The exhibition catalog offers a chance to relive this founding cultural phenomenon in American history. Bringing together exceptional posters, records, and rare items from the day, it also places photography in the spotlight, notably through the photographs of Alfred Wertheimer, Bruce Davidson, Marion Post Wolcott, Ernest C. Withers, and William Eggleston. This exceptional iconography retraces the origins of rock’n’roll and guides us through the history of its main players.
