THE NEW YORK
Multimedia Touring Exhibition
by Bob Gruen
The Music Photo Gallery is thrilled to present the Official Multimedia Touring Exhibition, "John Lennon: The New York Years," by Bob Gruen, the iconic Rock and Roll photographer of all time. Through Gruen's lens, this exhibition delves into the life of John Lennon and Yoko Ono during the 1970s, offering an intimate glimpse into New York City during the nascent stages of a movement that would come to define an entire generation and change the world for generations to come.
This exhibition showcases the most compelling aspects of John and Yoko's relationship, Lennon's role as a father, a former Beatle, and a rockstar at the height of his fame, along with his band, concerts, parties, and moments of intimacy and rest. It offers a deep look at John Lennon as a person beyond his internationally recognized image, a "behind-the-scenes" perspective that only his close friend could have captured.
Ultimately, the goal of this exhibition is to share the message of "Peace and Love" with as many people as possible, both now and in the future. Through this exhibition, we hope to inspire current and future generations with the ideals that John Lennon and Yoko Ono fought for, and to encourage people to pursue their dreams, advocate for change, and strive for a better world.
A Record Exhibition in South América
New York rock photographer Bob Gruen’s show “The John Lennon Exhibition” brought in a whopping 400,000 visitors over a three-week run in Buenos Aires at the Recoleta Cultural Center. The show, which wrapped up yesterday, coincided with a Spanish-language edition of Gruen’s book, “John Lennon: The New York Years” — which has already been published in English, Japanese, German and French. Gruen flew to Argentina for the show’s opening festivities,
and even handled DJ duties at an after-party. The shutterbug, who’s also shot Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Joe Strummer, had served as Lennon’s personal photographer during the former Beatle’s New York years, including taking the iconic photos of Lennon
in an NYC T-shirt plus the first-ever babypictures of son Sean Lennon.
