Fueled by talented musicians, innovative artists and incredible writers, the tumultuous tides of the 60s in America challenged young souls to face the harsh reality of war, civil rights and extreme political change.
This extraordinary challenge inspired what could arguably be considered the most culturally significant and creatively unprecedented eras in history. Famous photographer Robert Altman was at the center of it all, determined to chronicle the life and times the Sixties inspired.
Robert Altman’s Rock, Roll & Remember Exhibition successfully captures the simultaneous cultural, social and sexual revolutions that embodied the Sixties in America. A generation built on the spirited, soulful sound of ’60s rock music, politically driven passions, the birth of active feminism and Abbie Hoffman‘s ‘yippies’.
Including iconic 1960s figures such as: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tina Turner, Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, Pete Townsend and Dennis Hopper, these rare, large format photographs, some measuring 8 feet high by 8 feet wide, were previously on view in Manhattan filling all 39 windows at Macy’s in Herald Square and on the grounds of the 1969 Woodstock Festival at The Museum at Bethel Woods.
