Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 - Present

This exhibition has now closed.

Direct from its United States tour, Who Shot Rock & Roll opens at Auckland Art Gallery on 10 November 2012.

Who Shot Rock & Roll travels to New Zealand with 173 works from more than 100 photographers and many rare and never-before-exhibited images. Photographers include Diane Arbus, Roberta Bayley, Henry Diltz, Godlis, Dennis Hopper, David LaChappelle, Annie Leibovitz, Linda McCartney and Albert Watson.

Organised by the Brooklyn Museum and curated by photographic historian and author Gail Buckland, Who Shot Rock & Roll is the first museum exhibition to acknowledge photographers for their collaborative and creative role in the history of popular music.

Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 - Present is the exhibition of the book of the same title authored by Gail Buckland. Signed copies will be available for sale in the Gallery shop.
