Idea Generation would like to invite you to the private launch viewing of: The Sixties: Photographs by Robert Altman
At Idea Generation Gallery. Robert Altman will be attending.
For full details, please see attached invite.
Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane famously said: “If you can remember anything about the sixties, you weren’t really there."
Clearly, Paul Kantner didn’t have a camera.
This summer, Idea Generation Gallery invites you to take a trip…
…down Memory Lane, through Haight-Ashbury and across Golden Gate Park to turn on, tune in, drop out at the naked love-ins and anti-war sit-ins; at the psychedelic be-ins and the politicised happenings and meditate upon the spirit, body and soul of The Sixties - the first UK exhibition from Robert Altman, chief staff photographer of Rolling Stone, at Idea Generation Gallery (16th July to 29th August.)
The exhibition brings together 60 of the most powerful images from Altman’s extensive portfolio. As one of the lead Rolling Stone photographers in the magazine’s heyday of the late sixties and early seventies, Altman’s exquisitely candid shots capture the luminaries of every sphere of influence – from politics and music through to the everyday revolutionaries and children of free love – and creates an extraordinary photographic journey through the historic moments of political; social and cultural revolution that have come to define ‘The Sixties’.
