Clubs, Joints and Honky-Tonks, an exhibition curated by curator of photography Tim B. Wride, will feature bodies of work and essays by David Scheinbaum, Jeff Dunas, Henry Horenstein, Moby, and other photographers who have immersed themselves in shooting live country, hip-hop, rock and the blues performances. Also showing will be Heavy Metal Parking Lot, the 1986 video documentary about Judas Priest fans. The exhibition, which includes 75 images, will open with images from Eliott Landy, well known for his visual documentation of Woodstock in 1969. The show opens June 21 and runs through Sept. 2.
“In all of the works that are featured in Clubs, Joints, and Honky-Tonks, there is a sophisticated, yet seemingly effortless merging of music genres and performance with the strategies and techniques employed by the photographers," Wride says in a statement about the show. "This complex interweaving and reconciliation of performance, environment, and image-making could only be achieved by photographers whose understanding and passion for the music is matched by the creativity and courage of their talent.”
