FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO WOODSTOCK – The Golden Age of American Rock Posters


Date: 24/September/2011 - 31/December/2011

The exhibit presents the relics of a special period in the 20th-century history of culture, concentrating on the psychedelic rock posters of the San Francisco Bay Area, from between 1965 and 1971.

The period in question was a particularly intensive phase in, as well as the closure of, a time of ferment, and influenced popular culture and the lifestyle of generations worldwide to an extent that can hardly be overestimated. The posters are of interest not only on account of the musical events and participants they advertise, but also because they have value as works of visual art, which have surprising and particular links to the Central European traditions. The display also features other historical objects from that period, such as original record sleeves, manuscripts and instruments.

Free Guided Tours from 12 October organized by the KOGART Volunteer Program every Wednesday at 3pm and every Sunday at 11am (in Hungarian).
