Evolution of music photography captured in new exhibition





Featuring Sade, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, John Cage, The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, and more.

A new exhibition devoted to the evolution of music photography, called Studio to Stage, is opening at Pace’s NYC gallery this June.

Exploring exchanges across genres, ages, and locations, the exhibition features photography by Peter Hujar, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Janette Beckman, Robert Frank and more.

Spanning early jazz, NYC hip hop, British punk, European techno and beyond, Studio to Stage includes photos of Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop, and Sade.

Ultimately, the exhibition hopes to reveal “the ways that photographers have helped cultivate mythologies around performers and their respective scenes.”

Studio to Stage will run from the 29th June — 19th August at Pace New York.
