charles Peterson, this exhibition provides a wonderful opportunity for New Zealanders to experience the influential work of many talented international photographers up close.’
The Auckland exhibition is the first time Who Shot Rock & Roll will have travelled outside of the United States. It is the second international exhibition presented by Auckland Art Gallery since its reopening on 3 September 2011.
Who Shot Rock & Roll will run from 10 November for three months and RadioLIVE as a proud partner will have tickets to the exhibition to give away very soon so stay tuned! Below you can find examples of what will be appearing at the show
