SHOW! An Exhibit of Live Music Photography Since the Mid-Sixties
In every society from the Baroque and Classical periods to the modern day amplified pop and rock concert, live music has been there to capture our emotions and serve as a release from our daily lives. It can be a voice of rebellion, the vehicle for an idea, or an expression of love and heartbreak.
Live music brings people together in the present; it happens and it’s over, and a number of people lived it for a number of minutes. Photographs freeze the moment and extend its reach. A silent image can carry the punch of an entire moment—the sound, the energy, raw live experience– whatever happened between the musician, the stage, and the audience, even though that moment faded long ago. A photograph can take someone there.
Although SHOW covers recent photography of live music since the mid-sixties, from large scale concerts to the smallest club shows, the unity and excitation transcend any moment in time. Please join us in an examination of that excitement.
