Organized by the Skirball Cultural Center, this first comprehensive retrospective of the legendary rock impresario Bill Graham features objects that explore some of the 20th century’s momentous cultural transformations through the lens of rock & roll. This unique experience will offer an introduction to the exhibition’s highlights by its coordinating curator, Cristian Petru Panaite, followed by exclusive access to explore the gallery and its rich samplings of music from the era.

Cristian Petru Panaite, associate curator of exhibitions at New-York Historical, is the coordinating curator of Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution.
