Backstage Pass

For better or worse, rock & roll has soundtracked a shifting American culture since its mid-twentieth century genesis. With powerhouse hits and primally-charged world tours, rockstars may be the stuff of fear, fascination and die-hard fandoms but who are they when the spotlights fade to black? Drawing from the archives of renowned photographers like Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Neal Preston, Henry Diltz, Ethan Russell and Timothy White among others granted utterly intimate access to the green rooms and sidelines where music legends are truly made, Morrison Hotel Gallery presents its latest online exhibition, Backstage Pass. From the trans-Atlantic breakthrough of Beatlemania to the off-stage antics of rock royalty, this online exhibition of 120+ fine art images offers fans an all-access (and socially distant) glimpse behind the curtain and some of the most legendary nights in music history starting Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

As an added bonus, press play here for a soundtrack featuring exhibition-inspired songs and the stories behind select works as told by the photographers themselves.
