Who Shot Rock & Roll

The Annenberg Space For Photography in Los Angeles presents an original exhibition of Rock & Roll photography that shifts the focus from the subject of the photo to the person behind the camera. The exhibition honors those who were around to capture the staggering photos that have immortalized the most iconic musicians in the world and today define our vision of Rock culture.

The exhibition is accompanied by three consecutive Saturday performances in the courtyard outside of the venue. July 14th began the three weeks of concerts with a sold out Moby show. Portugal. The Man gave an amazing performance July 21st in a tribute show for the 40th anniversary of the release of T.Rex’s establishing album
The Slider in 1972. The band is one of many that have been stylistically influenced by the glam Rock British group. Raphael Saadiq & Band of Skulls will be the last show in the series on August 4th. The bands will perform covers of Bob Dylan that celebrate the album Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, which features covers by over 80 musicians. The events are free but require RSVP.

The photography exhibition will run until the end of October.
