**Downtown New York Comes To Shoreditch…**
Rock Seen, Bob Gruen’s first major British exhibition in many years will be in the heart of Shoreditch and a collection of photographs of iconic punk and rock musicians, tracking the rock scene predominantly in Downtown New York in the Seventies. Photographs include John Lennon, Blondie, The Clash, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, the New York Dolls, Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol and many more. These and more photos also appear in Bob’s book Rock Seen that will be on sale at the exhibition.
Curated by Bob Gruen, Stephen Colegrave (author of Punk) and Smutty Smitt (of The Rockcats), Rock Seen will also include a Teenage Bedroom installation (as seen at MoMA), a selection of enlarged contact prints of the photos on display to show the context in which they were taken, and Gruen’s historic video clips from Max’s Kansas City that convey the excitement of the punk scene. Featured artists include Patti Smith, Wayne County, Blondie, Robert Gordon, David Johannsen and The Heartbreakers with Richard Hell.
There will be a pop-up cinema screening the Don Letts directed documentary ‘Rock & Roll Exposed – the Photography of Bob Gruen’ featuring interviews with Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Debbie Harry, Yoko Ono and others.
Rock Seen is part of the LDNY Festival that is bringing the best of New York to London and London to New York. www.ldnyfestival.com
